Cranial osteopathy is a refined and subtle treatment using very gentle manipulative pressures to encourage the release of stresses throughout the body, including the head. Cranial osteopathy is extremely effective in treating a wide range of conditions in people of all ages, from birth to old age.
Cranial osteopathy treats imbalances in the cranial system – the membrane and fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.
