Children & Infants

Osteopathy is a gentle and safe treatment for children from Newborns to the teenage years.

Often, but not exclusively, Osteopathic treatment is through cranial techniques: holding the head and sacrum and working through the spinal column to unwind any facial restrictions in the soft-tissues and the dural membranes.

Other physical therapy and osteopathic technique in the treatment of children and infants involves gentle articulation of the body, spine and extremities. Treatment is gentle, safe and non-invasive.

At this present time, I myself do not treat children under the age of five years old.

However, for newborns and infants, and children under five years old, here in Christchurch I can recommend:
