Babies & Children

“After realising that our 8 week old baby only looked in one direction we visited Haslemere Chiropractic Clinic. After a couple of treatments our daughter had discovered a whole new world and seemed so much more relaxed. The tension and stress that had been there since birth had been relieved”

“On the suggestion of the Health Visitor I brought my 1 year old daughter in to the Haslemere Chiropractic Clinic for some treatment. After only a few chiropractic sessions she was noticeably better and we haven’t looked back since! I would recommend it to anyone!”

“I brought my 8 week old baby for chiropractic treatment…… Even after the first session he was much better – like a different baby”

About Chiropractic Care for Babies & Children

Child Neck Palpation

People are often surprised that babies and children may receive chiropractic care.

Chiropractic care for children includes a combination of gentle techniques applied to the spine and limbs, and soft tissue work to relieve areas of tension. In addition, cranial work may be used.

Many Midwives and Health Visitors are familiar with chiropractic care / cranio-sacral therapy for babies and children, and may suggest this approach.

Babies & Children at Haslemere Chiropractic

Michelle Carrington and Daniela Carini are our practitioners with a special interest in babies and children. Both are experienced chiropractors with post graduate training in paediatric care, and mums who appreciate the ups and downs of being a parent!  In addition to being a chiropractor, Michelle is also a qualified cranio-sacral therapist. Daniela utilises cranial techniques learnt through her study of Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT).

At Haslemere Chiropractic Clinic we strongly believe that children should be able to understand a simple explanation about the chiropractor’s findings and recommendations, and that their visits are a comfortable and enjoyable experience for everyone.

All babies and toddlers who are booked in with Michelle will receive a blend of chiropractic care and cranio-sacral therapy. With teenage children of her own, Michelle is passionate about teaching teenagers about the importance of good posture and “habits for life”.

Daniela has two young children, so is very familiar with this age group. She is also experienced in supporting mums through the pre- and post- natal period, with training in a number of special techniques in this area.

If you would like further advice regarding chiropractic care for your child, you are welcome to come for a 20 minute chat with Michelle or Daniela. Please call Reception on 01428 642778 to book your “Free Screening”.
