How is Cranial Osteopathy different from Functional Osteopathy?
Functional Osteopathy works on the joints with soft tissue techniques such as neuromuscular massage, passive mobilisation, and where necessary manipulation. Cranial Osteopathy focuses mainly on the subtle rebalancing of the PRM using gentle rhythmic movements on the cranium and the sacrum. The patient can feel the many benefits of Cranial Osteopathy after several sessions with the Osteopath. Many Osteopaths combine both Functional and Cranial Osteopathy in a single session where necessary.
