Cranial Osteopathy and Cranio-sacral therapy

Our Osteopathic Manual Practitioners at Beachealth have completed a 5 year double degree university program at Victoria University in Australia for Osteopathy. This qualifies them to practice osteopathy and in Australia under the title of Doctor. The basic training of cranial osteopathic technique is given during the medical degree, but some Osteopaths specialize at post graduate level.

In the 1970’s Cranio-Sacral therapy embraced these osteopathic techniques. However, most Cranio-Sacral Therapists are not Osteopaths, and not all therapists have a background in anatomy, physiology, pathology, diagnosis and biomechanics. Therefore they are unable to offer a valid working diagnosis which is essential prior to application of treatment.
