Cranial Osteopathy

The majority of us have been exposed to physical trauma or stresses throughout our life. The body is usually capable of dealing with these strains, however sometimes they can accumulate and this may lead to pain and dysfunction.

Cranial osteopaths are trained to feel subtle disturbances and rhythmic motions present in all body tissues. Osteopaths refer to this as the involuntary mechanism.

Cranial osteopathy is a gentle and subtle form of osteopathic treatment that uses soft manipulative pressure to encourage the release of stresses throughout the body, especially the head and sacrum. Some patients find it extremely effective for their condition, it can be applied to treat a wide range of conditions in people of all ages and is a common form of treatment used for babies and children.

Cranial osteopathy can be applied to a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Traumatic birth process and long labour
  • Headache and migraine
  • Period pain
  • Sinusitis
  • Stress, fatigue and depression
  • Sleepless infants
  • Poor concentration
  • Pre and post-natal women
  • Reflux
  • Symptoms of colic

Cranial osteopathy is extremely well suited to individuals who prefer a more gentle approach in regards to their treatment
