Everything you need to know about cranial osteopathy – Witham

Cranial osteopathy is a very gentle form of osteopathy, which uses delicate and non-invasive pressure on the head. It is highly effective in treating a wide variety of conditions in people of all ages, especially babies and children due to the calming techniques used.

The principle behind cranial osteopathy is to encourage the body to make its own changes from within and not rely on a drug prescription. In order for treatment to work, the osteopath must develop a highly acute sense of palpation to understand what the body requires.

During treatment, the osteopath might appear to be very still and not move their hands at all. In fact, some patients are complete unaware the treatment is taking place and may even fall asleep. But this simply means it is working – relaxing the body and encouraging self-healing.
