Cranial Osteopathy is a refined and subtle type of osteopathic treatment that uses very gentle  pressure to encourage the release of stresses throughout the body.
‘Cranial Osteopath’ is the name by which osteopaths who work at the more gentle, subtle end of the spectrum of different treatment approaches, have become known.  It does not mean that the Osteopath just treats the head. Cranial Osteopaths are trained to feel a very subtle , rhythmical pattern of motion that is present in all the body tissues.
It is very effective where the body has suffered any form of trauma. It can have profound effects on the whole body.

Michelle not only uses cranial osteopathy but also articulation, manipulation, stretching, soft tissue massage and muscle energy techniques.

The body can be likened to a car, in that it needs regular servicing and maintenance, as it gets older!
Osteopaths treat the whole person not just conditions, and thus a very wide variety of different problems can be helped.
Osteopathic treatment is aimed at releasing strains and stresses that have accumulated in the body over many years, thus improving the circulation to all parts of the body. The result is often an improvement in many different aspects of health.
This means that suffering pain, stiffness and poor health are NOT an inevitable part of getting older.

Arthritis can affect any joint in the body, but the back, hips and knees are some of the most debilitating.
Gentle osteopathic treatment improves circulation around the joint, improves mobility and slows the rate of deterioration in the joint.
If replacement surgery is needed, the body tissues are generally in better health and the recovery is swifter.
Treatment after surgery also speeds up recovery.
