Osteopathy for Babies
Resolving discomfort in newborns.
It’s commonly thought that babies and children should be free of physical stressors because of their age. But complications at birth can mean that the reality is different.
If childbirth is particularly long or even very urgent and fast, babies might not fully resolve the stress held in their body. Cranial osteopathy is a gentle, effective solution to release it.
Why Do Babies Carry Stress?
Babies endure enormous forces as the womb contracts to deliver them against the natural resistance of the birth canal.
As a result, many babies are born with odd shaped heads, especially if forceps or ventouse were used. Normally this moulding releases over the first few days of life. For some though, a degree of stress remains.
When babies go through a traumatic birth, their young bodies and minds can harbour varying degrees of anxiety or a sense of being ‘unsettled’.
Our caring osteopaths work with both mum and baby to gently assess, then address, any concerns or tissue blocks to restore physical and psychological wellbeing.
