Can Cranial Osteopathy Help You?
Why is it different from classical osteopathic manipulation?
Cranial Osteopathy is a very gentle and relaxing treatment aspect of osteopathy which can be applied to the whole body not just the head. It is a very effective approach and is successfully used for conditions of all age groups - babies, children, adults and the elderly.
Osteopathic techniques vary from extremely gentle, to osteopathic thrust techniques (famed for producing 'the click'). Cranial osteopathy lies at the extremely gentle end of the scale. It is quite common for patients to feel so calm and relaxed that they fall asleep during a treatment session. Because of the very subtle nature of this approach, it enables the practitioner to gain information about your physiology which would be very difficult by other means. This enables a more profound understanding / diagnosis of your condition to be made, and giving you greater holistic benefit from the treatment.
