Osteopathy for Infants, Babies & Children
Babies can experience a variety of medical problems as early on as their birth. These problems can be caused by a long and difficult delivery but pregnancy can also be a source of discomfort for the child.
Osteopathic techniques on babies are very gentle, painless and do not involve any constraints on the body. They may not be visibly apparent. A very light pressure from the fingers is applied to unblock tensions.
It is essential to understand natural human movement development after birth. A child’s movement of crawling, rolling, standing, walking, crouching, and getting up when they are in early development is not taught. These are natural movements that are made from our Neuromuscular system.
