Cranial osteopathic techniques are safe, gentle and non-manipulative.
They involve the use of subtle pressure (palpation) to slowly release accumulated strains and stresses held within the head and body. The aim of cranial techniques, in releasing these areas, is to restore balance in the body, allowing all systems to work in harmony and increasing overall vitality and well-being. Our patients often report feeling more relaxed and energised following treatment.
Cranial osteopathy, despite its name, is used to treat the whole body and not just the head. Because of its subtle and gentle nature, cranial osteopathy is most commonly known for treating babies although it is also suitable for adult and elderly patients.
