Cranial Osteopathy

Cranial osteopathy is a gentle form of osteopathic treatment which allows the practitioner to subtly assess the quality of tissues and any tension held with in the body’s structure. Cranial osteopathic treatment isn’t only treatment of the head but the whole body.

In treatment the osteopath is guided by intrinsic forces of tissues and treatment helps to support unwinding and balancing of the structures. A principle of osteopathy is that the body heals itself and this is supported by treatment.

Cranial osteopathy is more of a passive treatment, and some people cant feel anything happening at the time of treatment, others feel tension releasing or sensations around the body as the body finds harmony. Many patients report feeling relaxed or tired after treatment.

Many believe that cranial osteopathy is only for babies and children due to the subtle approach. Cranial osteopathy is an effective way of treating young children, but this method is suitable for patients of all ages with a variety of presentations.
