Welcome to Cranial Osteopath North East

 

What does Cranial Osteopathy involve?

At Cranial Osteopath North East the first thing we always explain is that Cranial Osteopathy isn’t a separate thing in itself. It’s actually a name for an approach that Osteopaths use. If you go and see a ‘Cranial Osteopath’ you’re consulting with an Osteopath, registered with the General Osteopathic Council who’s done further training and specialised in using the cranial approach. We’re a centre of excellence at Cranial Osteopathy North East with Members and Fellows of the Sutherland Cranial College of Osteopathy who have qualifications up to Doctorate level.

Avoiding the P-word

Avoiding the P-word

I find it fascinating, the way our brains work.  The brain contains billions of nerve cells and each of these cells talks to thousands of others.  But how do they communicate?  The answer is that they send each other messages across a special junction between them. ...

Heat or Ice – Which Should I Use?

At WBOC we’re often asked this question so here’s some information to help you. Firstly, it helps to understand why hot/cold may help you. It’s all to do with circulation. Good circulation is important for good health and for allowing your body to recover and repair....

Who are we?

Osteopaths are highly trained Allied Health Professionals, recognised by the NHS as fully qualified to diagnose and treat independently. We’re trained to screen for medical conditions and will advise you if you need to see another health professional, such as your GP or midwife. It takes a minimum of 4 years full time study to become a qualified osteopath, and requires over 1,000 hours of clinical experience.

We help you back to health

 

How does it work?

Cranial Osteopathy works on a more subtle level than some of the more general stretches, clicks, mobilisations and other hands-on approaches that you may have experienced before. But the aim of this approach is still the same. We use a highly trained sense of touch to feel changes of tension and tissue quality in the whole body. In this way we work with areas of strain or dysfunction to help you back to health.

 

What does it feel like?

‘It feels amazing’. That’s what lots of our patients say. They also say that it feels relaxing, interesting, healing or fascinating. Some people don’t say much at all as they move into a state of deep peacefulness during treatment. The cranial approach is gentle. It’s so gentle that this is the type of work we do with babies and children from new-borns to teenagers. In fact this approach is safe and suitable for people of all ages. You can find out more about what happens at your first appointment here.

We’re always happy to speak with you and explain further if you’re still not sure. Ring our reception number 0191 252 1555 and arrange to speak to one of us.
