Bio Cranial Therapy
Bio Cranial Therapy, also referred to as The Bio Cranial System was discovered and developed in the 1970’s and 80’s by Robert Boyd, D.O., a U.K. Registered Osteopath. While based upon the discovery by Dr. William Garner Sutherland of the rhythmic Primary Respiratory Mechanism (PRM), the philosophical principles of Bio Cranial set this System apart from other cranial based disciplines.
A unique feature of Bio Cranial Therapy is the discovery by Dr. Boyd of a previously unknown level of weakness in the structure of practically everyone, going back to birth. The specific nature of this “weakness” provides the predisposition toward the development of a virtually unlimited range of disorders, dysfunctions, and illnesses. More importantly, the principle of Bio Cranial Therapy also incorporates the means of addressing these fundamental weaknesses.
The variety of disorders for which Bio Cranial has been found helpful include, but are not limited to, the following:
Structural Disorders: Sciatica, low back pain, neck pain and shoulder pain/restrictions, rib subluxations and scoliosis.
Extremity Disorders: Sports injuries and overuse syndromes involving the knees, elbows and ankles, feet and hands.
Systemic Disorders: Migraine headaches, asthma, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, colitis, tinnitus, arthritis, sleep apnea, anxiety and depression.
Children’s Disorders: Cerebral palsy, ADD, ADHD, earache.
