Cranial Osteopathy

Cranial Osteopathy is a subtle and gentle type of osteopathic treatment which can help to relieve tension and everyday stress patterns that have built up throughout the body.

The treatment itself involves the delicate manipulation of the cranial and spinal bones in order to restore the cranial rhythm. In the treatment of adults, while the practitioner holds the appropriate bones and gently manipulates tissues, the patient is asked to concentrate on releasing tension and breathing.


Who is treated with Cranial Osteopathy?

Cranial Osteopathy is an effective approach that may be used in people of all ages. Babies are often treated after birth (click here to view my blog article about treating babies with cranial osteopathy and this article discusses the treatment of babies with colic). Cranial osteopathy is a gentle treatment that may help to ease the dramatic change from life inside the womb to life in the world outside. Adults may also benefit from cranial osteopathy.
