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

We went to see Katherine for our 4 month baby who was very agitated during the nights. Katherine was very thorough in her investigation, explaining in details what she was doing. She was extremely kind and gentle with our baby. The sessions tremendously improved our boy's sleep. Plus she's super friendly so it's always nice as parents to go and see her! We cannot recommend her enough, thanks Katherine!

I’ve been seeing Constantino (Tino) for my treatment, he’s helped me very much. He’s very good & professional at what he does. I previously had a lot of problems with my neck, stiffness and pain, which was affecting my daily life. After a few sessions the pain has gone away. I’m able to do the things I enjoy again. Tino is a very good Osteopath, the best around in my experience.

I had back pain in the latter stages of my pregnancy and Verena used a combination of osteo treatment and suggested exercises to realign my hips and loosen my back in order to alleviate the pain. I was impressed of her knowledge of all things pregnancy related and felt in very safe, capable hands. Highly recommend.

I have been seeing Verena for about a month now and I am very happy with both the service and results, my only regret is i wish i had came to see her sooner!I feel every session is always informative, detailed and the treatment is always in depth. It has really speeded up my sports injury so that i can get back to it.I will be continuing to visit frequently for a general MOT and could not recommend the clinic and Verana enough.

I visited Verena for my back pain, tension, neck pain in my body due to having a new baby who had a feeding and sleeping problem. Her amazing hands released the pain and tension in my body just after 2 sessions, she also recommend some exercise for me to do at home, that exercise really helps my body. Thanks a lot Verena, looking forward to my session tomorrow.

We visited Verena for our 4 month baby sleep problem and tongue tie. After the first session, our baby relaxed a lot and had a great sleep for the next couple of days. Verena’s magical hands have released all the tension from our baby and our baby is much happier when breastfeeding. Looking forward to our 3rd session tomorrow morning. It really changed our life in a better way, thanks a lot, and highly recommended.

Went to see Giulia with a terrible back, shoulder and neck pain. She sorted me out and other long term issues. I’m painless, taller and straighter! Really happy I met her.

Melinda has been amazing! She’s really helped me to recover postpartum and I wish I visited her during my pregnancy. I had quite a few complicated issues due to my pregnancy and she really helped me to feel like myself again. My postpartum recovery wouldn’t have been the same without her. Thank you so much with your magic touch!

Excellent service and very professional. I was in a lot of back pain and Tino fixed it after just the first appointment! He also recommended some great exercises to prevent it happening again - I would highly recommend.
