Cranial Osteopathy Info
Cranial osteopathy is the not different to osteopathy, it is the name given to a subtle and refined approach to osteopathy that follows all the principles of osteopathy, and it is used throughout the body not just in the head. The name cranial osteopathy simply refers to the fact that it includes the structures inside the head.
What Is Cranial Osteopathy?
Cranial Osteopathy is a very gentle treatment suitable for children and newborn infants.
Cranial techniques are safe, gentle and non-manipulative that could help soothe and relax your baby.
The possibility of the “cranio-sacral” mechanism was first postulated by A.T.Still, the founder of Osteopathy, in America towards the second half of the nineteenth century.
It has always been a major part of the conceptual basis of osteopathy that the body functions as a whole, and that all states of health, are mirrored by the rest of the body. In this, osteopathy falls within the holistic paradigm of health, a way of looking at health, which is rapidly regaining a foothold within the scientific world. Although osteopathy does not claim to cure illnesses, it may help in trying to alleviate a range of health problems.
As children get older they can often be helped by a combination of cranial and structural osteopathic approaches.
