Cranial Osteopathy Services

What’s Cranial all about?
Cranial Osteopathy is a gentler approach to conventional Osteopathy. It is the name given to a subtle and refined technique that follows all the principles of Osteopathy, but that includes the anatomy and physiology of the head. It is often (but not exclusively) used for the treatment of babies and children. 

How does it work?
Diagnosis and treatment are intimately linked. Your Osteopath works to activate the innate ability of the body to heal itself, and by offering gentle and specific support where it is needed to bring the tissues into a state of balance and release, to restore it to health. The Osteopath will listen to the body’s inner knowledge of what is wrong, which may be different to your own opinion. But that’s normal. This helps us to understand and treat the cause of the symptoms, to reduce the chance of symptoms returning in the future.

Paediatric Osteopaths look beyond conditions and take a holistic approach to the patient, using manual techniques to restore, maintain and support health and wellbeing. Using a highly trained sense of touch, we feel subtle changes of tension and tissue quality in the living anatomy of the whole body. We can then diagnose areas of strain or dysfunction. Paediatric Osteopaths draw on the relevant approaches that are gentle enough for babies and children, providing treatment that’s as individual as the patient themselves. In young patients, the methods used are nearly always very gentle, but nonetheless powerful and affective. We aim to aid promotion of blood flow throughout the body and restore health.

Paediatric Osteopathy is also helpful for growing children suffering from:

Muscle strains



Growing pains

Issues with posture


Also, if a child has had a difficult birth and is struggling with issues such as:




Generally unsettled

Our expert team can help to calf down any overstimulation in your child and support normal function and health. 

Is it just for kids? 
When treating adults, Cranial Osteopaths are often drawn to areas in the body that have been affected by past events, such as old accidents and injuries. The body may have learned to compensate for a traumatic event or injury and the patient may be unaware that there is anything wrong, but the effects may still be present and relevant to current symptoms. The same techniques are applied as when treating children and can be just as affective. This is a popular choice for pre and post-natal women, who may feel more comfortable with this incredibly gentle treatment.
