Advanced Course Topic: Cranial Approach of Beryl E. Arbuckle, D.O.
Presented by Dr. Marianne Herr-Paul, D.O.
Marianne Herr-Paul, D.O. was born into an osteopathic family physician.
Her father, Paul W. Herr, D.O., studied at the Philadelphia School under the tutelage of Beryl E. Arbuckle, D.O.. He carried her teachings forward in his office on a daily basis.
When she was a child she was treated by Dr. Arbuckle (although she was too young to remember it). As an adolescent, she helped her father in the office when he was treating spastic children. It took until her early 30’s to realize she wanted to study Osteopathy. She grraduated from the West Virginia school in 1990. While she always appreciated her father’s hands (he treated his children whenever needed throughout the years), she was drawn to the approaches of Thomas Shaver, D.O. at the West Virginia School, and later, to James Jealous, D.O.. Considering herself a perennially late bloomer, it wasn’t until the last 5-6 years that she finally immersed herself in the teachings of Dr. Arbuckle. With her father’s help, she worked through the “Green Book”, and at last came to a rudimentary understanding of the depth and artistry of this magnificent Osteopath.
In her osteopathic career, she has had a full-spectrum of family practice; including hospital work and obstetrics. Followed by 19 years of functional medicine and OMM in private practice--incorporating Dr. Arbuckle’s approach into her mostly biodynamic paradigm has brought her much joy.
