Cranial Osteopathy Surrey

Since the mid-1800s, Osteopathy has been a popular form of physical therapy to improve health across all bodily systems by strengthening the musculoskeletal structure. It has also been recognised by the WHO (World Health Organisation) as a traditional method of medicinal treatment.

Cranial Osteopathy is a gentle and subtler branch of Osteopathy that focuses specifically on the head, spine and other parts in relation to the head. However, it is not limited to treating the cranial region only.

Cranial Osteopathy is a refined and subtle form of Osteopathic treatment which uses gentle physical therapy. It encourages the release of stress and tension from various parts of the body with an emphasis on the cranial region. 

The philosophy of Cranial Osteopathy is that the body is an interconnected, self-healing system. It believes that the framework of the body is closely related to the function of the body. Naturally, any disturbance in the body’s structure would interrupt the bodily systems’ functions, creating an array of conditions and subsequent symptoms. 

Tensions and stresses are expressed as a disruption in the body’s cranial rhythm. This kind of Osteopathy focuses on observing and treating such disruptions using a gentle, safe, soothing and effective approach. 

Cranial Osteopaths are trained to detect subtle rhythmic shape change present throughout the body; this kind of rhythmic change is called involuntary motion. Impacts on the head can disrupt the cranial rhythm. Cranial Osteopaths aim to manipulate the musculoskeletal structure gently, thus helping in calming the disruptions.

This is an excellent choice of physical therapy for those who dislike vigorous massages or exercises which are very physically exertive. This branch of Osteopathy works gently to help you find a better balance sustainably and painlessly. Since it is a low-impact therapy, it can be used on people of all ages and can assist with rehabilitation from a wide range of conditions. It is well-suited for people who have headaches or backaches.

It is also suitable for anyone who generally cannot opt for exertive therapies or exercises because some exercises might end up causing them more pain. Anyone recovering from minor surgeries and still experiencing pain but cannot take intensive physical therapy may also benefit from Cranial Osteopathy

As we have already discussed, this kind of treatment resorts to tender manual massage to identify tensions in the tissues and rebalance the troubled regions. Some of the issues that cranial Osteopathy can be beneficial for are as follows:

  • Headaches: As the term “cranial” suggests, this form of Osteopathy is primarily focused on the brain and the surrounding systems. It naturally helps with different kinds of headaches and migraines.
  • Neck and Back Pain: One of the other main focuses of this sort of therapy is the spine. Naturally, it can be beneficial to those who are suffering from aches in their necks and backs. 
  • Insomnia: Being a subtle form of massage, cranial Osteopathy is rather soothing to your senses and helps you centre yourself more along with restoring balance. As a natural result, it might help you out if you have insomnia or other sleeping troubles. 
  • Stress and Tension: This gentle form of Osteopathy is meant to help you and your mind relax; unsurprisingly, it is beneficial for people with stress and tension. 
  • Anxiety: Anxiety is an extreme end of stress and tension, which creates a serious difficulty in relaxing. Taking a break and cranial Osteopathy can help you calm yourself and stay centred in the long run. 
  • Digestive Problems, Issues related to ears and eyes, etc.
