Osteopathy and Cranial Osteopathy

Osteopaths use a very wide range of manual treatment approaches, many of them very gentle and subtle to ease out areas of tension and restricted mobility, help improve local circulation and help the body to return to a better state of balance and health.

Cranial Osteopaths use a highly trained sense of touch to feel subtle changes of tension and tissue quality in the living anatomy of the whole body, and to diagnose areas of strain or dysfunction.

Penelope Godwin graduated from the British School of Osteopathy now renamed the (University College of Osteopathy) in 1987. She worked in private practice and as a clinic tutor in London for many years before moving down to Devon. She uses both structural and cranial techniques, preferring a more gentle approach  for her treatments.

Osteopathic treatment is suitable for all ages. Osteopathy is a manual therapy that treats the whole person not just the condition. Using the principles of osteopathy a wide variety of conditions can be helped including:

  • Joint pains including hip and knee pain from osteoarthritis as an adjunct to core OA treatments and exercises.
  • General acute and chronic backache
  • Neck pain and associated headaches
  • Shoulder problems arising from associated musculoskeletal conditions of the neck and back


Stresses and strains from labour or pregnancy can lead to unsettled behaviour and difficulties with feeding, winding, bowel movements and sleeping. Relieving any physical strains with osteopathic treatment can be very helpful and relaxing.
