Juliet Hartis BSc (Hons) Ost Med, DO, DPO, ND

Osteopath, specialising in Paediatric and Cranial Osteopathy

Juliet Hartis is a paediatric, cranial and general practice osteopath, registered with the General Osteopathic Council.  After gaining a BSc in Anatomy and Developmental Biology at University College London, she trained at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine, gaining a BSc in Osteopathic Medicine and a Naturopathic Diploma.  As part of regular continued professional development, Juliet has also completed a 2 year post-graduate Diploma in Paediatric Osteopathy as well as further courses in cranial and classical osteopathy.  Also a Tutor at Oxford Brookes University.

Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and gentle hands-on treatment, suitable for all ages and tailored to each individual patient.  Osteopathy is about helping you to achieve a better state of balance within your body, allowing it to function at its optimum.

Osteopathy aims to relieve aches and pains, increase mobility and enhance blood and nerve supply to tissues, aiding healing.  Treatment includes massaging, releasing and stretching muscles and other connective tissues; mobilising and gently manipulating joints of the spine and limbs; balancing the musculoskeletal framework and therefore all the internal structures that are suspended from it.

Osteopathy is beneficial and safe during pregnancy.  Treatment can help ease discomfort relating to the postural changes of pregnancy (such as to the lumbar spine, ribs, neck and shoulders) and hormonal effects on ligament stability, often indicated in the conditions symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD) and pelvic girdle pain (PGP).  Following birth, osteopathy can help to resolve strains to the mother’s pelvis and body and to ease neck and shoulder tension that relates to feeding and caring for the baby. 

Newborn checks can be performed on babies, with or without symptoms, to see if there are any unresolved strains remaining in the baby’s head and body from the birth process.  These strains can be due to any type of birth, whether natural, induced, assisted or caesarean section.  Such strains can be linked to unsettled, colicky and irritable behavior in young babies and can impact on their feeding, digestion, mobility and sleep.

To make an appointment with Juliet Hartis, or to discuss whether osteopathy might be appropriate for your situation, please either phone 07710 995 507 or email juliet.hartis@yahoo.co.uk
