What is baby cranial osteopathy?

Cranial Osteopathy for babies & children is a gentle and non-invasive technique that aids the body’s self-healing mechanism to relieve trauma or release tension and stresses in the body and the head that might have been caused during birth.

During labour, the baby’s head moves in specific directions while undergoing a lot of pressure from the contractions. The compressions of the skull are usually relieved naturally as the baby starts crying, however, this process might not be enough to relieve all the compression, especially after a difficult birth, for example a long labour, a caesarean section or forceps delivery.

Cranial osteopathy can help relieve these compressions in a gentle, safe and effective manner.  After assessing your baby, the cranial Osteopath would hold it and carefully and gently apply pressure where necessary to encourage its body to function as it should. After treatment, your baby will probably be very relaxed and will sleep well. To the contrary, some babies tend to have a lot of energy after treatment, but this is usually followed by a good night’s sleep.
