Babies - Osteopaths can Help
Dr Kingston has a particular interest in treating babies and has been doing so for over 20 years. He received his advanced training at the Osteopathic Centre for Children in London.
Paediatric Osteopathy is exceptionally gentle. We recommend all babies are assessed as soon as possible after birth to ensure that any strains associated with birth and pregnancy can be released.
Many babies simply retain tension within their tissues which is uncomfortable for them. We can help!
Before we ever treat a baby we discuss our findings, objectives and treatment plan with the parents and will only ever progress with your full approval. Dr Kingston does NOT crack, manipulate, use toggle boards or activator instruments as part of his osteopathic approach with babies.
Usually the baby will lay, face up on a pillow or craddled in the parents hands whilst the osteopath will gently seeks a position in which they relax and the accumulated tension or stress in their tissues releases. Treatment is usually very relaxing for a baby and in many cases they sleep through. In some cases a very irritable baby may continue to cry but this usually subsides quickly as they relax.
