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.

I’ve seen several osteopaths at Fulham Osteopaths over the past 3 years. All have been excellent and assisted with pain in pregnancy, migraines and back/neck tension . Staff is also friendly and helpful. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this practice!

My experience with Giulia is incredibly positive. I have suffered from chronic back pain and coccydinia for over two years and have seen many different specialists during that time. Since I started working with Giulia I have seen by far the strongest improvement in my conditions. Our weekly craniosacral therapy appointments have definitely reduced the pain in my back and clearly improved my overall posture. I am really happy with the progress and will continue to see her in the future. I could not recommend her enough.

Amazing experience when we brought our newborn son. Katie was super knowledgeable and made us feel as ease straight away. She helped ease any concerns and the osteopath treatment was brilliant. We couldn’t recommend her highly enough for baby and parent.

We have been seeing Melinda with our little one since he was 3 weeks. After the first session, I noticed a significant improvement in his latch and posture. We have really appreciated the small exercises suggested which we can leverage to keep improving. Also, the little videos are a really kind extra thought, and helps us remember things we may have forgotten after the session (especially with the lack of sleep). Melinda has been a wealth of knowledge at every session, and our little one is so calm in her presence.
