I knew of the clinic following my own treatment from the clinicians and was aware of the Baby Health checks. After what turned out to be a traumatic birth and first two weeks with my son we visited Hilary. She is such a wonderful person, a caring nature and so much knowledge to share. She has so much more time to give than I found I got from the Health Visiting team who were also confusing me too.
The guidance ranged from feeding, to manual handling and general care as he has grown. Following his time in NICU and respiratory concerns and unknown reason for needing the neonatal care Hilary was able to support us with treatment and handling for poor respiratory lung capacity on one side and also a squashed face from delivery meaning his breathing was both noise and intermittently stopping which is fearful itself never mind being a new mum. Hilary was amazing with me too as my worries and anxieties she could see impacted on him. his colic became a sever problem with silent reflux and her guidance helped a lo in those desperate times.
He has grown and developed so well that we have felt as parents more at ease to manage him but also realise that with a little help it can work wonders if you open yourself to a different method of treatment. Attention to detail is something I would say made me feel more confident as a new first time mum and without Hilary I’m not sure we would of had a calmer, happier baby as quickly as we have achieved. Baby whisperer yes and Guardian Angel for parents to receive guidance from was and is something she will never realise helped me as much as it did. I’m truly grateful for the knowledge and time she devotes to children and babies and the advice is invaluable for life.. Thank you doesn’t seem to be sufficient words to say how grateful we are for your input with our son.

Robin is an amazing man with magic hand. Over the years robin has fixed me from foot, knee, back, hand and neck. He’s a lovely man and always know he will fix me.
The receptionist are lovely and very helpful. Thanks for all your hard work.

Can’t recommend Hilary enough!
My son was born with torticollis (tightening of his neck muscle) on the right side which caused him to favour sleeping on his left. This made him develop moderate Plagiocephaly & severe Brachycephaly (flat head syndrome) on his head.
After weekly visits to the amazing Hilary for the last 3 months his torticollis has been corrected.
What I didn’t expect from our visits was all the advice, care and knowledge we received from Hilary to help with my sons development!
She really is the baby whisperer.

Hilary is just amazing! I have seen her numerous times over the last 10 years for a variety of issues from a locked jaw to a trapped nerve to bringing my two baby boys for help as newborns. She has worked miracles every time and after only a few sessions. And to top it all she is a truly caring and all round lovely person! Thank you Hilary!

I would recommend Hilary to all parents. I took my son to see her when we were at rock bottom – symptoms of silent reflux, very unsettled, issues latching etc. At the first consultation Hilary was quickly able to identify his issues and over 4 sessions gently worked on him to resolve the problems. By the end of his treatments, my son was calmer, confidently latched to feed and was an altogether different baby. Thank you Hilary.

Hilary is truly wonderful! We first went to see her when my daughter was a few months old and very unsettled. Hilary immediately helped us to feel at ease and very honestly assessed how she might be able to help us. She worked wonders at that time and I immediately booked an appointment once my son was born last September. Once again she has proved to be invaluable with her work on his umbilical hernia and other issues. We would, and often do, recommend her to everyone. My husband always tells people that she has ‘magic hands’!! Thank you Hilary xx

After reading the reviews I decided to make an appointment for my very unsettled 3 month old. I hoped like other reviewers Hilary would be able to help. Our little girl was extremely unsettled, hated lying down and always seemed uncomfortable. Hilary was fantastic, she quickly identified what may be the cause and we finally felt there may be a glimmer of hope that things could change. Within 3 visits our baby girl is more relaxed, happy and for the first time will settle lying down. Last night she slept through the night in her crib which has never happened before!

Hilary is a magician. It really is as simple as that.

All I can say is that Hilary is amazing! I would recommend her to anyone. I 1st took my daughter Olivia to see Hilary at 11 weeks after she was recommended by a friend. Olivia was very unsettled and would only sleep if she was led on me. I couldn’t lie her down without her crying and we really struggled.
On our first visit to see Hilary she could see straight away how unsettled and unhappy she was. Hilary noticed that Olivia was really stiff on her left side this was causing her pain and was the reason why she had been so unhappy. Over the last 3 months Hilary has worked her magic on her. Olivia really struggled with tummy time as her left side was giving way and was weak. Hilary has given me loads of advice and tips on how to help her, she has helped Olivia so much and I could see a difference after the 1st visit. I would recommend Hilary to anyone. Thanks to her I now have a really happy baby.

