Child Health Information Classes

Would you like to be more confident managing your children's health at home? Would you like to know more about the symptoms children experience? As local parents ourselves we understand how much conflicting & often confusing health information is out there for families.

Adam is a children’s doctor who has worked in A&Es & paediatric units around London over the last decade, and sees many parents who feel unsure about what's fact or opinion.

Anna is a doula working with new parents, and is constantly amazed at how little information we are given when sent home to look after little humans!

Together we discuss some of the big topics in paediatric medicine, learning through evidence & research why & how things happen in children's bodies. We keep it informative & as jargon free as possible to equip & empower you in a practical way. We'll help you understand what symptoms mean, how to manage them at home and when to seek a medical opinion. If you’re expecting your first, you're a new parent, or have older children - this class is for you!

What we cover:

  • Fevers - why they happen, when to worry, how to treat
  • Coughs and colds
  • Rashes - what is worrying, what looks bad but is fine, and why
  • Respiratory conditions - asthma, croup, wheeze etc.
  • Vomiting and sickness - how to manage at home and when to be concerned
  • Choking, gagging, and what to do
  • Cuts, bruises, head injuries - how to treat and when to get medical support
  • Plenty more, with plenty of time for questions and clarifications from a paediatrician!

New dates for this course have not been scheduled yet, but please contact Anna using the form below if you are interested.

Meet Roxanne Armstrong. 

Roxanne offers both myofascial release (MFR) and ScarWork treatments at Moon on Friday afternoons - more about those in subsequent posts. However, here's more about Roxanne in her own words πŸ‘‡

Hi, I’m Roxanne, originally from Canada.

I came to the UK to work in Theatre (Costume), then about 15 years ago I took a weekend course in massage which completely changed my direction in life.

So, I started my therapist journey properly in 2006 with JING Massage Training and a foundation in Holistic Medical Massage, then in 2008 I qualified in Sports & Remedial Massage at the NLSSM. I continued my training in Myofascial Release with MFR UK & ScarWork treatment of scars developed by Sharon Wheeler.

Pretty much from beginning I have been fascinated by Fascia and have always consider fascial adhesions in the when tailoring treatments for clients.

Growing an entire new human being in nine months is an immense task, but it is also one that our bodies are equipped to 
accommodate.

Although, sometimes we need a bit of support.

The wonderful pregnancy hormones that help your body prepare for birth, the weight of the baby, increase in blood and fluid volume, coupled with the body's attempt to keep you upright and functioning can but tremendous pressure of areas such as the pelvis.

Osteopathy can treat a whole range of musculoskeletal conditions, such as pelvic girdle pain, to give you that extra bit of support in your maternity journey.

Once your little one is in your arms the birth hormones will take time to settle down, during this time you may be more prone to strains and sprains. To add to this, breastfeeding and carrying your baby can put a lot of pressure on the body – not helped by lack of sleep! Osteopathy can also help in the days, weeks and months after you've given birth.
