Osteopathy for babies can be done as soon as the first day of birth and all along their development. Osteopathy alleviates discomfort or functional problems and re-establishes mobility and vitality.
The technics are soft and include gentle pressure and light stretcing applied to the spinal column, pelvis, cranium and organs.
These technics are based on an indepth knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the body.
Quite often a new born baby presents with plagiocephaly where the head is slightly mishapen and asymmetric and this could lead to functional problems later on.
Conditions to consult an osteopath
