Christiaan believes in the bodies innate ability to self-heal and self-regulate, as described by the founder of Osteopathy in 1874; Andrew Taylor Still. Christiaan follows the principle that imbalances in the human structure contribute to or are directly related to the development and/or maintenance of disease. Through treatment, Christiaan emphasizes the relationship between the structure and function of the human body.
Using various principles based manual techniques, Christiaan focuses on facilitating the health of joints and muscles through adjustment, helping to strengthen the framework of the body. Understanding and adjusting the anatomical unity of the human structure to restore proper body mechanics, nerve impulses, and the circulation of body fluids is his goal.
