How does Osteopathy for babies work?
Osteopaths work different techniques to diagnose medical conditions and allow the body to heal itself using its own healing mechanisms. It is a completely natural therapy, which identifies and treats mobility restrictions. By working on the integral structure of the body, and looking at how bones, muscles and connective tissues work together, osteopathy will restore your baby’s body to a balance. The patient is assessed from a functional and postural angle, treating the body as a whole structure. Osteopathy is a holistic approach, which focuses on the root of the problems rather than fixing the consequences.

Baby Osteopathy at home in London or at the practice
For mothers with a busy schedule or who do not wish to travel with their baby, our osteopath offers baby treatment at home in London, but if you prefer for your baby to be seen at the practice our osteopath consults at the Light Centre Belgravia near Victoria station or in our practice in Clapham between Clapham South and Clapham Common.
Different treatment techniques used by our osteopath for babies in London are:
- Baby myofascial release osteopathy which uses a constant pressure until release is achieved. It is primarily used for myofascial structures.
- Baby cranial osteopathy and cranio sacral osteopathy which uses light touch to feel and ‘listen’ to your body, similar to when the medical historic is taken. Contacts are made at the base of the spine, the head, as well as other areas depending on the symptoms.
- Baby soft tissue osteopathy or manipulations which is a manual technique used to stretch or relax dysfunctional soft tissue structures.
- Baby visceral osteopathy technique Our visceral organs form an important part of our anatomy and physiology, making them a significant consideration when formulating an osteopathic diagnosis and treatment plan. The holistic approach to osteopathy emphasises this. This is usually preformed through a gentle external massage often on the abdomen.
