Babies’ skeletons are softer than an adult’s and osteopaths will therefore use gentler techniques such as cranial osteopathy when treating babies. Osteopathy is a gentle treatment suitable for children and babies.

Osteopaths utilise a range of techniques including physical manipulation, stretching and massage, and other techniques such as Cranial.

Cranial techniques are safe, gentle, and non-manipulative. The are often used when treating young children and newborn infants.

Gentle manipulation could help soothe and relax your baby.

Osteopaths work under the principle that there may be a number of contributing factors to the symptoms and will therefore evaluate not only the area which is producing the symptoms but also associated areas that may be contributing to the issue, including nutrition, past trauma, previous injury, social/relationships, environmental factors and family health history to manage your health holistically.
