Osteopathy for Babies, Matlock, Derbyshire

Freeing your Baby’s Health

Many people don’t realise the work that some osteopaths do with babies. But mums and midwives who have experienced it know just how effective it can be.

Mechanical effects from the birth process can leave rotational and compressive strains in the body of the newborn and in the developing child. Releasing strains in a baby or child’s body can make a huge difference. People who do this work know that correcting physical issues in a young life can completely change how the individual grows, develops and expresses his or her personality.

As they used to say at the Osteopathic Centre for Children – “As the twig bends, so grows the tree”.

The symptoms below are common results from such strains.

  • Baby reflux
  • Sleeping Disorder
  • Miserable Baby
  • Feeding Difficulties/Poor latch
  • Colicky Symptoms
  • Constipation
  • Traumatic Birth

Jonathan has many decades of experience treating babies with very gentle Cranial Osteopathy and Craniosacral techniques. Having established his skills when working as a volunteer at the Osteopathic Centre for Children when it was on Harley Street in London, he went on to treat hundreds of pregnant mums and their new borns when in his busy practice in Prestwich, Manchester. He received continual recommendations from midwives and from a highly respected Jewish doula in the area.

Parents who have had treatment for their first baby usually come back when they are pregnant again, both for themselves and for their next little one!
