The Family Osteopath’s, Baby & Children Osteopathy Practice (B.C.O.P) enters its 15th year!

The health of our youngest is an essential part of my cranial osteopathy work and a passion of mine. I welcome all families to contact me to discuss their children's health and wellbeing needs? This is especially important in these COVID 19 times where a lot of angst and health concerns are showing up in our children - for babies it can be a sense of general unsettledness, colic, sleep, and reflux issues, for our older children tummy aches and behavior anomalies are seeping through.  Help is available, lets talk?

Treatment and assessment are by myself, Ben Court, registered Osteopath and cranial specialist.

“I want to prevent and treat the issues that I see so often in babies & children who have not had some cranial help and support after birth and beyond”.

Cranial Osteopaths strongly believe it’s Normal for babies & children to:

  • Cry only for communication when they need to feed/sleep/change etc
  • Be settled
  • Be comfortable on their backs
  • Be contented and to sleep well
  • Be able to feed and latch without issues and with no reflux or vomiting
  • Be in 100% alignment avoiding bodily strains/pains and preventing flat head syndrome (plagiocephally) and other physical issues in later life (as the twig is bent so grows the tree)!
  • Be free from congested eyes and constant colds
  • Be happy and relaxed
  • Be free from tummy pains or headaches
  • Be free from stressful and emotional upset including behaviour issues
  • Be free from growing pains
  • Be well aligned with good posture

“I simply believe that Cranial Osteopathy offers you the best opportunity to ensure your
babies and children are fulfilling their 100% health/life potential, as the OCC say – every child is a success story waiting to happen and this is best achieved by them being free from the strains of birth and life knocks that happen inevitably along the way whether they be physical, emotional or chemical in nature”

Ben Court – registered osteopath.

I want to book my child in how is this done?

We have many Health Visitors, GP’s, and other healthcare professionals including; birthing partners, midwives, lactation consultants, etc who refer babies and children to us (often older children are referred by schools and education psychologists etc), but a formal referral is not necessary.

Initial assessment & treatment is £65 with follow up treatment sessions costing £45.

Clinic Address: The Family Osteopath, 11 High St, Fairford, GL7 4AD.
