History

Osteopathy was developed in the USA in the 1870s by an American, Dr Andrew Taylor Still, and has spread across the world since.

The principles are that if there is a structural imbalance in the body, this can lead to a disturbance of function. The nerve supply, blood supply and drainage can be affected, causing a wide variety of conditions.

Cranial Osteopathy

Cranial Osteopathy was developed in the USA in the 1930s by William Sutherland. He realised that the bones of the skull had the capacity to move, from which it gets its misleading name. He developed techniques for treating the bones of the head but also for the whole body. It follows Osteopathic principles but uses very gentle techniques, making it particularly suitable for treating babies, as well as people of all ages.
