"As the twig is bent, so grows the tree"
William Garner Sutherland (1873 - 1954) Founder of Cranial Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a gentle treatment suitable for children and babies.

Cranial techniques are safe, gentle and non manipulative. They are often used when treating young children and newborn infants.

Babies skeletons are softer than an adult's and so osteopathy will there use gentler techniques such as cranial osteopathy when treating babies.

Gentle manipulation could help soothe and relax your baby.

Osteopaths are qualified to work with babies and children.


Children can sometimes develop problems arising from accidents while learning to crawl, walk and run. Having your child checked out by an Osteopath can sometimes stop problems arising during future development.


Osteopathic techniques are suitable for children at all stages of development; I will assess your child to see what might help.

Some children can find education unsettling for many reasons and develop problems including stress and lack of concentration, which results in poor sleep.

Also they can develop problems from normal growing such as poor posture or hurting themselves while playing and learning. Increased sporting activity and sport related injuries can also cause problems. An injury such as a sprained ankle for example can lead to the whole body to compensate for a limp.

Teenagers can often be helped from Osteopathy for issues like postural fatigue, anxiety/stress, headaches, hormonal changes, amongst other things.

Absolutely amazing!! I had used Will in the past whilst pregnant with my first and after birth due to twisted pelvis, however yesterday I took my 5 week old daughter to see him as she appeared to be in discomfort since being born via C-section. Before seeing Will my little girl was grumpy, unsettle, unable to be placed on back or in a chair without screaming and had never smiled. Within seconds of Will working his magic I had a new baby!! She was smiling and her face became relaxed instantly. When we got home she had a nap and went down on her back (I had previously only been able to put her belly), she napped happily for 5 hours which has never happened! She is a lot more content and my husband, son and I can finally enjoy spending time with our little pink bundle! I can't thank him enough for helping her, you truly are a star.
