Cranial Osteopathy for Babies, Children & Pregnancy | Stroud

Cranial Osteopathy for Children | Nuno Bento | Osteopath Stroud | Gloucestershire

I believe periodic treatment of all children is beneficial in maintaining healthy growth and development.

The Children’s clinic offers specialised and affordable treatment for children from birth through their growth and development up to the age of sixteen, and to parents during and after pregnancy.

Treatment for Children, and During Pregnancy, is provided at a reduced cost to encourage patients to come in and enjoy the benefits at these important and dynamic times.

The cranial approach to treatment is very gentle, effective and ideally suited to caring for babies, children, pregnant and post natal women.

Children’s Clinic

The clinic has an informal, child-friendly atmosphere with toys and books available. For further information please come in to see my range of leaflets.

The children’s clinic is run along side my normal clinic. The same hours and clinic room is used; the only difference is the concessionary rate. Please choose a ‘Child/Pregnant Appointment’ when booking.

What to expect during your visit

First a case history is taken where you will be asked in detail about the pregnancy and birth, as appropriate.

Children are treated whilst they play on the floor, sit on a parent’s lap with a story, or lying on the treatment couch. I will gently place my hands on one or more parts of the  body.

What to Bring

It is often helpful for parents to bring in a favourite toy or book, a copy of the child’s birth notes and red book (if you have them).

Sensitive Information

If there is any sensitive information you would prefer not to have to drag your child through during the case history, you can email it to me before you come in.

Alternatively you can also come in to do the case history on your own, on a separate day, before you bring your child for treatment (please call me when booking your appointment to arrange this).
