Cranial Osteopathy & Craniosacral Therapy


Cranial osteopathy/craniosacral therapy is a gentle way of working with the body using a light touch. It supports the body’s innate ability to balance and restore as well as helping to reduce stress and build underlying energy. It is suitable for all ages from newly born babies to the elderly.

Treatment from a Cranial Osteopath may be suitable for a range of patients with a variety of conditions. Although the term Cranial Osteopathy implies treatment exclusively on the head and the sacrum, this gentle precise and rhythmic approach to Osteopathy can be applied elsewhere in the body. Read below to see if it could be suitable for you.

Cranial Osteopathy is the art of listening to what’s known as the” involuntary motion” or “cranial rhythm”- a subtle fluid, shape change found in all body tissues. An Osteopath uses their highly developed sense of palpation to detect stress and strain patterns within the cranial rhythm. These patterns can be a result of an injury or a trauma. The key principle during treatment is to listen to the involuntary motion and allow the patient’s body to make the changes required from within, without the Osteopath enforcing an external remedy for treatment.

The gentle nature of cranial osteopathic treatment means that patients ranging from young babies, to expectant mothers, to the elderly may all benefit from it.

COVID-19 We are open

Please let us know and stay at home if you are suffering the symptoms of Covid-19 or are living with someone who is self-isolating and we will find an appointment when you are able to come.

To visit the practice we ask you to be totally free of fever, cough, altered sense of taste or smell, or breathing difficulties (unless the later are part of a chronic preexisting condition).

Equally we would ask you not to attend if you are self isolating due to Covid-19 symptoms affecting you or members of your household.

Although we are taking all measures possible, they can only minimize the risk of infection rather than eliminate it.

We hope that you are all well and look forward to seeing you.
