Cranial osteopathic manipulative medicine
is a unique form of manipulation
where you start by measuring
the cranial rhythmic impulse.
The normal cranial rhythmic impulse
is between 10 and 14.
And you monitor for expansion
and contraction of the skull.
You monitor the motion, you
monitor the symmetry,
and it gives you information into
what’s going on with the pulse.
It changes in different states,
different emotions, and in different people.
So you know what the person’s normal
cranial rhythmic impulse is
and you help monitor it and note it.
And if there is restricted
motion in the skull,
flexion and extension of bones,
interruption between the flow between
the head and the sacrum.
Those are things that we could treat
with gentle enhancements, gentle pressure,
and holding of other areas of the skull
so that full motion is returned.
So cranial osteopathic
is a distinct and unique
form of manipulation.
