Treatment with cranial osteopathy can benefit patients of any age from newborns to the elderly, because the techniques of cranial osteopathy are very gentle.
Cranial treatment can be used in a variety of difficult situations, from infants who have suffered from birth trauma to patients with painful conditions that make other hands-on approaches unsuitable. Many patients also use cranial osteopathy in their routine for maintaining ongoing good health, even if they do not have a specific health complaint at the time of treatment.
Osteopaths can help patients with a wide variety of conditions. Patients often report significant improvements in conditions ranging from acute injuries to chronic pain conditions, respiratory illness, depression, infectious processes, digestive complaints, anxiety, developmental delays, and learning disorders.
While osteopathy is not a panacea that will cure all illnesses, many people have found that it can help them greatly, often in unexpected ways.
