Cranial treatment.

Cranial treatment.

Cranial treatment is just another method of treatment that can be used in osteopathy.But specialist training is needed,and some practitioners have done more courses to become proficient in this technique.It takes advantage of the fact that the skull is made up of bones that articulate with each other and like the rest of the body, the precise position and mobility of these is crucial.The mechanism for treatment is  poorly understood but appears to use the energy that helps move cerebral fluid about the whole nervous system and this is very subtle and thus very gentle. This makes it ideally suited to babies,as their skull has not yet fused and they have many problems derived from the birth process and relating to development.However cranial can be used on any patient, with most conditions and is ideal for patients who do not want manipulation or robust techniques.

If you want specific cranial treatment do ask when booking treatment as not all the practitioners use these techniques.We also can recommend you to someone who specialises in just treating babies and development issues.
