Cranial osteopathy uses the same principles as structural osteopathy, insofar it aims to use the musculoskeletal system of the body to promote well-being and relieve tension and stress. Cranial osteopathy may place emphasis on the tissues of the head, though this is not always the case. Cranial osteopathy also works on the principles that non-invasive, gentle manipulation of joints and tissues can promote overall physical well-being.
Cranial osteopathy is a treatment which is suitable for infants, adults and the elderly.
Osteopathy treatment is covered by most Private Health Insurance
