General Osteopathic Manipulation Treatment Information
Here is a list of what to bring to your osteopathic manipulation treatment (OMT) Baby-feet2Adults:

  • Please wear loose-fitting clothes that you can move around in.


  • Please bring toys and/or books to keep your child entertained throughout the treatment.


  • Please bring a blanket from home that your child can lay on during the treatment. The smell and feel of something familiar from home makes them more comfortable during the treatment
  • Be sure to feed your child before the appointment
  • If the treatment is in the afternoon, be sure that your child has had a chance to nap before the appointment to avoid unnecessary fussiness
