Testimonials:

“Laura is simply amazing and I can’t recomemd her enough! She recently treated my 7weeks old little girl and identified and treated a number of issues caused by her being in a breech positon at week 37. She had such a natural way with my daughter and completely put her (and me) at ease. After 3 sessions we had a much more content, relaxed and less colicky little girl.”

FT – Tooting

“I went to Laura Tilson osteopathy because of pregnancy related back-ache. Laura was brilliant – she diagnosed me within minutes and sorted my back out within 2 sessions. Couldn’t recommend her highly enough. I’ve booked in for a pregnancy massage which they’ve just started offering and I have no doubt it’ll be equally wonderful.”

What is a Cranial Osteopath

Parents bring their babies to see osteopaths with many symptoms including:

  • post-natal check ups
  • digestive issues
  • difficulty sleeping
  • feeding difficulties
  • flat heads

Osteopaths do not treat conditions but are interested in how your baby or child’s body is moving. Osteopathic treatment aims to restore the normal movement in the muscles, ligaments and joints, which in turn can improve how your babies feeds and sleeps. In this way treatment may improve symptoms of a wide range of illness and discomfort.

What to Expect from your Appointment

At your first appointment the osteopath will discuss details of the pregnancy and labour and the child’s general health. Then they will carry out examinations which look at joint movement, reflexes and muscle tone.

Treatment techniques include gentle massage and cranial osteopathy and aim to make the body as relaxed and comfortable as possible. The osteopath may also provide advice on exercises, posture and nutrition.

Initial consultations normally take an hour and any follow up treatments are for half an hour.

Testimonials:

“I took my daughter (9 months) to see Laura as I’d noticed she was very ‘fidgety’ feeding on one side, and only lay on her left in her cot. Laura is fabulous with babies, and after just on session she went home and had a nap on her opposite side for the first time ever! Highly recommended.” – Jen, Balham

“Laura did a few home visits to treat my newborn who was not sleeping or feeding well as he was very stiff in his neck. Laura’s treatment had an immediate positive affect that night. A HUGE relief for all. Laura was great; she took her time to make sure she understood the problems, was thorough examining and very gentle and calming for my baby in her treatment. I’d definitely recommend a home visit as it took the stress out of going out with an unhappy newborn.” – Johanna, Tooting

“I originally went to see Laura as I was worried that my daughter’s head and shoulders movement. Turns out that my daughter was absolutely fine but I booked myself in for a post natal check as I’m training for a marathon. Since then I’ve been having fortnightly sports related osteopathy/ massage sessions with Tali (based at the same clinic) and she has been absolutely fantastic, helping to loosen my tight achy muscles and preparing me for more training!” – Emma, Clapham

“I went to see Laura with lower back pain during my pregnancy. She was brilliant and really worked hard to get to the root of the problem, work on it and set me up with exercises to keep me on the right tra

Tongue-Tie

Katherine has extensive experience and training in carrying out Frenulotomies – both within the NHS and in private practice. She was trained at both Southampton General Hospital, and Kings College Hospital where she currently works  as the Team Leader of a large NHS Tongue-tie service. She continues to participate in continuous clinical governance, access to ongoing professional development, and training. She has full medical indemnity insurance for both Lactation Consultancy and Frenulotomy. Katherine accepts referrals from midwives; health visitors; Lactation Consultants (IBCLC); accredited Breastfeeding counsellors (NCT, Breastfeeding Network, LLL and ABM) and GPs. Parents can of course self-refer.

We treat babies aged eight days to 26 weeks who have a condition called tongue-tie. This means they have a tight piece of skin between the underside of their tongue and the floor of their mouth that makes it difficult for them to breastfeed.

We carry out a small operation which releases their tongue and allows them to latch on and breastfeed properly. We treat tongue-tie in infants aged eight days to 26 weeks that is causing breastfeeding difficulties.

Patients must be prepared correctly. Please follow the checklist on our referral forms if you book an appointment.

We do not treat babies:

  • with teeth
  • that are exclusively bottle-fed
  • for speech problems.
