Cranial, or Craniosacral Osteopathy is not actually a separate form of osteopathy - anyone who calls themselves a 'Cranial Osteopath' will have trained as an osteopath and then chosen to do further detailed postgraduate study using this particular form of gentle assessment and treatment. It is often suitable for people who are unable to tolerate stronger treatments such as manipulation or deep tissue massage.
Helena is an expert in the Cranial Osteopathic approach; she holds a postgraduate diploma in Cranial Osteopathy and has taught it extensively at postgraduate level to other osteopaths. She has been using Cranial Osteopathy for over 15 years and often uses it in her work in her special interest areas (treatment of pregnant mums, infants and children, head pain and the osteopathic treatment of animals) as well as all the other problems people may have when they come to see an Osteopath.
Many of Helena's patients state that Cranial (Craniosacral) Osteopathy, as a hands-on treatment, is profoundly relaxing that it has relieved their pain (or other symptoms); and it has helped them function better and feel better in themselves.
