Realign Misplaced Bones In A Safest And Most Effective Way With Our Expert Cranial Osteopath Team


The term "cranial osteopathy" refers to a delicate and sophisticated method of osteopathy that incorporates the anatomy and physiology of the head while adhering to all the basic principles of osteopathy.


Cranial osteopaths employ a highly developed sense of touch to detect minute variations in tissue quality and tension in the live architecture of the entire body and to identify stressed or dysfunctional areas.


The body parts affected by historical occurrences, such as old accidents and injuries, are frequently the focus of the osteopath's attention. Although the patient may not be aware of any problems, the body may have developed a defence mechanism against a traumatic incident or injury. Yet, the effects may still be present and connected to the patient's current symptoms.


Treatment and diagnosis go hand in hand because an osteopath works to stimulate the body's natural capacity for self-healing while also providing gentle, targeted support where it is required to bring the tissues into a state of balance and release, which allows the body to heal itself and be restored to health.

This method teaches the osteopath to pay attention to and follow the body's inner guidance system, which may differ from the perspective of the patient and the osteopath regarding what is wrong. By identifying and treating the underlying source of the symptoms, the osteopath can lessen the likelihood that they will recur in the future. Osteopathy has been shown to reduce pain more effectively than the alternatives.


Cranial therapy can be used alone or in conjunction with other osteopathic procedures, and it can be beneficial for adults, children, and infants. Cranial osteopathy is a form of osteopathic care that promotes the body's ability to release tension and stress.


It is a method that may be utilised everywhere on the body, despite being frequently referred to as "cranial osteopathy" because many treatments are carried out on the face and head.


The skilled osteopaths at La Dolce Studio in Fulham have a highly developed sense of touch that allows them to detect minute motions, strains, or stains in the body. Patients report feeling calm during treatment, along with a little sensation of heat or moving tissues.

About Cranial Osteopathy

The fundamental ideas that underlie osteopathy are also present in cranial osteopathy, sometimes referred to as craniosacral treatment. It uses a non-invasive, holistic approach to treat the full person, gently moving, massaging, and stretching the musculoskeletal system to enhance health and return the body to a state of balanced functioning. 


It varies from other forms of osteopathic treatment, such as structural and visceral osteopathic treatment, in that it concentrates more on using gentle head and spine manipulation to alleviate issues throughout patients' bodies.


Osteopaths who specialise in cranial osteopathy use their years of rigorous training and highly developed sense of touch to detect minute alterations, tensions, and rhythms in the underneath bone and soft tissue. 


They can then use their delicate, safe, and subtle cranial palpation techniques to reduce pressure and pain after precisely diagnosing the regions of strain and malfunction. Additionally, this promotes the body's natural ability to heal itself, decreasing the risk of recurring symptoms.

Cranial osteopathy is renowned for being extremely soothing and gentle. Every patient reacts to treatment differently; some have moderate sensations like tension and soreness, while others experience feelings of warmth and contentment.

How Does Cranial Osteopathy Work?

Cranial osteopathy uses gentle manipulation of the head and spine to relieve tension throughout the body. According to osteopaths, brain manipulation is an all-cure method since it helps to enhance cranial rhythm, which helps with various health problems. Since cranial osteopathy improves the health of the body, mind, and spirit, it is considered a naturopathic medicine. 


The psychological justification for CST is that all bodily functions, both voluntary and involuntary, are under the direction of the brain. The brain and spinal cord make up the central nervous system.


For this reason, the brain and spinal cord are gently massaged during the treatment. Because it governs our choices, responses, and emotions, the central nervous system is intricate. It determines how we respond to pain, happiness, sadness, and pleasure. The condition of our brain and spinal cord influences our overall health.


Significance Of A Cranial Osteopath

Osteopaths learn a wide range of treatment techniques and approaches during their training, from the well-known "high-velocity thrust" with its loud clicks to the extremely delicate methods employed in cranial osteopathy. Depending on their personal preferences and each patient's specific problems, osteopaths use various therapy modalities.


The term "cranial osteopath" refers to osteopaths practising at the milder, more subtle end of the spectrum of available therapeutic modalities.


The entire body undergoes a very subtle rhythmic form shift, and cranial osteopaths are trained to detect it. It's known as involuntary motion. The 26 bones that make up the skull are carefully connected so that the skull modifies somewhat in shape throughout the periodic cycle of involuntary motion to fit the brain's typical involuntary movements.


This movement can be hindered or stopped by blows to the head. It can lead to many issues in the skull and the body. Osteopaths use involuntary motion in the tissues to determine a patient's state of health or whether anything is impeding normal tissue movement.


Children and infants can receive safe treatment with cranial osteopathy. When necessary, precise, gentle pressure is provided to help the body's natural healing process relieve tension that could impede important processes, including digestion, feeding, and sleep cycles.
