Functional & Cranial osteopathy

Cranial osteopathy is a complicated art that looks into the body’s rhythm with precision and then is treated by removing the strain patterns that affect the injury through the body. This type of malady can be developed from birth in a traumatic birthing; or it can also be from a past injury that has not healed properly.

One effective treatment that is used on expectant mothers is a gentle soothing technique which allows relief to the mother while her body is undergoing changes all while ensuring no harm to the unborn child. This type of treatment does not use any types of medications, and is suitable for patients of all ages. It can also be effective in treating coccyx injuries, headaches, and back pain.

Cranial treatment is very subtle and gentle and so is suitable for all patients whether newborn, pregnant or elderly. Osteopaths are trained to understand the complexity involved by feeling and interpreting the very small details of the bones in the skull and other body limbs. The ‘cranial rhythm’ or ‘involuntary motion’ repeats itself about every 10 seconds and is present throughout the body.
