What is cranial osteopathy?
Cranial Osteopathy is a subtle form of osteopathic treatment that encourages the release of stress and tension throughout the body. Cranial osteopaths are trained to feel the rhythmical change that is present in all body tissue. This is called the cranial rhythm. It is a gentle, yet extremely effective approach which may be used in a wide range of conditions with people of all ages.
How does it work?
Any locking of the cranial joints will affect the flow of cerebral spinal fluid and therefore the health of underlying tissue. This may eventually manifest itself in terms of illness or neurological problems. Through subtle and gentle techniques an osteopath can facilitate the movement between cranial bones, and thereby re-establish normal cranial rhythms, allowing the body to restore itself to normal health.
Who is it suitable for?
Cranial Osteopathy may be helpful for the treatment of infant colic, sleep problems and a broad spectrum of other childhood and adult conditions.
