If your body is injured it will always try to heal in the best way that is possible at that time.
Sometimes the healing process is not able to fully return the tissues to normal and they may be left with a strain or scar tissue.
Cranial Osteopathy relies on utilising your body’s own healing forces. It can be applied to any tissue in the body – not just the head.
It is used for joint and muscle strains, organ dysfunctions such as uterine pain or connective tissue problems such as scar tissue. Cranial Osteopathy may also be useful where the person is stressed from physical or emotional causes and may help to restore normal function in the nervous and hormonal systems.
By using highly developed palpation skills the osteopath feels how the body is trying to correct the problem and then may be able to assist by helping the bodies own healing processes. This is done by applying very gentle but specific pressure to the parts of the body that feel disturbed. The body may then be able to return to a more normal health state.
