What is Cranial Osteopathy?

Cranial Osteopathy OrpingtonCranial Osteopathy is a subtler and more gentle branch of Osteopathy. It works by detecting areas of tension and displacement within the bodily tissues, helping to reposition and restore the health of affected tissues. Cranial treatment is designed to both elevate damage and prevent it from reoccurring.

Cranial Osteopathy can be used on a range of conditions such as sports injuries and even the body’s internal organs. Being an incredibly gentle treatment, Cranial Osteopathy can also be safely performed on patients of all ages and is particularly well known for being successful in treating babies with sleeping problems. Please visit the babies and children tab for more detail on this.

What should I expect from a Cranial Osteopathic treatment?

The Cranial practitioner uses specialized techniques to detect areas of tension, predicting how it is that the tension occurred and manually releasing it. This action restores muscles and tissues back to their proper positioning, retaining the body’s overall balance.

During Cranial treatment, patients may feel pressure or warmth and often a huge sense of relief and relaxation.

After treatment

Cranial Osteopathic treatment is designed to eliminate the patients symptoms and prevent the symptoms from reoccurring. After treatment, patients can expect elevation of their symptoms and will commonly feel significantly more relaxed and energized. Patients may also notice an improved sleeping pattern.

“I think I can say that I have been a patient of yours for a long time and I had dizziness and headaches, and Cranial osteopathy has helped me a lot in overcoming those problems. The same applies to my son Luca, who use to get a migraine that would last 4 or 5 days, the treatment helped him in not getting the migraines, or if he has them, they do not last long.”
