What is Cranial Osteopathy

Cranial Osteopathy is a more subtle, gentle form of Osteopathy that encourages the release of stresses throughout the body. Although the name suggests we only work on the head, it is possible to treat in a a cranial style from any part of the body using the vast network of fascial connections.

Many of the body’s systems work in what is called an “Involuntary” fashion.  So, you don’t have to control the beating of your heart or continuing to breathe while you sleep for instance. This underlying motion can easily be upset by various forms of external factors. From a difficult birth, to falls, accidents, serious illness, the body has a good memory for these things and often issues that were not resolved years ago can cause problems much later.
