What is Cranial Osteopathy Used For?

Reducing stress and pain and  promoting well-being. Cranial Osteopathy can help with a wide range of conditions including migraines, cranial osteopathy for TMJ and cranial osteopathy for back pain for which other osteopathic techniques may not be suitable. After experiencing physical or emotional stress it is common for our body tissues to tighten up. Although our bodies are generally able to adapt to stress at the time, prolonged stresses or strain can remain. This remaining tension can accumulate and be held in the body which can restrict its free movement and then symptoms develop. The Cranial Osteopath works with your body to activate the innate ability of the body to heal itself with cranial manipulations to remove restrictions and provide support to bring the tissues back into a state of balance. Cranial osteopathy is a treatment which is suitable for infants, adults and the elderly. At Wellthy Clinic we offer Cranial Osteopathy for adults.

What is Cranial Osteopathy for Adults?


A deeply relaxing experience which can bring great benefits. Although overall mobility in the limbs, spine and head (cranium) starts to reduce in adulthood there are still gaps between the cranial bones (sutures) that Cranial Osteopaths believe they can influence balance tensions. For example, following a head injury, it is common to experience headaches so cranial treatment can be of great benefit. During treatment, some clients are aware of different sensations, such as mild tensions, aching or sensitivity that gradually disappear, or of feelings of warmth and relaxation. Other people are not aware of anything happening during the treatment but do feel differently following treatment. The majority feel deeply relaxed during treatment and it is not uncommon for people to fall asleep. More on our Cranial Osteopathy London.

What to Expect After Seeing a Cranial Osteopath?

The Cranial Osteopath will try to give some idea of how many treatments are necessary depending on your presentation. This will be reviewed for each treatment depending on your progress as part of your treatment plan.
