Cranial Osteopathy Marlow

What is cranial osteopathy?

Cranial Osteopathy uses gentle touch, often focussed on the head or sacrum, in order to release strains and tension held in the body which may be preventing it from functioning properly. Cranial Osteopathy is an effective treatment for all ages and for a wide range of conditions.

Thank you for all your wonderful help and support for my son. Before your treatments, Jamie’s headaches and neck pain were getting so bad that he couldn’t concentrate on his school work and wasn’t able to effectively prepare for his exams. It was a very stressful period. You really helped ease his symptoms and allow him to return to a normal life. I wish I had known about the effectiveness of cranial treatment for orthodontic work beforehand!

I can’t thank you enough for what you have done for Zach (and all your kind words!). He is now a much more contented baby. It was clear when Zach was 6-weeks that he was suffering with colic-type symptoms, he looked like he was in a lot of pain and had that real high-pitched cry at night time. With each treatment, I always noticed an improvement; crying less, sleeping better and opening his bowels easier. I thought there was no light at the end of the tunnel but osteopathic treatment has worked wonders!

Thank you so much for treating our baby daughter. After researching osteopathic treatment for colic, I brought her to see you. Within 3 treatments you have really helped her. I don’t know what you did on Wednesday but she can now turn her head to the right side easily too!

Our son has seen Ann for 4 sessions so far. She has a wonderful approach with him, is very calm, engaging and manages to get him to lie still for the session – quite an achievement as he’s naturally a restless child! Within 2 sessions, we started to see some of his anxieties reduce, an improvement in his jaw problem and a significant improvement in his sleep pattern.
