“What is the difference between cranial osteopathy and traditional osteopathy?“
Cranial osteopathy is the gentle application of minimal pressure to plates of bone in the skull and spine. Here the palpating hand of the physician will be receiving information from the body’s own natural movements from within. These movements will be directed and guided to effect a release in any areas where there is a blockage or lack of movement.
Traditional Osteopathy treatment is the application of the physician’s hand external to the body applying a gentle pressure to access and treat lack of flexibility.
