 Guy's interest in babies, children and cranial osteopathy that led him to complete a Diploma in Paediatric Osteopathy in London, U.K.

The Foundation of which Guy is a alumni member, is renowned for its specialist treatment, quality care and education. Guy is also a member of the editorial board of the South African Journal of Natural Medicine to which he contributes monthly articles.

Paediatric Osteopathy is based on the principle that all ailments – whether minor or serious – are as a result of an imbalance somewhere in the network of the body’s systems.

After making a diagnosis, following a full medical history and examination a paediatric osteopath will use refined and subtle manual techniques to bring about profound changes within the child’s body through gentle manipulation.

This will allow the musculoskeletal system, the gastrointestinal tract, the nervous system, the immune system and the circulatory system – to work effectively and optimally. The treatment uses no drugs, and is non-invasive.

Conditions treated include: Infantile colic, crying irritable babies, chronic chest  infections, behavioural problems, aches and pains and more.
