We offer a range of treatments designed for pregnancy, post natal women and mothers and babies. These treatments include pregnancy massage (or prenatal massage), postnatal massage, postnatal osteopathy and cranial osteopathy.
Our prenatal massage is ideal for helping with lower back pain, pelvic pain, muscle aches & pains and headaches. We can also help with examination of the pelvic floor and offer advice and exercises to strengthen these crucial muscles in a safe and suitable way during pregnancy.
How do we do this?
We use a pregnancy pillow, allowing you to lie on your front to alleviate pressure on the lower back and pelvis. These harmonic techniques mobilise the spine and reduce muscle tension, creating long lasting benefits once you’re back to your day to day routine.

Postnatal osteopathy & massage
Help dealing with birth trauma
If you have been through a traumatic birthing experience, please discuss this with your practitioner so that they can recommend the best corrective treatment for you.
Mother & baby treatments
The mum and baby treatment is specially to offer a booster for mum and baby after birth. The treatment uses half the time for the mother and half for the baby during which your therapist can:
- release any tension
- make spinal corrections
- help to improve feeding and digestion
- give additional support on any areas of concerns
If the baby has particular symptoms then we would recommend a full appointment for them focused on cranial osteopathy.
Our mother and baby sessions last for one hour.
Cranial osteopathy for babies
We offer cranial osteopathy just for babies as well as treatments for their mums. Common reasons for babies to have osteopathic treatment include:
- Difficulties feeding
- Latching problems
- Tongue tie
- Sleeping difficulties
- Birth trauma
- Trapped wind/Constipation
The first appointment will last 45 minutes and include plenty of opportunity for you to share any problems or concerns that you may have.
Subsequent appointments are for 30 minutes.
