Cassia Rocha, D.O.


In her practice of Biodynamic Osteopathy, Cassia Rocha D.O found the perfect way to integrate the values and ideas that had driven her previous careers as a biologist and a journalist: empathy with living beings, love of Nature and desire for a better world.
Biodynamic is a rare form of Osteopathy where Science and Art are in perfect integration to create deep access to the body’s innate intelligence using only very gentle, light touch. This is the choice approach to treat across the spectrum of dysfunction and health conditions —from pains and aches to internal organs and emotional problems such as anxiety and depression. As a result, all kinds of patients, from newborn babies to the elderly can benefit from the treatment.
