Cranial Osteopathy


Cranial Osteopaths are trained to feel a very subtle rhythmic movement that is present throughout the body. This is known as the Cranial Rhythm or involuntary motion. The skull is made up of 26 bones which are intricately joined in such a way that during the rhythmical cycle of involuntary motion, the skull actually changes shape to accommodate the movement of fluids inside the head. Impacts or pressures on the head can disrupt or block this flow of movement. This can lead to very wide variety of problems in the head and throughout the body.


By feeling the involuntary motion throughout the body an osteopath can feel whether a person is in optimum health or whether there is something preventing the free, healthy movement of tissues.


Treatment is very gentle and often people feel nothing at all. Other people may feel sensations of pressure or warmth while others just become increasingly relaxed or sleepy.
