Recently a previous pregnant patient returned to me for further treatment, because she wanted to have the European School of Osteopathy approach to pregnancy. As a result of recent controversial news on various therapists, she has asked me to publish her review, to reassure other prospective pregnant patients that cranial osteopathy is safe.

Cranial osteopaths should be registered with the General Osteopathic Council.

I was trained at the European School of Osteopathy in Cranial Osteopathy before it become a postgraduate sub-specialty. We had small classes and our lecturers included Upledger, an internationally renowned osteopathic physician, recognised in particular for his development of CranioSacral Therapy.

I first visited Helen about 3 years ago. My osteopath was unavailable and I couldn’t find anyone with a genuine and traditional approach that I was used to. I was pregnant with my second child and my sacrum was displaced when I was driving. I couldn’t walk. Helen saw me straight away, fitting me in for a good hour! It took 3 sessions and I was pain free and had a wonderful birth.

Now on my third pregnancy, I am living in London and saw a shockingly bad cranial osteopath who had a bad manner and poor practice, rendering me worse than I went in. I knew I had to see Helen again. So I did, she gave me immediate attention and was lovely to see her again, (even if it was due to these circumstances!!!) I am again pain free after 3 treatments and so happy. Helen’s healing hands with cranial are amazing. Her approach to her work is outstanding and to her clients. She is truly brilliant.‎
