Cranial Osteopathy

Cranial Osteopathy at The Abbots Langley Clinic

Cranial Osteopathy is a very gentle treatment suitable for children and newborn infants.

Cranial techniques are safe, gentle and non-manipulative that could help soothe and relax your baby.

The possibility of the “cranio-sacral” mechanism was first postulated by A.T.Still, the founder of Osteopathy, in America towards the second half of the nineteenth century.

It has always been a major part of the conceptual basis of osteopathy that the body functions as a whole, and that all states of health, are mirrored by the rest of the body. In this, osteopathy falls within the holistic paradigm of health, a way of looking at health, which is rapidly regaining a foothold within the scientific world. Although osteopathy does not claim to cure illnesses, it may help in trying to alleviate a range of health problems.

As children get older they can often be helped by a combination of cranial and structural osteopathic approaches.
