OSTEOPATHY FOR MOTHERS:
A mother has to adapt to carrying 20lbs of baby, water and placenta during the pregnancy and this can put a great physical strain on the body.
Osteopathic treatment can help during the pregnancy in several ways:
- Helping the body cope with the increasing weight of the baby and fluid.
- Preparing her for the demands of labour.
- Assisting the mother’s recovery after the pregnancy and delivery.
Helping reduce strain on the spine and pelvis, particularly during the first few weeks after the baby is born, due to the unaccustomed lifting and carrying a new baby.
CRANIAL OSTEOPATHY FOR INFANTS & CHILDREN:
Jane O'Connor is a member of The Sutherland Society
Cranial osteopathy is a refined and subtle type of osteopathic treatment that encourages the release of stresses and tensions throughout the body, including the head. It is a gentle approach and may be used in a wide range of conditions.
Cranial Osteopathy is sometimes referred to as Craniosacral or Cranio sacral therapy.
