Top Breastfeeding Tips

Sunday, December 16, 2012


Breastfeeding can be a stressful time for new mums, but there are steps you can take to make it easier for yourself and your baby:


  • Massage your breasts when you can. This reduces the sodium content of the milk, making it taste nicer for bub. It also reduces the chances of mastitis
  • Babies feed best when they have just woken up and are calm, so try if you can to feed them before they start crying to be fed. Look for little cues, like tongue thrusting and lip smacking.
  • Very young babies will push their head back if pressure is put on the back of their head . So, bring their body in close to yours when you try to feed, but instead of pushing against the back of their heads to guide them on to the boob, try putting your hand under their cheek and supporting their head that way. This will give them the freedom to move their head and neck in to the most comfortable and efficient position to feed .

If you have any questions about any of these tips, please call Sharon on 9907 8919

Cranial Osteopathy Explained

Thursday, November 01, 2012

Cranial Osteopaths are trained to feel a very subtle, rhythmical shape change that is present in all body tissues  and use very gentle guiding pressure to encourage the release of stresses throughout the body, including the head. It is extremely effective in treating a wide range of conditions in people of all ages.

'Cranial Osteopath' are Osteopaths who practise a gentler, more subtle approach to therapy.  Cranial Osteopathy treatment is safe and pain free. One of its most common benefits is that the treatment is so gentle that it often has a soporific effect, whilst tissue and tensions are relaxing. This makes it an ideal treatment for newborns, children and pregnant mothers.

Cranial Osteopathy Can Treat:

Paediatric issues

Pregnancy Symptoms

Joint pain

Back and neck pain

Headache and migraine

Digestive disorders

Period pain and irregularity

Recurrent infection


Asthma and chest complaints

Stress, depression, and fatigue

General ill health


What are the added benefits of treatment?

Osteopathic treatment can not only relieve symptoms and pain. Many patients feel an improvement in general well-being, energy levels, sleep patterns, and with symptoms that the patient did not originally come to their practitioner for.
