As any new mother knows, although babies are generally flexible and resilient, they can become irritable and unsettled and can undergo considerable stresses and strains as they negotiate their way into the world through the process of childbirth.
Osteopaths work gently with babies – using their highly developed sense of touch – treating them with a range of gentle and safe massage-type techniques. Although these techniques are sometimes referred to as ‘cranial osteopathy’, they can be employed anywhere on your baby’s body.
Osteopaths work alongside other medical professionals and their treatment of your baby is seen as complementary to any advice given to you by your doctor or physician.
As a multi-disciplinary clinic we are also able to offer additional services which may be of benefit to new mothers such as reiki, massage, one-on-one personal training and Pilates.
