Cranial Osteopathy is a subtle form of osteopathic treatment that uses very gentle pressure to encourage the release of stresses throughout the body. It is called ‘cranial’ because treatment often involves the head, although other parts of the body such as the spine and tailbone can also be involved.
A cranial osteopath can feel the very small fluctuations of movement within the body called involuntary motion. To the osteopath, this feels like a gentle expansion and contraction of all the tissues, occurring 7 – 14 times a minute.
Cranial Osteopathy is suitable for all ages and many conditions including ADHD, autism and emotional difficulties. Students are offered individual treatments every 2 weeks.
