Osteopathy for children

Cranial Osteopathy is a gentle form of treatment, which is ideal for the treatment of children. We treat children from newborn to adulthood. 
 
It’s never too early or too late to bring your child.
We’re well known for helping with sleep and unsettled behaviour. However we can help with so many more things. If you’re not sure what’s covered please email or phone us. Here are some of the obvious things we do:
  • alleviate aches and pains
  • aid relaxation and help children sleep
  • improve digestive problems
  • assist recovery from injuries and illnesses 

We happily work with children who have additional needs, such as those with disabilities, learning difficulties or complex and longterm illness.

What happens during an appointment?

The first appointment starts with a detailed overview of your child’s health history to see what might be causing their symptoms.

There may be many factors to take into account including their gestation, birth, family health history and any accidents or illnesses since birth.

We will then assess your child to see what might help.

Childrens’ skeletons are softer than adult’s and therefore we use gentler techniques to assess and treat children such as massage, stretching and cranial osteopathy. 

Children find treatment relaxing and will often ask to come back (as soon as they’re old enough to speak, that is)!

During the appointment we will discussion with you what we think might be causing their problems. We will also talk through what we can do to help and what you can do at home. And, of course, there is the very special treatment.
