Welcome to my practice.  I am a highly trained Osteopathic Physician, specializing in Osteopathy in the Cranial field. I work with the whole body, including organ motion. I have been in practice 30 plus years and offer  personalized medical care in a very private and spacious environment.


I practice medicine in a way that lets me truly serve the interests of your health and the health of your family, it’s healthcare the way it should be – uncompromising.

I offer an alternative to quantity over quality ‘conveyer belt medicine’, where doctors are allocated an average of 7 to 15 minutes per patient exam.

My treatment sessions are one hour to 30-40- minutes in duration; this allows me to listen to you and gives me the time necessary to understand and manage all aspects of your care.

I have practiced Pediatric Osteopathy for over 25 years and have a special interest in the treatment of the newborn and children, because Osteopathy offers solutions to many childhood problems and the prevention of many problems that are often carried over into adulthood.



Osteopathic treatment is a safe and gentle way to care for most common childhood problems as well as those that are difficult to diagnose and/or difficult to treat. Children of all ages, from newborns to adolescents, respond very well to treatment.


Adult Care

Osteopathy is now recognized as an effective treatment for a wide range of painful disorders. It helps restore the function of the musculoskeletal system (joints, muscles and ligaments). The aim is to relieve pain and get you going again as quickly as possible.



My entire family has seen Dr. Newlon for osteopathic treatment for many years. Her treatment has been a great help with my own chronic back problems. My children and I all notice a real sense of well-being after seeing her for osteopathic manipulative treatment. I think that she provides a type of care that can be an important adjunct to conventional medical treatment.— Michael Harris, M.D., Marin County


Liam had his first treatment with Dr. Barbara at five days old, and her soothing touch was evident immediately. As Liam has grown he has continued having treatments at regular intervals. I credit his uncommon good health to his clear and comfortable body. He always looks forward to his visits with Dr. Barbara. — Hilary Craddock, San Rafael, CA
