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.
Its very important to take care to use very natural skincare during pregnancy, because it is thought that we can absorb around 60% of harmful chemicals through the skin into the body. Therefore they could possibly be in some way damaging to the baby.
For this reason I chose to use only natural skin care during my pregnancy. Faithfully I used my soothe-me 100% natural & organic bump & boobs oil everyday from 12 weeks. Its a great natural product designed to support the skin during its time of belly s t r e t c h i n g!
I have just a few very small marks under my belly button and that is it. I am clearly very lucky and I know that genetics help too (my mum does not have any). But I DO BELIEVE the natural oil helped support and nourish my skin while it was expanding, helping strengthen and nourish the skin cells to prevent marks from appearing badly.
I have had excellent feedback from all my customers and pregnant friends that used it, some are actually still using it as a body and even face oil! I can make a special 250ml VALUE BOTTLE to order, email me – firstname.lastname@example.org
I am make bespoke products and have a great ‘Healing Oil’ that can help to heal scars and damaged skin.
I only make this to order 100ml £12.99.
Stretchmarks in general – is there a cure?
