Osteopathy - Postnatal
Pregnancy and labour can take its toll on your body. Your
posture has gradually adapted for several months to pregnancy, and suddenly it
must be readapted to the absence of the baby in the womb.
Pregnancy hormones also continue to affect your muscles and
ligaments for sometime after birth, making them more lax, which places pressure
and increased risks of injury on the joints, ligaments and discs of the lower
back and other parts of your body.
Finally, new activities such as feeding and carrying your
baby will put additional strain on your body.
Osteopathic treatment is an effective way to address these
concerns, promote optimum recovery and help prevent future problems due to
Besides, by relieving postural strains resulting from long
hours spent carrying and feeding your baby as well as repetitive movements such
as lifting your baby, osteopathy will make the day-to-day demands of motherhood
much easier for you.

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 👇
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
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.
