I came across the following recently in a book (Man with a Blue Scarf, p156) about the artist Lucian Freud:
‘LF arrives after a few minutes looking somehow as if an electric current had been passed through his hair. ‘How are you?’ ‘I’m feeling rather crazy, as I’ve just come from my cranial osteopath.’
It reminded me of something the receptionists at the centre where Ged and I worked used to say. They could always spot people who had just had cranial treatments because of the ‘cranial walk’. It also prompted me to dig out the following from the last couple of years.
Meera Syal – comedian and actress and mother:
A short video on how her cranial osteopath helped her baby sleep. It was part of an advertising campaign with big posters on the tube in London saying ‘Me and my goldfish love cranial osteopathy’. (The goldfish is a credit card).
Heston Blumenthal – superstar chef:
On how cranial work helped him with anger.
An Irish actor
On how cranial work helped with Migraines.
An Aussie rules footballer (never heard of him I am afraid):
He calls his craniosacral therapist ‘Moses’ for his healing abilities
