A gentle way to give your baby the perfect start in life!
The birth process puts enormous physical pressure on an infant. The baby’s head is compressed and moulded by the delivery. After birth, the bones of the skull begin to re-expand and un-mould so that the head can return to its normal shape. Sometimes this un-moulding process is incomplete due to a difficult or prolonged delivery, and this is where Cranial Osteopathy can help. Cranial Osteopathy is a subtle form of osteopathic treatment that uses very gentle pressure to encourage the release of stresses throughout the head and the rest of the body caused by improper un-moulding. It is called ‘cranial’ because treatment often involves the head, although other parts of the body such as the spine and tailbone can also be involved.
This therapy can help newborns suffering from colic, irritability, sleep difficulties, feeding problems, recurring infections, sinus and dental problems, and asthma.
