Cranial osteopathy is a refined and subtle type of osteopathic treatment. The therapist uses gentle techniques to release stresses throughout the body.
This form of treatment may be beneficial for people of all ages and is particularly suitable for children and infants. The stresses on the body occurring during the process of childbirth may present themselves as tensions, which may restrict free movement within the body.
In adults, cranial osteopathy can help to release tensions which may arise with emotional and physical stress.
Cranial osteopathy may be used as part of any osteopathic treatment or may be given as a full treatment session.
