Dr. Newlon

“The greatest joy in my work is treating babies and children. They are gifts that remind us of our true nature. Treatment with cranial sacral osteopathy, and when needed, homeopathy, is one of the greatest gifts you can give your child.”

Dr. Barbara Newlon received her Osteopathic Doctorate in 1981 from the Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in Kirksville, Missouri, and has been treating children in Marin County since 1985. She has completed more than 1,000 hours of postgraduate training through the Cranial Academy, an affiliate of the American Osteopathic Association. Dr. Newlon has taught the cranial concept since 1982 at the Osteopathic College in Pomona, California, and at Barbara Newlon 4-13 copyTouro College of Osteopathic Medicine in Vallejo, California. She has served on the Board of the Osteopathic Center for Children in San Diego, California.

These include Anne Wales D.O., Edna Lay D.O., Paul Kimberly D.O., Robert Fulford D.O. (who is discussed in Andrew Weil M.D.’s best-selling book, Spontaneous Healing), and Viola Frymann D.O.
