Osteopathy is primary health care, focusing on diagnosis, treatment, prevention and rehabilitation. It is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together.
Osteopaths work to restore your body to a state of balance, to enhance the circulation and nerve supply to tissues, and to help your body’s own healing mechanisms.
You do not need a referral from a GP to see an osteopath and treatment might be available on your health insurance.
Osteopathy for mums and babies
Gentle osteopathic treatment can make a big difference. We offer pre & postnatal osteopathy for mums to be and their newborns soon after birth.
Constant niggling back pain can develop in pregnancy and linger after the birth a musculo-skeletal check up is always wise to allow the body to realign after postural changes have occurred.
Cranio-sacral therapy is used for adjusting newborns after any long or difficult birth process. Moulding of the skull can be gently released to allow pressures to be reduced. No actual manipulation is used but a soft touch feeling the cerebro-spinal fluid around the brain & spinal cord. The ebb & flow is soothed & monitored.
Check ups are 1 hour for baby & mum. Pregnancy check ups are perfect maintenance to consider for good skeletal positioning for the birth process. Further information can be had by contacting us.
