Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a gentle and effective hands-on approach to healthcare, based on the principle that the way your body moves influences how it functions. Osteopaths are highly competent healthcare professionals, recognised by the NHS as fully qualified to diagnose and treat independently.

Over 30,000 people every day visit an osteopath suffering from a variety of conditions including neck or back pain, joint or muscular pain, sports injuries, recurring headaches and more. Many patients are pregnant mothers, unsettled children, or those with work strain, or pain and stiffness related to advancing years.

As you don’t need a referral from your doctor to see an osteopath, you will typically be able to see an osteopath quickly, without the long waiting times that often occur with other treatment options.

Osteopathy for Mother & Baby

Nargis is recommended by Mums locally for the treatment of babies, seeing many women when pregnant and post-natal. If you are not sleeping comfortably at night you need to book in to see Nargis, osteopathy could help.

She relieves general aches and pains caused by pregnancy, including joint and back pain. Using gentle osteopathic techniques that balance the pelvis and hips, releases tension and so improves sleep and well-being.

Cranial Osteopathy for Babies

Cranial Osteopathy is a very safe, and non-invasive therapy. It’s suitable for all babies as Cranial treatment works with the babies’ natural instinct to thrive.

Nargis has previously helped babies…

  • Suffering from abdominal pain and wind
  • Turning to one side
  • Struggling with a blocked nose and chesty breathing
  • Affected by other conditions – often following a referral from a local health professional

Nargis recommends a course of treatments for best results and reviews the progress, treatment aims and expected outcome with the parents within each session.

What mothers say when their baby is treated

Cranial osteopathy is a very safe, non-invasive and gentle treatment suitable for babies and children.
