During her earlier years of practice, Laura was very involved in the treatment of women during pregnancy having experienced some of the discomfort that can be brought about as a result of the body changing to accomodate the growing child and the relief provided by osteopathic treatment. This is a particularly good time to address these problems as the pregnant body is very responsive to physical therapy. During this time osteopathy can help the muscles and joints cope with the demands of pregnancy, this can, on occasions, simply involve massage of the overworked muscles.
Laura spent one year working at the Osteopathic Centre for Children treating children and babies with a range of health problems some severe others less so. Although Laura is able to address a range of childhood issues, more complex problems may be referred on to specialist practitioners such as The Haydens at Church Down Osteopaths, Cheltenham or The Osteopathic Centre for Children in Manchester and London
