Osteopathic Treatment for your Baby (under 12 months old)

Let’s find some answers

Are you struggling to survive colic?

Do you feel helpless to help your baby sleep or eat properly?

Are you worried that your baby is in pain?

Do you look at other people’s babies and wonder why your lovely little one is so ‘difficult’?baby-having-cranial-osteopathy-treatment

Being a parent can be really hard.

We are expected to know intuitively what our new baby needs as soon as they enter our lives. But as the amount of ‘how to’ books on looking after babies shows, it is not a straight and easy path and every baby is different.


Osteopathy treats each and every baby differently.

We diagnose and treat the root cause of your baby’s  symptoms to explain why your baby is having difficulties and how osteopathy can help them to grow.

  • We don’t use blanket and dismissive terms such as ‘colic’
  • We often are able to give an answer to why your little one is in pain and crying
  • And if the problem lies outside of our expertise, we will tell you and help you to get the treatment your baby needs.

How can Osteopathy help my baby?

Osteopathy is a holistic approach to treating your body’s symptoms. We make sure that everything is working properly so that the body can heal and grow the way it is supposed to. We see hundreds of babies every year that are struggling with the effects of a difficult birth or that just haven’t completely adjusted afterwards and can be living with some very uncomfortable stresses and strains within their body.

A course of treatment can often alleviate stresses on the nerves, muscles and delicate bones of the skull to help babies to grow free of pain and discomfort.

When will I notice a change?

Your baby will react in different ways to treatment. Often they are very relaxed afterwards and sleep well. Others have a burst of energy after treatment, usually followed by a good night’s sleep. Occasionally the child may seem unsettled and this is merely because treatment may take a few hours or days to complete. Depending on the problem, treatment is usually completed within 2 to 6 visits.
