Our specialist Children’s Clinic offers reduced price osteopathic care as a permanent concession to any child from new born up to the age of 16, as well as those in full time education from 16 – 18. All concessionary rates are valid for daytime appointments only.
Infants and Babies
Babies’ skeletons are softer than an adult’s and gentler techniques, such as cranial osteopathy, are used when treating babies. Such gentle manipulation can also help soothe and relax your baby. Techniques will be tailored to your child’s’ needs and everything will be fully explained throughout. We have a very good student to tutor ratio and your child will often be treated by a final year student and tutor together, enriching the treatment process.
Osteopathic techniques are suitable for children at all stages of development and we will assess your child to see what might help.
In older children, problems might arise though excessive computer use, hunching over a laptop, or through carrying heavy bags to and from school. Some children may suffer with minor sports injuries. We can help to reduce those injuries and aim to develop strategies with your child to help prevent them from recurring. Most children enjoy treatment and a growing awareness for their health educates them early to look after themselves.
Child Protection Policy
The aim of this policy is to ensure that throughout the ESO, children are treated with respect and are protected from abuse and exploitation. As an organisation, we understand and take seriously our duty of care to protect the children with whom we work. Therefore, the ESO has clearly defined procedures, a code of conduct and an open culture of support.

Tree of Hope transforms the lives of seriously ill and disabled children by supporting families to fundraise for vital medical care, therapy and equipment not available via the UK health service.

Would highly recommend this clinic. The student I had was extremely gentle and knowledgeable and my little one would start to doze off while having her treatments. Both myself and my husband have been back to have treatments ourselves due to back problems and would recommend for adults too

I bought my 15 year old daughter who had suffered injuries from athletics and dancing. She has been going to the clinic now for 10 months and it has been great for helping with pain relief. The student practitioners and tutors look at her complete care and have been great in recommending further avenues we can take to help her in the future

I took my little boy when he was 13 days old, one of the youngest patients they have had, they worked wonders on him after his traumatic birth and NICU stay I have also had treatments and wouldn’t go anywhere else
