Craniosacral Osteopathy is a refined and subtle type of treatment
that encourages the release of stresses and tensions throughout
the body, including the head.
It is based on a number of findings about the body’s subtle
physiology, such as the intrinsic ability of the body to heal itself
and self-regulate. This ability expresses itself as the intrinsic
mobility of all parts of the body. Restrictions in this mobility
may affect the mechanisms of self-regulation and produce symptoms.
It is a gentle and yet extremely effective approach that may be
used to treat a wide range of conditions in people of all ages,
from birth to old age.
In response to physical trauma or emotional stress, the body’s
tissues react. Any stresses, strains and tensions which remain in
the body may affect its functions and give rise to problems over
time. The effects can be both physical and emotional. This therapy
provides an opportunity for the body to let go of its restrictive
patterns and return to a normal mode of functioning.
