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.

Katherine was great! I had repetitive injuries in my back from sport and after 3 sessions she gave me the tools to prevent these injuries from happening again. Highly recommend.

I took my baby to see Katherine to help with sleeping issues. She immediately noted areas of tightness causing him pain and after one session he was sleeping through the night. After four sessions he was a different baby, sleeping and eating batter leading to a much happier baby. I wish I had taken him earlier!

Andrew Cotton is such professional, experienced, gifted, caring and talented Osteopath. I am so lucky to have found him to resolve a neck issue which was giving me the most horrendous pain in my shoulder and migraines. I was in agony when I first arrived and a few sessions later, I am now pain free, have a much greater range of movement and able to turn my neck again! Such a brilliant result! Thank you Andrew for your talent.

We’ve had a really great experience with the treatment Melinda has given to our little boy with torticollis. She’s a very kind and professional individual and obviously good at what she does.

I first discovered Fulham Osteopaths as a sleep-deprived first time Mum - I did not know what osteopathy was before then! I am so grateful to have Fulham Osteopaths as part of my community - Melinda is so lovely (as are her staff!) and the practice exemplifies holistic care that is critically missing in many parts of our health system. Now my whole family receives care from the practice and every time, no matter the niggle (or emergency!) we receive excellent care throughout. Many thanks!!
