Cranial Osteopathy

Cranial Osteopathy uses the gentlest level of touch of all the Osteopathic techniques.  But it is highly effective, uses the same principles of all the other osteopathic techniques and is popular with patients.  It is a type of technique, not a different form of Osteopathy.

It works with the body’s natural movement to release restrictions and improve circulation.  It can be used as a single treatment approach or in combination with other osteopathic techniques.

It is a treatment of choice for many patients because it is gentle, enjoyable to receive and most importantly they feel better.

Some people have heard of Cranio-Sacral technique, this came from Cranial Osteopathy and the treatment is very similar.  The difference is with an Osteopath you have a much higher degree level of initial training.

Treating Babies and Children

Cranial Osteopathy is a gentle and non-manipulative treatment suitable for babies and children, from birth.  It can help sooth and relax them and release strains.  I have been treating babies and children since graduation and have studied paediatrics both at undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Babies usually improve over 3-4 treatments.  (If they are fundamentally well)

“I took my 8 week old daughter to Louise for cranial osteopathy… I would recommend cranial osteopathy to anyone… It was a bonus that Louise is incredibly supportive and has a lovely calming nature, something I certainly appreciated as a worried new mum.”
