Cranial Osteopathy for Adults


Osteopathy is most well known for the successful treatment of back pain and Cranial Osteopathy is well known as an effective support for adults who respond better to subtler, gentler and sensitive techniques that are extraordinarily powerful.

Cranial Osteopathy supports the natural healing processes of many difficult cases too, often including those where you may be expected to simply ‘live with’ your condition or when you surgery has been recommended.

Cranial Osteopathy is a very gentle and non-invasive manual technique that works to make sure that the body’s framework is in alignment, allowing a good blood and nerve supply to internal organs, and relieving any tension in the muscles and bones that could be restricting these.

Cranial Osteopathy aims to treat the person holistically, i.e. not just the physical condition. It is helpful to people of all ages and has been successful in treating diverse conditions such as acute back and neck pain, migraines and sinus problems. Indeed treatment may also benefit general health and well-being.

When we experience physical or emotional stresses our body tissues tend to tighten up. Any tensions in the body can restrict a person’s freedom of movement and disrupt cranial rhythm. Gradually the body may find it more and more difficult to cope with the accumulated stresses and symptoms may develop.

During treatment some Patients may experience sensations of warmth or fluid movement whereas others may simply experience deep relaxation.
