What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a safe form of treatment. Osteopaths use their hands both to discover the underlying causes of pain and to carry out treatment using a variety of techniques from massage of soft tissues to manipulation and movement of joints.
The cranial approach uses very gentle techniques in which the osteopath’s highly trained sense of touch is used to identify and correct disturbances and limitations of tissue mobility, not only in and around the joints of the skull, but throughout the body.
What Can It Help?

Cranial Osteopathy :
is a holistic healing practice that uses very light touching to balance the craniosacral system in the body, which includes the bones, nerves, fluids, and connective tissues of the cranium and spinal area.
According to Upledger, craniosacral therapy is ideally suited for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder , headaches, chronic middle ear infection, pain , and general health maintenance. It is recommended for autism, fibromyalgia, heart disease, osteoarthritis, pneumonia, rheumatoid arthritis , chronic sinus infections , and gastroenteritis (inflammation of the lining of the stomach or small intestine). It is also used with other therapies to treat chronic fatigue syndrome , back pain, and menstrual irregularity. In addition, other craniosacral practitioners have reported benefits for eye dysfunction, dyslexia, depression , motor coordination difficulties, temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD), hyperactivity, colic, asthma in babies, floppy baby syndrome, whiplash, cerebral palsy , certain birth defects, and other central nervous system disorders.
Visceral Therapy is a technique focusing on gentle mobilization of internal organs and their fascial connections to promote synchronized movement between the organs and structures that are associated with these organs in the body.
Viscera are the soft internal organs of the body (such as the liver and bladder). These organs have a natural rhythm and motion and are intended to move in harmony with each other. When organs are out of synchronicity with other organs and tissues, it not only affects the optimal performance of the organ itself, but it also affects the surrounding tissue that is connected to the organ through the fascial system. This can lead to pain in areas far from the area in the body where the organ lies.
By using visceral manipulation, we can improve mobility of the connective tissue to help improve organ mobility and function. This can result in decreased pain in areas of the body affected by the organ and promote the body’s natural healing process.
