Cranial osteopathy is a very gentle, yet powerful, part of osteopathy. While standard osteopathy is generally known for its high velocity cracks and crunches, cranial osteopathy is so gentle you would barely know you were having it. As the name suggests it involves manipulating the infinitesimal joints of the cranium or skull, known as sutures. Although these sutures are so very tiny, they can become as traumatised or restricted as any joint in the body. The cranial osteopath seeks to ease any abnormalities, gently returning the bones of the cranium to a position of ease and comfort.


A detailed case history is taken with every new patient regarding current symptoms and medical history. This is followed by examining various movements of the body, both actively and passively. The diagnosis is explained to the patient and consent is taken for treatment.
Treatment involves very light touch being applied to various parts of the body. Sometimes the patient can experience waves as the body releases and other times nothing is felt until days after the treatment.

Many women suffer from pubic symphysis dysfunction (PSD) in their last trimester again due to excess weight and softening of pelvic ligaments leaving the low back and pelvis vulnerable to strain.

Heart burn and indigestion due to the compression of the stomach and intestines against the ever developing uterus are also common problems.
Back, leg, upper back and neck pain are very common during pregnancy due to the shear weight of the baby placed upon the body.
