Cranial osteopathy at Leeds Complementary

Here at Leeds Complementary, we’ve been proudly helping the people of Leeds with Cranial Osteopathy. Learn more about how Cranial Osteopathy can help you.

What is Cranial Osteopathy?

Cranial osteopathy is a refined and subtle type of osteopathic treatment that encourages the release of stresses and tensions throughout the body, including the head. It is a gentle yet extremely effective approach and may be used in a wide range of conditions for people of all ages, from birth to old age. Osteopaths may have different specialities including sports injuries, paediatrics, and visceral osteopathy (treating the internal organs of the body). Cranial osteopathy embraces all of these.

How can Cranial Osteopathy help?

Cranial Osteopathy is an extremely gentle, yet potent part of our work. It can be used in many ways but is particularly relevant in the treatment of the after–effects of difficult births, dental work and head injuries.
Many young children and babies do not fully recover from the mechanical stresses of birth, the results of which include such conditions as colic, and behavioural and sleep disturbances. We are also happy to see women during pregnancy, to forestall mechanical disturbances in the body that could adversely affect giving birth.

What can I expect?

It is a particularly subtle and gentle form of treatment focusing on the ‘release’ of stress and tension from all parts of the body, including the head.
It is used to treat a variety of conditions notably those caused by a build-up of residual tension in the body. When osteopaths examine babies areas of tension are often found in the spine or head, which are indications that the baby is uncomfortable.
A baby cannot complain of backache or headache, and will typically express this by crying and being unsettled or irritable.
