About Cranial Osteopathy in Horsham

 

Cranial osteopathy is a very gentle form of osteopathy. It involves light touch and very subtle techniques rather than strong manipulations. It is therefore very safe, and often used to treat babies and young children whose skeletons are softer than an adult’s.

Cranial osteopathy is also used with adult patients, either by itself or in combination with more structural techniques. Some adults prefer the subtle approach of cranial osteopathy; others find structural treatment more beneficial. Your osteopath will work with you to develop the right treatment approach for you