Better late than never! I took my 6 month old son to Kendal Clinic as he wasn’t sleeping and had extreme colic. After the first treatment, he slept for 2 hours solid, after the 6th treatment, he was sleeping a good 6 hours a night! Best money I’ve ever spent….I’ve just recommended you to someone. My son is 15 now! As I said…better late than never. Thank you Kendal House.
Diane Withnell 21st July 2017
I would highly recommend Kendal house clinic, Hilary has done an amazing job with my little boy, he couldn’t breath through his nose, had a terrible time with his chest & breathing. Now his breathing & chest has dramatically improved and he can now breath through his nose!! Hilary has changed his life & mine for the better, thank you Hilary

I suffered a trapped nerve in my back and unable to sleep in bed or walk more than 30 feet because of the pain.
Now 5 weeks on with the help of Matt I’m now almost back to normal. Thank you to Matt and the team at Kendal House.

My son has benefited from Hilary’s Cranial osteopathy treatment over numerous years, first used her when he was a little toddler suffering from glue ear till now when he’s a strapping teenager going through yet another growth spurt and a bout of teeth grinding.
I won’t recommend something unless I believe that it is a good service or of benefit and it is just that – fantastic,friendly, caring, hands on treatment.Thank you Hilary and team xx

I’ve just had a wonderful facial and head and shoulders massage from Linda prior to going on holiday. Her treatments are the best, tailored specifically for each client. I’ve been coming to Linda for years and can thoroughly recommend her professional, warm manner and dedication to her work. Thanks again, Linda!

Took my 7 week old daughter for cranial treatment. She spent most of her waking moments fussing and crying. I thought I was going to go insane and feared that my baby would never be happy. I researched osteopathy treatments for babies after reading about it on a forum. I was very skeptical as I’d never heard of it before. Kendal house clinic seemed the right fit, because they offer a free checkup for under 6 month old babies. I went in and Hilary treated my daughter. Hilary was very understanding and so patient, put me right at ease and after the first session I saw a huge difference. She went from sleeping 1 1/2 hours at night to 4 hours straight. The day after she sat in her bouncer so content and even started babbling away! Thank you Hilary! I would definitely recommend Kendal House Clinic to anyone considering treatment.

Robin is amazing a true gent does wonders for my hubby.
Nicki Westray 13th March 2015
Hilary is currently treating my 19 week old twins. Just after one treatment on my son I could see the difference. For the first time he has slept through the night and not struggled to breath. I can’t thank you enough Hilary and would recommend Kendal house clinic to anyone wanting to get their children treated. Thanks again!
Parveen Patel 16th January 2015
When my baby was 7 weeks old she was still jaundiced, vomited after most feeds and screamed for over 3 hours every evening, at the end of my tether I, very skeptically, booked an appointment with Hilary.
Within hours of the second session the jaundice had disappeared, the vomiting stopped and she no longer screamed. We have continued to see Hilary to rectify her “flat head” due to her only being able to look one way for the first 8 weeks.
I was incredibly sceptical as I didn’t understand what cranial osteopathy was but would recommend anybody with a new baby has a free baby health check to ensure your baby is as comfortable as possible!
Beckie Hi 21st February 2014
Would like to say a big thank you to Kendal House Clinics!
Two months ago, I couldn’t walk 100 yards, now I’m walking miles! The Occupation Health Doctor has just given me the all clear to go back to work, I’m ironing my uniform.
Look out Burnley, I’m back!
Christopher Pate 6th January 2014
Highly recommended!! Elbow feeling much better today thank you Robin.
Lisette Bradshaw 30th November 2013
I would recommend Kendal House to anyone. Hilary treated both me & my daughter, she was excellent! Really can’t say anymore. If I ever needed to see an osteopath again, I would only go here.
