Vicki is a qualified, registered osteopath who has training and experience in working with patients, including pregnant women, babies and children, suffering from a variety of complaints such as headaches, back pain, whiplash, joint pain and sciatica.
Osteopathy is very gentle, safe & effective in the treatment of birth trauma. Specific gentle pressure is applied where necessary to enable the baby’s head and body to release the stresses held from the birth process. The holistic approach of osteopathy not only influences the body but also the emotions and happiness of the child and of their parents. It allows the whole body to relax resulting in the child being calmer and less restless making for a better nights sleep for the child and the parents and overall, helping your baby grow into a healthy child and, ultimately, a healthy young adult.
By incorporating techniques such as soft tissue massage, stretching, myofascial release, spinal manipulation, balance ligamentous tension, cranial osteopathy, dry needling and exercises, Vicki can adapt her treatment to best suit the individual client overall helping to improve the body’s functional capacity and self healing properties.
