Frequently Asked Questions...


Let's get you some answers

What is Cranial Osteopathy?

Babies have muscles and tissues that get tight, just like you do.


Cranial Osteopaths are highly trained to detect areas of tension in the body, whether as a result of birth or an impact such as a fall, a hit with a ball or even teething.

Using gentle touch, Cranial Osteopaths attempt to remove this tension and relieve areas of pressure through the body. This simply enables the body to function as it should, unimpeded by tension or pressure. Thats all. Nothing to be afraid of.

What symptoms do Cranial Osteopaths treat?

• Colic / Reflux

• Sleeping difficulties

• Unconsolable crying

• Feeding difficulties

• Constipation

• Irritability

• Glue ear / Recurrent ear infections

• Aspergers / Autism

• Learning difficulties

• ADHD/Hyperactivity

• Headaches

• Epilepsy
