At The Health Formula, we provide soothing and non-invasive treatment for babies and children using gentle soft-tissue and joint articulatory techniques and craniosacral therapy. We consider all aspects of health and development when assessing and treating our young patients.
The birth experience may leave many babies with underlying pain and the stress of this can cause colic, difficulty feeding, sleep problems and other issues. Cranial Osteopathy is the name given to a subtle and refined approach to Osteopathy that uses a highly developed sense of touch to feel subtle changes of tension and strain in the head, neck and throughout the body. Very gentle techniques are used to support the re-balancing and release of these areas of dysfunction.
