Osteopathy for Babies

Babies experience rapid growth in the first few weeks and months of life which can cause soft tissue tension, tight muscles and cramping. During an osteopathic consultation the baby’s head is examined for asymmetry, misalignment of cranial bones (causing ridges between the bones), and muscular tension at the base of the skull and in the rest of the body. The osteopath’s skilled hands are seeking to help the baby find its centre of equilibrium and a state of balanced tissue tension in all parts of the body.
