I’m so excited that The Family Osteopath’s, Baby & Children Osteopathy Practice (B.C.O.P) is open in Cheltenham after 12 years!
A pioneering effort to make our essential cranial osteopathy work in Cheltenham for all families for their babies and children up to 9yrs old with older children welcome of all ages too. This provides much needed community support for all families.
Treatment and assessment is by myself Ben Court registered Osteopath and cranial specialist.
Cranial Osteopaths strongly believe it’s Normal for babies & children to:
Cry only for communication when they need to feed/sleep/change etc
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 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, but a formal referral is not necessary.
Initial assessment & treatment of up to 60mins is just £62 with follow up treatment sessions of c.20mins each at £42.
We have spaces available for up to 6 families per week, treated on a first come first serve basis.
Clinic address: 199 Bath Road, Cheltenham, GL53 7LZ The practice is shared with The Cheltenham Clinic of Acupuncture and Chiropractic.
Making a booking:
- The Clinic is open in Cheltenham Tuesday afternoons (2-6pm) and all appointments are given on a first come first served basis. Sadly we are not able to offer a walk in service so all appointments must be made before hand.
- You must complete your online questionnaire before hand by clicking here?
To make an appointment please email me directly email@example.com confirming that you have completed the form above. Please note we have a strict no show fee of £50 for any appointments cancelled with less than 24hrs notice, this is to allow for the waiting list to be contacted so others can use your place.
- You will need to complete a progress report (tbc) over the treatment sessions and then a completion questionnaire detailing the results cranial osteopathy has given your child. This is to gather the necessary and quality research needed to better train and understand osteopathy in the cranial field for the future (a process first started by W.G.Sutherland D.O in 1929
Thats it, I really look forward to seeing and helping you all soon.
