Cranial Osteopathy


Cranial Osteopathy is one of the many tools used by osteopaths. It is safe for babies, young children and the elderly because of its very light nature.

To the observer, treatment appears to be merely the placing of hands gently on different parts of the body, especially the skull. Patients often comment that they feel a local warmth and a deep release of tension.

We realise that children and toddlers may be anxious and we will treat them in the way they find most relaxing – whether on the treatment table, on a parent’s lap or looking out of the window counting lorries.

In all cases, if we do not feel the problem is suitable for osteopathic treatment we will tell you.
