Cranial Osteopathy is a well established treatment that uses very subtle techniques to address the strain patterns that build up in the body overtime. It has become well know amongst people that do not respond well to the more direct techniques of Osteopathy; those that are particularly reactive or struggle to find the energy to respond to direct techniques. It has become widely known for the treatment of new born babies and children that may suffer from the compressive forces of the womb or birth itself.
Although Cranial Osteopaths pay particular attention to patterns that exist within the cranial structures, their techniques apply to the whole body. When they unwind the compressive forces at the top of the head and neck this changes postural relationships across the whole spine as well as freeing important nerves that can impact feeding, digestion and sleeping.
