What Is Cranial Osteopathy

You may have been recommended Cranial Osteopathy, Baby Cranial or Cranio-Sacral Therapy, these are all the same thing, but a Cranial Osteopath is the most highly skilled practitioner of it, it is a gentle form of hands-on treatment which many Osteopaths employ as part of their treatment. It is very gentle, and involves an Osteopath 'listening' with their hands to subtle tensions and circulatory flows in the body. It might be considered to be a kind of physical 'unwinding', allowing injuries and strains to soften and relax. Circulation is restored, toxins are removed, and pain is relieved. It is a very natural and safe treatment, epitomising the Osteopathic principle 'the body produces it's own medicines'. It can be verging on miraculously effective with some difficult conditions where the body seems to 'hold on' to trauma. So what is Cranial Osteopathy good for?

Cranial Osteopathy For Babies

Baby Cranial is used commonly to relax babies following the birth process, and may help with many complaints. Because a baby cannot talk about the symptoms, a physical listening approach is very helpful when a baby is unsettled, crying, has trouble feeding etc. The treatment is very gentle and parents can be reassured Cranial Osteopathy for Babies is safe and effective. You may have been recommended by your Paediatrician or Doula. We work together with your team cooperatively.

Cranial Osteopathy for Headaches

Cranial Osteopathy is the only treatment that addresses stresses and strains in the bones and membranes of the skull, head and brain. Very delicate, a Cranial Osteopath with very fine sensitivity can feel for tensions and strains and relax them away.

Mind - Body Connection

Cranial Osteopathy also addresses the phenomenon of "somatisation" where emotional states have a linked physical state, as the body tries to prepare physically for whatever is making us, for example, sad or angry. Relaxing this physical state can help the psychological to process. Sometimes stuck feelings just melt away... Also, if you feel better physically, you can more easily cope mentally. The best bit is that Cranial Osteopathy works on your whole body. Once one part relaxes, the whole does too.

This means you can be well in a truly natural way, by in the end the miracle of your body healing itself.

And here's the best bit... By fixing the root cause of your problems, frequently people find that related issues that are connected also show drastic improvement, so you get help with all sorts of issues you didn’t even realise were connected.

From clients benefiting from a better quality life

Melinda is the best you can get!! I went to see her after my scan showed my baby in breach position. Melinda put me at ease and the adjustments she made were totally pain free and relieved tightness in my back. Within 36 hours my baby turned… totally amazing. This may not work for everyone, but it’s worth a go … especially over the likely stress and pain that comes with the ECV hospital treatments.

I cannot speak highly enough of the service here. I came on the advice of a freind with a suspected frozen shoulder, which at the time was astonishingly painful. It turns out that it was likely a partially dislocated shoulder, and thanks to the brilliant analysis and help of Omer it is now on the mend. The help and advice was spot on, and I'll make a habit of coming with any muscular problem in the future.Put simply, if you have a problem this is the place to go. It is absolutely amazing.

My 8 month old daughter had treatment with Giulia at Fulham osteopath as she wasn’t meeting some milestones and we were a little concerned. Giulia was very welcoming and reassuring right from the beginning.When my daughter had her first treatment with Giulia, the next day she was able to meet that milestone as if nothing had happened, we were amazed at how quickly the treatment worked and we were really pleased to see that.Giulia recommended to have two more treatments for her and with those treatments things just got better for her in regards to meeting her milestones.We highly recommend Giulia for anyone who might be facing the same concerns for their little ones.

I have been treated by Verena Leo at Fulham Osteopaths in the last few months for a hip imbalance which causes complications such as trochanteric tendonitis and bursitis. But of course she looks at the skeleton as a whole. She has a very informed and gentle approach, which I like. She never rushes things, explains well and gives exercises to help further at home. I am pleased and have brought my teenage daughter, who has posture issues, to be treated by her too. Definitely recommended.

I have been intermittently using Fulham Osteopaths over the years and always had a really positive experience. Recently, Omer has been incredibly helpful, I went in due to an aching shoulder that had been bothering me for a couple of months, and not only has he really helped with that, but my recent sessions have made my whole back feel looser. I can feel the difference day to day and appreciate it enormously.
