Cranial Techniques & Homeopathy

Cranial techniques are different – using a more gentle and subtle style of Hands-on care.

Patients may feel sensations of pressure or warmth, either under the Osteopath’s hands or elsewhere – most patients feel that gradually the tension is being drawn out of their body and they become deeply relaxed.

Cranial techniques can be used together or separately with other types of osteopathic treatment as required.





Karen Phillips offers Cranial techniques with her other osteopathic skills in Maidenhead, when the case, and individual are most appropriate and when a patient specifically requests this type of technique.  She is available on Tuesday, Thursday  & Friday mornings.
