Show Notes

Does your child with special needs struggle with health issues, attention challenges, etc.? Could osteopathy be a safe and powerful alternative?

There are options special families...and there is hope! Learn about osteopathy for kids from our special guest, Dr. Roeshan Shadravan, OMP (Pacific Integrative Pediatric Health).

Roeshan Shadravan, OMP PhD
“I truly do believe that by design we are resilient, self-healing beings. We just sometimes simply need a little guidance back onto the path of innate healing. Manual osteopathic practices do just that, resolving the micro-traumas to allow the body to rediscover its natural freedom to move without pain while restoring proper function and joy in your body and life.”

I have devoted the past 20 years to continue enriching my practice. I approach the body from a traditional osteopathic non-invasive hands-on perspective.  I have been studying and traveling globally to train and mentor world-renowned osteopaths, movement and manual medicine specialists, fascia researchers, and naturopaths.  We will work together to restore balance and improve your overall quality of life by using a full spectrum of osteopathic techniques to address the root cause of disharmony within the body, brain, and nervous system. We can work to improve posture, pain, performance, cognitive function and development, digestion, and sleep.

In a nutshell, I am an integrative osteopathic manual medicine practitioner. I hold a doctorate in osteopathy and naprapathic medicine, a Ph.D. in Osteopathic Clinical Studies, and an MSc in athletic therapy. I look forward to meeting and working with you and your families!
