What Is Cranial Therapy?
Many people think of the skull as one solid bone with a brain inside. In fact, it is a complex system of individual bones fitting together like a 3D jigsaw puzzle.
Cranial therapy releases restricted skull joints and their supporting tissues through a painless procedure involving gentle application of focussed pressure. It is a gentle, safe and extremely effective approach and may be used in a wide range of conditions for people of all ages, from birth to old age.
What Our Patients Say
“After years of back pain and countless visits to various chiropractors, discovering Barnes Chiropractic Healthcare with their unique attitude to chiropractic care has been a breath of fresh air. Their complete holistic approach including cranial treatment has done wonders for my body and wellbeing.” D Cubitt
Cranial chiropractors have undertaken extra training over several years after first graduating in chiropractic. They have become skilled in the assessment and treatment of cranial and jaw related conditions. Cranial treatment is usually integrated with the chiropractic approach, so that the spine, pelvis and cranium and their relationship to the nervous system are all given equal priority.
“Around the time my wife was pregnant with our first daughter in 2005, I was very interested in the benefits of cranial and chiropractic care for the pregnant patient and for babies, so I underwent studies and training in cranial therapy and S.O.T. (Sacro-Occipital Technique). It’s been a fantastic set of skills to be able to offer my patients.” – Julian Keel
Many practitioners of chiropractic cranial therapy will agree that intrauterine constraint due to the mother’s pelvis being out of balance could lead to a strain being applied to a baby’s head during pregnancy and many also recognise that the birth process is probably where the skull and spine are put under extra pressures. Other causes of cranial stress may include problems with jaw joint function or the bite, some types of dental procedures or direct trauma to the head.
