What does cranial treatment feel like? Patients may feel sensations of pressure or warmth, either under the Osteopaths hand or elsewhere. Most patients feel that gradually the tension is being drawn out of their body and they become deeply relaxed.

What is Cranial Osteopathy?

Cranial Osteopathy is a refined and subtle type of osteopathic treatment. Specific gentle pressure is applied where necessary, to enable the inherent healing ability of the body to effect the release of stresses. It is extremely effective in treating a wide range of conditions in people of all ages, from birth to old age.

Cranial Osteopathy aims to relieve the current symptoms and improve the underlying heath of the tissues to prevent recurrence. Patients often report an improvement in general well being, energy levels, sleep patterns and an improvement of symptoms other than their initial complaints.
