Cranial Osteopathy

Cranial osteopathy is a refined and subtle approach to osteopathic treatment that uses very gentle though highly effective manipulative pressure to encourage the release of stresses throughout the body, including the head.

The osteopath uses their highly trained sense of touch, to identify and correct mechanical disturbances and limitations, both in and around the joints in the skull and throughout the body.

The non-invasive and gentle nature of cranial osteopathy makes it suitable for a wide range of conditions in people of all ages, especially babies, children and older people.

Osteopathy for babies and children

Birth is one of the most stressful events of our life. The baby’s head has the remarkable ability to absorb these stresses in a ‘normal’ delivery . Some babies retain moulding from birth in their head and areas of stress throughout their body. This may lead to: feeding difficulties, sickness, crying, and sleep disturbances
