Cranial osteopathy

Cranial osteopathy is a very gentle and effective form of treatment which uses very subtle manipulative pressure to encourage the release of stresses throughout the body, including the head. It is particularly helpful in allowing the body to recover or "settle" following any injury or trauma, including birth trauma for both mother and baby.

This form of osteopathy is suitable for all ages, and as it is so gentle, it is particularly appropriate for children and babies straight from birth.

"The practice is welcoming and friendly and the treatment has improved my son's temperament and well being"
