What is Cranial Osteopathy
Osteopathic techniques are extremely powerful in the treatment of babies and children. Babies and children respond more quickly than adults and the benefit of a few treatments can be game changing.
Most of the time, the baby is born perfect and there is no need for osteopathic care. But if something did go wrong, gentle yet powerful osteopathic techniques allow the little body to overcome its malfunction or shock.
A mum of two children herself, Jane knows how it feels when your baby doesn't sleep well, acts crotchety and unsettled for no obvious reason or appears to have an uncomfortable stomach. Sometimes the cause of these and other problems is due to the way the baby's body formed in the womb or by the birth process, where the baby is naturally pushed by powerful muscles through a narrow passage within the vagina or when birth is intervened upon with forceps, ventouse or caesarian section.

Jane Reynolds, osteopath, has been treating babies for more than two decades, with cranial osteopathy.
Cranial osteopathy is concerned with the arrangements of the parts of the body and their movements. This arrangement is formed in embryo, the foetus in the womb and is also affected by the birth process, where the baby is naturally pushed by powerful muscles through a narrow passage within the vagina.
The use of forceps, ventouse or caesarean section can shock or distort the new system. I try to understand what has gone wrong and why, and use very gentle yet powerful osteopathic techniques to allow the little body to overcome its malfunction. Mechanical disorders have a profound effect on the functioning of all body systems, and are important to encourage optimum health for a lifetime.
Osteopathic techniques are also extremely powerful in the treatment of children and adolescents. These young people will respond much more quickly and better than adults and the benefit to them of a few treatments can be game changing. The most common conditions Jane treats in young people are back pain, headaches, neck pain, hip pain, knee pain, foot or ankle pain and discomfort associated with asthma.
