The philosophy behind this approach recognises that our natural state of being is health and that the capacity to heal is inherent within all of us. The same forces that guides the development in the womb is the same force that guides the repair of all our cells even later in life. A cranial osteopath can feel these forces in your body’s tissues, and can feel if any injuries, emotional strains, stress or illnesses impair this underlying health, vitality and life energy.
Of course we all experience various stresses in life, but with each new stress or strain the body may find it harder and harder to release them, which can affect your wellbeing; both physically and emotionally.
Cranial Osteopathy can help to support your body’s inner healing mechanism by supporting the health that is already present, and by helping to ease the strains and stresses that may restrict the healthy flow of life energy in all the body’s tissues, such as joints, muscles, fascia and nervous system. In this way Cranial Osteopathy may help to promote your general wellbeing, as well as easing pain and discomfort in your muscles and joints, and helping to balance your nervous system.
