Osteopathic manual medicine is a gentle, hands-on treatment that addresses the underlying causes of many medical problems. Osteopathic manual medicine can improve the function of all body systems through addressing structural components of the body. The trouble might lie in the relationship of bone to bone or bone to muscle, the blood supply and drainage to a problem area, the motion of the connective tissues or membranes, or in the ability of the nerves to do the job they were designed to do.

Cranial osteopathy is significantly different from cranio-sacral therapy. To learn more, click here.

"Of all the physicians involved in my son´s care, Dr. Sorrel is the most down-to-earth and pragmatic. I can listen to the many competing specialists involved in the care of my son´s multiple disabilities and know that Margaret will help me digest it all and work out a reasonable, prudent and medically sound course of action. Her "mother´s point-of-view" and her expert skill in supporting optimal physical development by means of osteopathy make her an outstanding healer. She is an irreplaceable ally for children with special needs and their parents."
