Cranial Osteopathy is a gentle hands on therapy which can benefit all ages. Its non-intrusive, subtle approach can bring benefits to people suffering from all manner of ailments from stress to arthritis. Dorothy Smith practices Cranial Osteopathy at Bellenden Therapies.

People may come for Cranial Osteopathy because they have acute physical problems like headaches or a bad back, or long-standing problems both physical and emotional. Others come for ongoing support in their busy lives and for help to meet life’s challenges. During a Cranial Osteopathy session a full health history will be taken to gather information about you and the reasons for your visit that may enhance the therapy.

Because it is so gentle and non-invasive, Cranial Osteopathy is suitable for everyone from newborns to the elderly. Mothers and babies often come for problems associated with difficult or traumatic births. Letting go of tension held in the body enables both to settle into calmness.
