Giving your new born a head start
Most people who have heard of Osteopathy, know us as the back pain specialists. It is not common knowledge that Osteopaths treat children and babies and can help their development especially in the early stages.
Cranial osteopathy is very gentle, safe and effective. It encourages the release of tension and stresses in the head and body often caused by the birth. Osteopaths hold and observe the baby, carefully manipulating the body to encourage it to function as it should.
Osteopathy can help babies and children experiencing:
Plagiocephaly, Flat Head or Odd Shaped Head
Colic or Excessive Crying;
Here's what one of my mums said about how Osteopathy has helped her child: "Alice has been working with Isla since she was just a few weeks old and made such a difference with Isla's development! Before having her I never really knew what the role of an osteopath consists of, but after 8 months of Isla's treatment I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Alice to any of my friends with or without babies! She is a credit to the osteopath job title!"
From my experience, seeing they way mother's have responded to this range of treatment has shown what benefit and reassurance they get with a trained professional actively aiding the development of their newborns from such an early age.
