What Is Cranial Osteopathy?

Cranial osteopathy is a form of osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT). OMT is a type of therapy that involves manipulating the body in a way that encourages healing, improves mobility, and stimulates the body’s natural healing processes. Visually, it can look similar to chiropractic or conventional physical therapy (although the underlying principles are somewhat different).

Cranial osteopathy is a focused type of OMT. It supports whole-body wellness, but it focuses primarily on manipulating the head, neck, and spine. It involves gentle, precise movements that promote proper fluid circulation in the head and spinal area.
