Frequently Asked Question.

Is Osteopathy covered by insurance?


Treatments or portions of treatments are covered under most extended health care plans. Please check with your insurance provider for more information.




Do Osteopathic practitioners do Craniosacral therapy?


The foundations of Craniosacral therapy have their birthplace in Osteopathy. Beginning in the early 1900s, the American Osteopath William Garner Sutherland extended Osteopathic principles into the cranial area as he performed research first on himself and then on patients. He pointed out that this extension was already part of Osteopathy as laid out by its discoverer, Andrew Taylor Still. Further, Sutherland and his students remarked that the movement of the cranial mechanism was not only limited to the cranial-sacral axis, but extended throughout the entire body. After Sutherland’s passing, several individuals within the Osteopathic community taught cranial-specific techniques as a separate therapy.




Are you a Doctor?


No, Osteopathic practitioners are not doctors.




Where did Osteopathy originate?


Osteopathy originated in the southern United States during the mid-1800’s.




What age is treatment appropriate?


Any age and stage of life. Treatment is appropriate for newborns, children, adults (including expectingmothers) and the elderly.




When do I come back?


Depending on how the treatment went and the response of your body, your practitioner will let you know when to return for a follow up. Generally, this is 2 weeks or more.




How often do I need treatment?


Acute issues will generally require several treatments, while chronic issues may take more. Some people who have had their issues resolved prefer to have maintenance treatments to prevent the issues from recurring and/or to prevent new issues from arising – similar to getting a check-up at the dentist.
