Cranial osteopathy for mother and baby

What is cranial osteopathy?

Cranial Osteopathy is a gentle, safe and effective form of treatment focusing on the ‘release’ of stress and strains from all parts of the body. It is used to treat a variety of conditions notably those caused by the build up of tension within the body, especially after child birth.

Cranial Osteopathy may also be used to treat adults, however is particularly successful in the treatment of babies and children. Very specific, skilled light pressure is applied to assist the natural ability of the body to release strains. Even a normal birth can be stressful as the baby is squeezed through the birth canal.

Some babies have a more difficult time, particularly if the labour is prolonged, the baby is positioned awkwardly in the birth canal or secondary intervention is used to assist the birthing process, such as Ventouse, Forceps, Episiotomy.
