Osteo (bone) Pathy (sympathy) is a system of healthcare emphasizing the need for a healthy structure in the proper maintenance of your wellbeing

The primary focus of osteopathy is facilitating the free flow of information through the nerves connecting the brain & spinal cord with your vital organs to maintain optimal health


Cranial osteopathy deals with a rhythmic wave-like motion originally found in the cranium, but in fact a feature of the whole body. Considered a vital expression of health, cranial osteopaths interact with this breath of life to guide your whole system to healthy balance

José Manuel Ponce is a cranial oriented osteopath working hands-on and at a distance to free your inherent health potential 


Meaning union, yoga is a mind-body practice for bringing harmony, health and happiness into your life
