Dr. William Sutherland was of the osteopathic tradition which philosophized that all healing is dependent upon blood circulation. But Dr. Sutherland was an ardent observer, noting subtle pulsations in the cranium and throughout the entire body, and the first descriptions of the cranial sacral respiratory mechanism are generally attributed to him. He went on to develop these concepts and theories into a therapeutic form which became the basis of modern-day cranial sacral therapy.
Dr. Major Bertrand DeJarnette, whose life was saved by spinal manipulation, had personal experience of the innate energy traveling along the nervous system as described by D.D. Palmer. He went on to become a personal student of Dr. William Sutherland and understood the importance of the phenomenon of the cranial sacral respiratory mechanism. Even the wisdom and instruction of the masters of the day could not convince him that any system really understood the entirety of how the vital force was best mobilized and utilized throughout the human body. He dedicated his entire life and resources to uncovering the mysteries of innate intelligence. Having set about this formidable task, he found an inescapable path of discovery whose twists and turns plagued his very existence until he satisfactorily completed his mission.
Dr. DeJarnette developed a system of analysis and therapies to support blood flow, lymphatic congestion and nutrient bioavailability to the central nervous system. 80% of the central nervous system lies within the cranium. Cranial therapy is a powerful therapy to support one's health.
Organ / Visceral Therapy
Organs are necessary for proper chemical metabolism and nutrient delivery to tissues. Organs are suspended by ligaments that are connected to your skeletal system (bones).
Supporting organ function and position can help relieve chronic pain patterns. Headaches and regions (not pin-point pain) of pain are often due to troubled organ(s) systems.
Each low back, pelvic, & neck distortion(s) cause abnormal muscular tension patterns which often shift arms and legs from functioning properly.
In between muscles, runs arteries, veins and lymphatic vessels. When muscles become tense these important features can become compromised leading to numbness, tingling, weakness and much more in hands and feet.
Nutritional Laboratory Analysis / Functional Medicine
Approximately 90% of our patient’s have blood and/or hormone issues and often times both. This is because of Standard American Diet (SAD) which is low in essential fatty acids and high in saturated fats. Diet is the main item that you, the patient, can control to assist you to a healthy state. When you eat foods that are not helpful to the body which often suppresses the immune system causes issues in multiple organs. This is when we will advise you to take advantage of our Functional Medicine program.
We term this service “Functional Medicine” because it works to normalize physiology through diet, lifestyle modification, and if needed nutritional supplementation.
