Sleep well Buckwheat with Lavender Pillow for neck support

A pillow with health benefits!
It’s one of the best pillows I have slept on (and I have tried many!). I hand-made it for my boyfriend first, then my friends ordered and as I have had so many positive comments, I decided to make it for other people to enjoy the sleep.

Its a great pillow for insomnia, headache,snoring, irritability, stiff neck and sluggishness and because it can be shaped and moulded to how you like it keeps you in a good position. Also can help lessen puffy eyes in the morning as the lavender helps you breathe well.

It supports your neck, moulds your shape, scented with lavender which is very calming and helps you to sleep more deeply. And its even environmentally friendly!

Makes you want one? Well my friend hand-make them bespoke to order, so for prices and to order please email on suzie@soothe-me.com

Craniosacral Therapy for Mums & Babies

healthy_living_centre

Pregnancy, Mothers and Babies low cost clinic
Craniosacral Therapy for Mums & Babies:
Tuesdays at the Healthy Living Centre Islington.

I visited here and had treatment with Joan, she totally helped me in a time of crisis by treating my son. He was very poorly with an ulcerated esophagus, after having had un-diagnosed silent reflux for several months and I kept being told it was colic again and again by health visitors. I was at my wits end, knowing that it definately NOT just colic I was willing to try anthing to help him and heard about the centre from a friend.

Craniosacral treatment is gentle and non-invasive I believe that the sessions helped to start the turn around of my son Dylans’s condition. Joan also treated me in the session which was greatly needed after bearly sleeping more than 20mins at a time for 2 months! It was amazing to see Dylan go from a stressed in pain baby to sleeping very soundly in just 20 minutes. It also gave me some very precious time to have a little rest.

Osteopathy for Mums & Babies

Based in Farringdon London is: The Foundation for Paediatric Osteopathy.

I took my little son there when he was very poorly with Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD). He was late to be diagnosed with GORD so was in a lot of pain nearly all the time for several months. (I will write more about how I coped soon).

I heard about the FPO charity from another mum who took her daughter there when she kept having ear infections.  The treatment really helped my son, helping to release a nerve connected to digestion in his neck that could have happened during his difficult delivery.
Rather than paying for the treatment you just give a donation after each session. (I wish now I had made the time to get treatment myself too, you can receive treatment up until your baby is one year).

More about the charity: The Foundation for Paediatric Osteopathy, a charitable organisation based in the UK, seeks to ensure that paediatric osteopathy – a gentle, effective and environmentally-friendly treatment – is established as the first recourse for parents and carers concerned for their child’s health.
