Why is my baby crying?
Cranio-Sacral techniques are extremely powerful in the treatment of babies and children. Babies respond very quickly, and the benefit of a small number of 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 off piste, such as a caesarian, forceps, ventouse, premature birth or problems with feeding, gentle yet powerful osteopathic techniques allow the little body to overcome its malfunction or shock and return to optimal health.
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 or when birth is intervened upon with forceps, ventouse or caesarian section.
Pain, Agitation and Discomfort in Babies

Jane Reynolds, osteopath, has been treating babies for more than two decades, with cranial osteopathy and cranio-sacral therapy.
The techniques used are concerned with the arrangements of the parts of the body, their movements and the nervous system. The Blueprint of each baby is within its embryo and this grows to become the foetus in the womb.
During the natural, vaginal, birth process, where the baby is pushed by powerful muscles through a narrow passage within the vagina, this delicate formation can be affected and sometimes disturbed.
The use of forceps, ventouse or caesarean section can shock or distort the new system. Mechanical disorders have a profound effect on the functioning of all body systems, and are important to encourage optimum health for a lifetime.
We start with you filling out a detailed case history, giving information about pregnancy, birth and the first weeks or months of your babies life. Jane will ask about suckling issues, reflexes, hiccups, yawns, babies poo, wind and vomit. Once she has understood the history, Jane uses very gentle yet powerful osteopathic techniques to allow the little body to overcome its malfunction. You should see changes after one to four treatments depending on the severity of the issue.
