Cranial Osteopathy is gentle but powerful treatment involving light finger and hand pressure to various parts of the body.
It helps to release compression of cranial bones, tension in the membranes, and to re-balance the natural cranial rhythm. Cranial Osteopathy is suitable for all ages.
It is very gentle, and involves an Osteopath “listening” with their hands to subtle tensions and circulatory flows in the body. It might be considered to be a kind of physical “unwinding”, allowing injuries and strains to soften and relax. Circulation is restored, waste products are removed, and pain is relieved. It is a very natural and safe treatment, epitomising the osteopathic principle “the body produces it’s own medicines” . It can be effective with some difficult conditions where the body seems to “hold on” to trauma. It is used commonly with babies following the birth process etc.
Cranial Osteopathy also addresses the phenomenon of “somatisation” where emotional states have a linked physical state, as the body tries to prepare physically for whatever is making us, for example, sad or angry. Relaxing this physical state can help as the psychological processes. Also, if you feel better physically, you can more easily cope mentally.
