Cranial Osteopathy

This is a very gentle approach using “involuntary motion” of the body. We feel a rhythmical expansion and contraction of all the body tissues, using subtle techniques to release accumulated stresses and strains.

Impacts to the head can block and disrupt this movement. This can cause a wide variety of problems both in the head and elsewhere in the body.

Using involuntary motion in the tissues we can feel whether a person is working in the best way and are in an optimum way of health.

Stresses and strains accumulate in the body over time (both physical and emotional). Although the body adapts to a certain amount eventually it finds it more difficult to cope, beginning to show as a variety of symptoms.

Benefits of Treatment

Treatment is aimed not only at the relief of symptoms, but towards helping the body function better in all respects.

There is often improvement in general well being, energy levels, sleep patterns and in areas where symptoms other than those reported in the first place.
