What is it? Cranial osteopathy is a very gentle form of osteopathic treatment. By gently releasing tension and stress throughout the body it is possible to treat a variety of conditions. As a cranial osteopath I have done post graduate training to become proficient in this method of treatment. You learn to feel a very subtle, rhythmical shape change that is present in all body tissues. Tension in the body will disrupt this rhythm and the treatment attempts to correct and release this tension.
When do I use Cranial osteopathy?
Adults: when treating adults I often use a mixture of traditional and cranial osteopathy as I find that they work well together.
Babies: cranial osteopathy is often used to treat babies because it is a gentle and safe form of treatment. The stress and strain of emerging into the world can have a profound impact on the body. Cranial osteopathy can help to release this tension and restore normal function. If you would like to know if your baby would benefit from treatment please contact me.
