Chris Harris

CHRIS HARRIS, BA hons DO, graduated as an Osteopath from the European School of Osteopathy in 1994 having found his vocation.

As an undergraduate he particularly enjoyed the field of Cranial Osteopathy. This is a refined and subtle form of the work which hugely broadens the range of conditions that can be safely and effectively treated. Chris quickly realised that this was an area in which to specialise.

This he has done by substantial postgraduate study with the Sutherland Cranial College [the foremost training institute in this field] having completed all their specialist courses, and by apprenticeship. He has worked closely with and learned from several senior figures in the profession of world renown. This has helped him in the synthesis of his own unique approach.

He treats a large number of infants and children where early intervention to release stresses and strains from the birthing process in particular can avoid a lifetime of problems. He describes constantly attempting to extend the depth and reach of Osteopathic treatment. Cranial Osteopathy is well known for being able to initiate healthy changes even when there have been decades of suboptimal functioning as a consequence of a birth strain or other physical or emotional trauma. Much of his personal satisfaction comes from facilitating patients as they release these patterns and thus enable themselves to initiate profoundly positive life changes.

He also specialises in the new field of Osteodontics.  This is the interface between dental/orthodontic intervention and Cranial Osteopathy.  Alongside work with infants treatment here is at its most powerful in terms of long term benefits accrued from the minimum of intervention, which concurs with the philosophy of work that Chris espouses.

Patients have often described Chris as having an infectious enthusiasm for his work which they find reassuring and encouraging. Chris is always happy to answer questions about any aspect of treatment. Further information is available on his website.
