Reply To: Cranial Osteopath as tool to help with glue ear?

Joanna Mather

Hi Jo,
Do they mean craniosacral therapy?
This has roots in osteopathy but the specific approach I’m aware of does not involve ‘manipulation’; it’s a hands-on, light touch, whole person therapy. It is reputed to free-up restrictions. I’d look at The Craniosacral Society to find out more.
As with all therapies, it is recommended that the parents confirm that the practitioner is a member of an approved professional organisation etc. Also, if they want to pursue this, for them to discuss relevance and expectations before making any appointment.
Hope this helps.
