Cranio Sacral Therapy Hong Kong
Cranio sacral therapy is sometimes also referred to as craniosacral therapy. It’s a type of bodywork that relieves compression in the bones of the head, sacrum (a triangular bone in the lower back), and spinal column.
Cranio sacral therapy is thought to relieve compression in the head, neck, and back. This can soothe pain and release both emotional and physical stress and tension. It’s also thought to help restore cranial mobility and ease or release restrictions of the head, neck, and nerves.
Cranio sacral therapy can be used for people of all ages. It may be part of your treatment for conditions like:
migraines and headaches
disturbed sleep cycles and insomnia
recurrent ear infections or colic in infants
trauma recovery, including trauma from whiplash
mood disorders like anxiety or depression

Giulia Curro - Osteopath M. Ost. (UK), MHKOA, N.D.
Born in Como, Italy, but having relocated to the UK at an early age, Giulia graduated from The British College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2016. Since then she has had the pleasure of working alongside other Osteopaths, as well as Naturopaths, Dietitians, and Dentists. This experience had made her practice a varied approach - which is always patient-centered. It also developed her interest in the jaw and the relationship with the spine and posture, as well as women’s and children's health plus dietetics.
Her philosophy is to address the issue at hand while providing tools so that the issue does not return. She believes the best results can be achieved through lifestyle change and exercise, while looking at structure and function.
Giulia is registered with the General Osteopathic Council, the Institute of Osteopathy, the British Naturopathy Association and the HK Osteopathic Association.
She is fluent in Italian, English and French
Théo Chapman - Osteopath M. Ost. (UK), MHKOA (HK)
Théo earned his Master of Osteopathy qualification from the European School of Osteopathy in 2020.
He combines traditional osteopathic manual techniques with evidence-based rehab methods to ensure progress is made both on and off the treatment table. He also has Western Medical Acupuncture in his therapeutic tool kit.
Théo has a particular interest in treating active individuals suffering from injuries that are preventing their pursuit of physical activities important to them. His experience dealing with multiple sports injuries and the psychological challenges that accompany them are what motivates him to help his patients progress out of pain.
It is Théo's perspective that injuries, sports induced or otherwise, require an active approach (corrective exercise) in addition to manual therapy to achieve optimal results. Using one method in isolation leads to sub-optimal outcomes and potentially delayed return to the sports we love.
