ScarWork Therapy for Caesarean Section Scar

with Maria Cobo

ScarWork Therapy is a specialised manual treatment to help patients with scar tissue, fibrosis, adhesions and changes in tissue health following surgery and radiotherapy. It is used to improve feeling and functionality in the scar and surrounding tissues, creating better movement between the layers of the skin, fascia (connective tissue) and muscle.
Scars often appear smaller, flatter, lighter and less prominent but the emphasis is on the underlying tissue changes. As the dense scar tissue reduces and the tissue health recovers, nerve impairment such as numbness, pain, itching, irritation or extreme sensitivity often improves.

Pre/Post Natal Five Element Acupuncture and Shonishin Paediatric Acupuncture

with Victoria Moss

Acupuncture is an ancient system of medicine originating in Asia that has been used effectively as a holistic healing method for over 2,000 years. It works on the underlying principle that illness and pain occur when the body's Qi, or vital energy, cannot flow freely through the body's energy channels, known as meridians. There can be many reasons for this, including emotional and physical stress, poor nutrition, infection or injury. By inserting ultra-fine sterile needles into specific acupuncture points, the acupuncturist seeks to re-establish the free flow of Qi to restore balance and trigger the body's natural healing response.  

 

Five Element Acupuncture 

 

The five elements are Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal and they are a fundamental and integral part of Chinese medicine and philosophy. Each element is associated with different organs, seasons, emotions, odours, colours, sounds and times of day. Everyone has all of the elements within them. Five element acupuncturists seek to find and treat the root cause of disease by diagnosing the element that is in distress. The focus is very much on the individual, not just their symptoms or illness, and treatment aims to bring about balance in the whole person - body, mind and spirit. It is used by many people as a preventative measure to strengthen their constitution and improve their immune system. It is highly effective in addressing stress and emotional problems before they lead to more serious illness. Patients often report an improvement in their feeling of general wellbeing, increased energy, improved sleep, and reduced stress.

Shonishin Paediatric Acupuncture

Shonishin (Japanese paediatric acupuncture) is a unique type of non-needle acupuncture designed especially for the treatment of babies and children. It has been practised in Japan for over 250 years. In recognition of the fact that babies and children do not like needles, Shonishin uses painless, non-invasive techniques such as tapping, stroking and rubbing with different tools to stimulate the meridians and acupuncture points to bring about balance in the child's vital energy (Qi) and strengthen their constitution. It is a very gentle but very effective approach and has a strong therapeutic effect.

Pre/Post Natal Osteopathy | Paediatric Osteopathy

with Karly Proverbs (Most, PgCert SPOP, DO, DN)

Osteopathy is a system of assessment, diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. It works with the structure and function of the body and is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together..

Osteopaths are highly trained allied health professionals (AHPs) who are experts in the musculoskeletal system. Osteopathic treatment combines manual therapy, exercise and self-care advice which is specifically tailored to the needs of the individual.  

Osteopathic treatment during pregnancy is safe and effective. Many women find osteopathy helpful for: 

  • The management of aches and pains associated with pregnancy, including low back pain;  

  • Advice on physical activity and exercise during pregnancy; and 

  • Pelvic floor advice and preparation for birth 

 

Postnatal osteopathic treatment can also help with: 

  • Relieving aches and pains associated with birth and feeding baby and how to manage them

  • Pelvic floor health

  • A safe return to exercise 

Paediatric Osteopathy - Newborn babies and children

Mummy MOT®

with Karly Proverbs (Most, PgCert SPOP, DO, DN)

A Mummy MOT® is a specialist postnatal examination for women following both vaginal and caesarean deliveries.

 

After pregnancy, up to half of mothers’ experience weakness in their abdominal and pelvic floor muscles and up to a third still have a tummy gap after eight weeks. This can lead to women developing pelvic pain or back pain, problems with their bladder or bowel and/or sexual dysfunction. These conditions are not something you should simply live with because you have had a baby.

 

It is recommended that women have an initial assessment after their 8-week GP check, but Mummy MOT practitioners also treat women who gave birth years ago.

 

As a Mummy MOT practitioner, Karly is fully trained and licensed to carry out a Mummy MOT®. Mums lead active lives and need to bend, squat, lift and carry! As part of the Mummy MOT® Karly provides individually tailored postnatal care and functional exercises.

 

A Mummy MOT 1st consultation includes

· A full postural screen

· Pelvic floor muscle assessment

· Abdominal muscle exam to check for any separation

· Screening for bladder, bowel or sexual dysfunction

Follow up treatment includes

· Education and advice on activities such as lifting your baby or pushing a buggy.

· A bespoke rehabilitation programme with your goals and lifestyle factors in mind.

· A written report of the findings of your assessment.

What to expect

An initial assessment may last up to 75 minutes. Karly will take a thorough case history which involves listening to your experience and any concerns in detail, taking your relevant medical history (including any current medication), followed by a physical examination. An explanation of Karly’s findings and number of further appointments needed will always be discussed.

 

Treatment Options  

Following the initial Mummy MOT consultation, treatment will be tailored to the individual and may include:

 

· The provision of pelvic floor exercises and deep abdominal strengthening to assist in graded retraining of the pelvic floor muscles and abdominals

· Internal and external manual therapy techniques to relax the pelvic floor muscles including stretching and release techniques

· Osteopathic manual therapy of the surrounding muscles and joints

· Scar massage

· Relaxation and breathing techniques

She is able to refer you to other health care practitioners who can offer body work on your baby to release any tension which may be presenting in the soft tissue, and local feeding support groups.

Sessions cost £220 this includes your initial appointment, 1 hour 15 min, to assess the oral function, review your feeding and perform the frenulotomy (if indicated) and the opportunity to attend a 30 minute follow up 2 weeks after your initial session.

Pre/Post Natal Acupuncture (TCM)

with Vanessa Rubio

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine that has been practised for over two thousand years. It involves the insertion of incredibly fine needles into specific acupuncture points in the body to stimulate, restore and balance the smooth flow ‘Qi’, our vital energy. When the body is healthy, Qi flows smoothly throughout the meridians of the body. However, issues arise when the balance of Qi is deficient or disrupted. Acupuncture helps to harmonise and rebalance the body as it treats both the symptoms and the root cause.

Alongside acupuncture, traditional Gua sha can be used to alleviate neck, shoulder and back tension. This promotes harmony and wellbeing by calming the nervous system, easing muscle pain and boosting immunity. '

As acupuncture is cumulative, a course of 4-8 weekly treatments is generally advised.
