Cranial osteopathy is a refined and subtle type of osteopathic treatment that encourages the release of stresses and tensions throughout the body, including the head, spine and sacrum.
This system provides a constant stream of life sustaining nutrients to the central nervous system but to do this efficiently there must be movement of the skull bones, the vertebrae in the spine and the sacrum within the pelvis. These movements can easily be restricted and therefore cause many problems within the body.
Cranial osteopathy is a gentle yet extremely effective approach and may be used in a wide range of conditions for people of all ages, from birth to old age. Because of its gentle nature it is an extremely effective treatment for babies and children.
While it can be highly effective at relieving symptoms, cranial osteopathy aims to treat the whole person not just the condition, so a very wide range of situations may benefit from treatment:
- back and neck pain
- joint pain and sports injuries
- headaches, migraines and sinus problems
- recurrent infection
- period pain
- digestive difficulties
- poor general health and well-being
- crying, colic, sleeping and feeding difficulties
- birth trauma
- mis-shaped head and lopsided face
