Cranial Osteopathy is gentle but powerful treatment involving light finger and hand pressure to various parts of the body.
It helps to release compression of cranial bones, tension in the membranes, and to re-balance the natural cranial rhythm. Cranial Osteopathy is suitable for all ages.
Cranial Osteopathy is particularly suitable for babies and children. The physical trauma of birth can cause significant moulding of a baby’s head causing a variety of distortions.
Much of this reduces over several days, however sometimes this unmoulding process in incomplete. This is most often associated with difficult births, but also occurs with ‘normal’ and caesarean deliveries. Babies are unable to express any discomfort caused by birth trauma other than by crying and being unsettled and irritable.
