Experienced and qualified specialists in Cranial Osteopathy and Osteopathy for Children

Cranial Osteopathy is a form of gentle osteopathic treatment that can be used to create patients of all ages and all walks of life, including newborn babies. All our paediatric osteopaths have extensive training from the Osteopathic Centre for Children, UK.

Delicate, hands-on treatment to soothe, heal and relax.

Our qualified cranial osteopaths use gentle manual techniques to release deep-seated tension from the whole body.

Because it is so soft, we often use Cranial Osteopathy to treat patients who are vulnerable due to age or illness. It is also an effective way to promote soothing and relaxation in babies, helping with aches, pains, and feeding issues.

But contrary to what you may have heard, cranial osteopathy is not just for infants or people who are frail. Nor is it limited to the head. In fact, cranial osteopathy offers an effective treatment for a variety of bodily problems in people of all ages.

Mum & Baby Postpartum Care

Our Holistic Postpartum care is a time for restoration and rebalance for both you and your child.

Using gentle osteopathic techniques, we help relieve the stresses and strains on your body after birth. These delicate treatments also help soothe and relax your child, and may relieve aches, pains, and digestive problems.

Alongside physical aches and pains, we understand that many new mums experience feelings of exhaustion, overwhelm and even sadness after birth. Our cranial osteopaths are here to support you and your baby with kindness and care, offering advice, tools and gentle manual therapy to restore your body’s natural balance.

Maria offers a two-hour appointment to help with infant feeding issues, such as latching and pain during breastfeeding or bottle-feeding.

What our patients say

I had a few appointments with Joshua. He was amazing. Was so easy to talk to and made me feel very relaxed and comfortable. The techniques he used were very effective and the advice he has given me has been working wonders for my backpain. Highly recommend.

Justin is a brilliant and intuitive therapist. I only have good things to say about him. I’ve been seeing Justin for 6 years for a mix of Cranial and osteopathy, every time I leave the session feeling happy, aligned, and in complete bliss. It is truly transformative.

Ellie B

It was a genuine pleasure to attend Butterfield Osteopathy and to meet Maria. She has a wealth of knowledge about not only the human body as an interconnected system but also how it relates to the world at large. I find it helpful with her approach of a combination of direct and indirect work. Thanks, Maria!

I felt hugely helped and exceptionally cared for by Justin who I saw with acute lower back pain. I am so glad to have discovered this excellent local practice and am sure to book further appointments.
