Felicity Bertin B,Ost, MSCC, Dip.Paed.Ost

Registered Osteopath

Felicity treats a wide variety of patients from babies to adults using a combination of cranial and structural techniques as well as postural and exercise advice. She is interested in finding the root of the problem so that a course of treatment can be devised to relieve the symptoms as soon as possible and then to prevent them returning by prescribing exercise and ergonomic exercise advice. Felicity is committed to an integrated approach working with her patients’ consultants, GPs, fitness instructors, etc. to enable the patient to get the best care.

Felicity has a special interest in treating musculoskeletal pain in pregnancy and post-natal women. She believes that it is common but not normal for women to suffer unnecessary pain during pregnancy and post-natally and that there are very few musculoskeletal symptoms during this time that cannot be helped by osteopathic treatment.

Conditions that can be treated well with osteopathy during pregnancy include:

Back pain
Sacro-iliac pain
Pelvic pain (PPGP)
Rib pain
Headaches

Felicity will do check-ups for newborn babies who can be seen immediately after they are born which often helps with feeding issues. She receives referrals from many of the leading tongue-tie practitioners, IBCLC lactation consultants and midwifes in the area and may see your baby either within the hospital, at Apple Tree Osteopaths Clinics or in your home.

Felicity holds a Diploma in Paediatric Osteopathy and has also taught osteopathic approaches to infant feeding to post-graduate students. She teaches trainee midwives around the benefits of osteopathy and has co-authored two books around infant feeding.
