Osteopathy – Just for Children was born out of a wish to provide your babies and children with their bodies functioning at their own optimum. Bodies functioning like this may make for happier and healthier children following into adulthood.
If the mechanical strains of childbirth, large bumps or severe illnesses alter the mechanics of the body, staying with us, it may alter our health.

When osteopaths examine babies, areas of tension are often found in the spine or head which are indications that the baby or child is uncomfortable. A baby may express their discomfort by crying and being unsettled or irritable. In a research study conducted by Clive Hayden into the effects of cranial osteopathic treatment on babies, some parents perceived the following changes in their childs behaviour, reduced crying, improved sleep, less unsettled irritable behaviour and increased quiet happy spells. Hilary set up Saturday clinics for children to allow children of school age to come from further a field (Glossop, the Fylde etc.).
