Cranial Therapy
can enhance your health
and well-being

Elizabeth Clayton DO, Cranial and Physical Practitioner

Clinics in Axminster & Chardstock, Devon.

Welcome to our practice where we offer gentle treatment for the whole family, from newborn to the elderly. We have a special interest in cranial-sacral treatment.

However the phrase “Cranial Therapy” can be misleading as it implies treatment of the head only. We use these gentle yet powerful techniques across the WHOLE body in our treatments.

Cranial Therapy in Axminster – About the treatment

  • Gentle hands-on treatment of the whole person
  • Relieving aches, pains, stiffness and tension
  • Soothing the nervous system
  • This gentle and effective treatment is suitable for ALL ages including babies and children, adults and pregnant women.
  • Improving alignment and balance within the body as a whole using a combination of cranio-sacral treatment, massage, stretching, mobilising, advice about posture, body-use and exercises

Our approach to healthcare

Our holistic approach to healthcare focuses on the structure and function of the body so we consider, for example, muscles, ligaments, nerves, bones, joints and the circulation of fluids as well as the Involuntary Rhythm throughout the body.

We use our hands to relieve pain, tension and stiffness, helping you to feel more comfortable and to help your whole body function more efficiently.  We pay attention to detail and aim to help people to help themselves, not just provide a quick fix.

We consider all aspects of a person’s welfare including physical and mental, exercise and relaxation, nutrition, body-use and posture, effects of physical and emotional stress.
