What is cranial osteopathy?

Cranial osteopathy is the refined use of touch on the body, primarily the head and pelvis, to diagnose and release tension patterns. I use my hands to help the body to heal itself by gentle pressures. This technique is especially useful in the treatment of babies and children as their bones have junctions between them, they are soft and have 'give'.

Pregnant women and babies under 9 months old especially suit cranial osteopathy as their bodies respond well to the lightest touch.

I recommend Liz Hayden's book, 'Osteopathy for babies and children' and 'Healing through Cranial Osteopathy' by Taj Deeora for those wanting to learn more.
