Cheadle Osteopathy – Specialist Paediatric, Cranial Osteopath
North Cheshire, Manchester, Stockport
Babies’ skeletons are much softer than adults so we use Cranial Osteopathy to treat them.
The belief is that by using very gentle pressures on the head and body may help to soothe your baby, helping them to feel more relaxed and contented.
Cranial osteopathy for babies and children is safe, non-invasive and does not hurt. It is extremely gentle. Parents can hold, feed, talk to and even play with children during the session if they wish to. The important thing is to keep the baby/child happy and relaxed… and the parents too!
“We have taken both our sons to see Gemma for various things. We have seen a difference in the boys after treatments – or have been told how many sessions to expect improvement in. It is the first time we have used an Osteopath and thanks to Gemma’s honest and welcoming approach we feel included in the sessions and our questions are well answered, nothing is too much. We also like the online appointment making system. ”
G. Grossman, Manchester
For older children
Cranial Osteopathy can be enjoyed by people of all ages, not just babies.
An occasional check up with a Paediatric Osteopath may be helpful in alleviating any aches and pains, following bumps and falls or minor sports injuries.
The soothing, calming and relaxing nature of the treatment can help them to feel more comfortable and relaxed.
Check-ups before and after birth
An osteopathic assessment after birth can assess and release any stresses and strains within your body as a result of the pregnancy, labour or from caring for a new born.
