What Clients Say…

‘Kelly has such a calm and gentle way with babies and I really appreciated this.
As a new mum, you of course want people who come into contact with your child to treat them and hold them the same way that you do – and that’s exactly what I got. My daughter warmed to her immediately and gave her lots of smiles! Although my daughter has never been a ‘challenging’ baby, I saw a subtle but noticeable difference in her after each treatment. After the first treatment, she carried far less tension in her neck and shoulders and breastfed in a more relaxed way (we were having some troubles with feeding in certain positions before). After the second treatment (at a time when my partner and I were both quite stressed which I feel was rubbing off on her), she was much calmer and settled back to her usual cheerful self within a day or two. 
All in all, I would highly recommend Kelly’s services – both for adults (I have had many wonderful sessions with her) but especially for babies. The way in which she was able to so gently and profoundly help settle my daughter into her natural way of being was truly incredible and I’m very grateful for her work.’

I have been seeing Kelly for cranial osteopathy at Neal’s Yard Remedies for many years now and have also taken both of my sons to be treated at different times. My youngest son plays a lot of football and her treatments have really helped with some difficult injuries. Kelly is a wonderful therapist and I would highly recommend her.’
