Release The Tension In Your Babies' Movement With Our Osteopaths For Infants Fulham 

Baby's Grasp

Birth is an important event for both the baby and the mother. Babies are subjected to various forces and stressors during pregnancy and delivery. Even though their bodies are soft and adaptable, they are vulnerable to mechanical strains from difficult birth.


Babies of all ages are prone to strains and alignment issues in their bodies due to falls, illnesses, bumps, and growth spurts. 


Our Osteopaths here at La Dolce Studio strive to realign their bodies to keep them pain-free and balanced and to ensure optimal physical function as they grow.

What Is Osteopathy?

Osteopathic medicine is founded on the premise that all body systems are interconnected. Osteopaths treat the body as a whole. They devise various treatments, such as individual exercise routines, relaxation techniques, or body awareness sessions that teach you how to move your body in a more gentle technique.


According to osteopathic philosophy, when the body's musculoskeletal system is not properly aligned, it inhibits circulatory, lymphatic, or nervous system function, reducing the body's ability to heal itself.


Does osteopathy work for infants? Is it safe?


Yes! Osteopathy for babies aids in the release of physical tension, the resolution of movement issues, the promotion of body symmetry, and the promotion of optimal physical function in newborns. Though there are different types, Cranial Osteopathy is the best and safest way for babies. 


Cranial osteopathy is a gentle, holistic approach that gets to the root of the problem. The goal is to alleviate any tensions that may have arisen during pregnancy and delivery and restore proper body balance and alignment to optimise the health and well-being of the baby.


The Osteopath will re-balance the baby's entire body (skull, spine, abdomen, pelvis, lower and upper limbs) with gentle and appropriate techniques. It can also release tension around the mouth (jaw, throat, soft palate) to allow your baby to breastfeed and bottle feed easily if having difficulty.

Benefits Of Osteopathy For Infants

Parents bring their babies to an osteopath for a variety of reasons, but the most common is to reap the following benefits:

Improve Your Baby's Sleep

Babies require a lot of sleep, especially during their first year. This is because adequate sleep promotes growth and development. According to reliable research, by the age of six months, babies have doubled their weight. This is caused by somatotropin, a sleep-related hormone active while babies sleep. 


Cranial osteopathy seeks to improve the infant's mental, physical, intellectual, and emotional health. All of the factors mentioned above have an impact on sleep. For example, sleep and mental health are inextricably linked. Individuals suffering from mental illnesses are more likely to suffer from sleep disorders such as insomnia.


Sleep deprivation is a condition that most people experience throughout their lives. While most of us can recover, the phenomenon is dangerous for babies because they are more vulnerable and, thus, more likely to have severe consequences. Remember that babies who get a good night's sleep learn and remember new things faster. 


Physical pain in the body can also interfere with sleep. Massage relaxes the muscles, tissues, and joints of a baby's body. Muscle relaxation is a tried and true method for improving sleep. CST allows a baby to achieve balance in all their body muscles, allowing for uninterrupted and adequate sleep.

Aids In Proper Development

Pediatric osteopaths can also monitor your baby's development and ensure that everything is on track. Physical limitations can impede the development of many toddlers' bones, muscles, and joints.


As a result, key developmental milestones such as crawling, standing, and even walking may be delayed. Osteopaths will do everything possible to ensure that your baby's body develops symmetrically and that all milestones are met on time.

Enhances Digestion

Infants frequently experience reflux caused by tensions in the neck, diaphragm, and other areas of the body. It can be upsetting because it interferes with feeding. Cranial osteopathy ensures that all of the muscles in the body are in a relaxed state. 


The majority of digestion problems in babies are caused by nerve damage. The vagus nerve, for example, is an important factor in digestion. This nerve can be damaged during birth due to pressure applied to the baby. 


An osteopath resolves the problem by massaging the vagus nerve, restoring the necessary communication. This causes the diaphragm and the entire digestive system to relax. The gut can become irritated as a baby twists, squeezes, and turns during birth, causing discomfort, constipation, and nausea. 

CST is a non-medicinal, gentle procedure that resolves this issue in minutes. A pediatric study found that cranial osteopathy improved gastrointestinal function in 72% of 400 premature babies.

  • Can osteopathy treat my recurring migraine?
    Various factors can cause migraines. Through osteopathy, we can identify the root cause of your migraine and resolve it. Osteopathy relieves muscular spasms and stress in the body by using hands-on therapy. It will facilitate the body's natural healing process to allow improved mobility and enhanced drainage of bodily fluids for your migraine to be gone for good.
  • How many sessions do I need to get treated?
    The number of sessions you need to get fully treated varies depending on your body’s condition. It can also vary depending on how cooperative you are in getting the treatment done right.
