Babies & children

As for a new mother, birth can be traumatic for a baby, straining areas of your baby’s neck and skull.  By using gentle massage techniques, an osteopath can relieve the strain on these areas and relax your baby.

Osteopathy also stimulates the lymphatic system – some parents find this can be particularly effective when treating the symptoms of various childhood illnesses.

As babies become children and then adolescents, there is anecdotal evidence to suggest that osteopathy can sometimes be used to alleviate a variety of mental and physical symptoms.  We are happy to discuss the various treatment plans that could help your child.
