Cranial Osteopathy (or as it is sometimes called "Craniosacral Osteopathy") is a refined and subtle type of osteopathic treatment that uses very gentle manipulative pressure to encourage the release of stresses throughout the body, including the head. It is a system of osteopathic medicine which uses the patient's "Cranial Rhythm" (also known as the " Primary Respiratory or Involuntary Mechanism") for evaluation and treatment.
It is a very gentle, non invasive treatment that is great for all age groups. It involves the gentle release of the skull bones as well as the spine, extremities and soft tissues of the whole body. It's aim is to facilitate fluid flow in the body. It utilizes a highly trained sense of touch to alleviate disturbances and limitations to subtle movements within the body.
It is extremely effective in treating a wide range of conditions in people of all ages, from birth to old age.
What does Treatment Involve?
An osteopath takes a detailed medical history from the patient followed by a careful examination. He/she will make a diagnosis of what is causing the symptoms, and try to put together the 'story' of why they have developed.
The aim is to relieve the current symptoms and also improve the underlying health of the tissues as far as possible in order that they do not reoccur.
This type of treatment is suitable for anyone from newborn babies to the very elderly, being extremely gentle.
