Cranial Osteopathy

ABOUT 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. Cranial osteopathy embraces all of these.

Cranial osteopathy is based on the theory that the 22 bones in the skull move continuously, in a cogwheel fashion. In a healthy person, this cogwheel movement would be functioning well, resulting in excellent drainage of the head and optimised efficiency of the cranial nerves. Cranial osteopaths are trained to feel a very subtle, rhythmical shape change that is present in all body tissues. This is called Involuntary Motion or the Cranial Rhythm. The movement is of very small amplitude, therefore it takes practitioners with a very finely developed sense of touch to feel it.

If you have any concerns about your baby’s or your own health, we always recommend you seek the advice of your GP. However we have often found GPs and midwives recommend cranial osteopathy.

Cranial Osteopathy can be performed on people of all ages, including children, the elderly and even pregnant women.

CRANIAL OSTEOPATHY CAN HELP WITH

1. Back and Neck Pain

2. Headaches arising from neck pain and migraine prevention

3. Digestive issues

4. Muscle Spasms

THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANISATION HAS RECOGNISED OSTEOPATHY AS AN EFFECTIVE TREATMENT

Our osteopaths are all registered with the General Osteopathic Council and are very skilled at what they do. They have been professionally trained to not just focus on one area of treatment, but rather to focus on the body as a whole.

TESTIMONIALS

Great Osteopath Philip McNulty cures all my ills wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Angie

I had a wonderful experience with Jason and the team at The Forge. Jason listened attentively to my issue and provided treatment in a very professional manner which has greatly alleviated my level of pain. The whole process from booking to follow-up has been most impressive. I would highly recommend The Forge for anyone seeking professional and thorough treatment with a genuine interest in, and care for patient well-being.

Tristan is a magician. Both my 15-year-old daughter and I have had numerous treatments (my daughter for a sports related injury and to get me through the London Marathon). Tristan talks you through everything he is doing, and we have both literally skipped out after seeing him. Couldn’t recommend highly enough.

E.M.

Yasmin is a fantastic Osteopath, she uses a combination of Acupuncture and massage work with me. I have an ongoing jaw issue and she is amazing at fixing that. She offers lovely Cranial Osteopathy too.

“David Silver is an outstanding practitioner. He is clever, sensitive, thoughtful and proactive in enabling me to feel empowered to improve my own health. Would highly recommend him and this practice.”

“Rory is an enthusiastic and knowledgeable practitioner, who was very positive about the outcome of our treatments. There was great improvement in my back pain after a couple of sessions and I am now happy to say that I am pain free and confident I have the tools I need to avoid it in the future!

F. C.

“I was very happy with Lara, who is a lovely person. She listens and gently makes suggestions. I enjoyed our weekly sessions and the encouragement she unobtrusively gave. I’ll be seeing her again.”

R.S.

“I have been seeing Mr Phil McNulty for quite a few years- and I must say he has looked after my back and neck problems with great professionalism, integrity and skill. So now I am able to live pain free, considering that I had had 5 back operations previously. Thank you.”

V.T.

“One day prior to going on holiday I injured my back and was just about to cancel when I remembered The Forge Clinic. I visited Tristan Jones and in 45 minutes he had me back on my feet and thanks to him he saved my holiday.”

J.H.

“A session with Julie is informative and interesting with advice that really targets your particular health issue. I cannot recommend Julie highly enough.”
