Osteopaths vary in their treatment methods, depending on their own preference and an individual patient’s problems. A Cranial Osteopath is the name given to an Osteopath who work at the more gentle end of the spectrum. They are trained to feel a very subtle, rhythmical shape change that is present in all the body tissues, which is called the involuntary motion.
Cranial Osteopathy uses very gentle manipulative pressure to encourage the releases of stresses throughout the body including the head. It is extremely effective in treating a wide range of conditions from recent sports injuries to long term joint pain, in people of all ages.. It is very effective in treating children, including new born babies.
