OSTEOPATHY TREATMENT – AND THE BLOCKADES ARE GONE!
Osteopathy is a holistic, manual therapy to treat dysfunction, pain and to release blockages throughout the body. The different structures such as bones, muscles, tendons and organs are treated. Osteopathy is not only practised in acute or chronic stages, but also has a preventive effect.
Osteopaths know mechanisms that can counteract a bite malposition. They help to restore dysfunctional structures with manual techniques back to their original movements and remove blockages. Osteopathy is an interdisciplinary therapeutic approach for jaw joint discomfort, as it considers and treats the body as a whole.

WHAT IS OSTEOPATHY?
Osteopathy is still a relatively young medical direction. It was developed more than 130 years ago by the American physician Andrew Taylor Still (1828-1917) and is based on the following idea: “Any change in mobility in the musculoskeletal system in the sense of hypo-(too little) or hyper-(too much) mobility leads to a dysfunction, which in turn can trigger a clinical picture.”
The osteopath treats the sick, not the disease – and this gently and painlessly: only with his hands does he release blockages in the body and thus relieves discomfort and pain. In practice, osteopathy has proven itself in many disciplines, including dentistry.
Cranio Sacrale Osteopathy
This fascinating area of osteopathy deals with the treatment of the complex structure of the skull bones and membranes in the skull as well as the direct, connective tissue connection to the sacbiltoty. The starting point of diagnosis and therapy is the craniosacrale rhythm, which, like the heart and respiratory rhythm, represents an independent body rhythm. With this rhythm, the osteopath works in the diagnosis and treatment of body and organ disorders. Osteopathy (Cranio Sacrale Therapy) is already used in infants or young children, e.g. in crying children or skull asymmetries caused by a mother’s too narrow pelvis at birth or a pincer or suction bell birth. Asymmetries, tensions or compressions of the skull can exert an increased pull on the dura mater (hard protective skin around the brain and spinal cord), which continues to the cross and coccyx. Conversely, problems in the pelvic area can reach up to the head and cause discomfort there.
Relief or healing in Cranio Sacral Osteopathy usually takes place not by merely correcting a finding, but by supporting and mobilizing the self-healing powers.
