Colic & Reflux

Colic and baby reflux is painful and babies suffering from these issues can be irritable. This affects their sleep, mood, eating habits, development and more. As a result, their overall health gets affected. We offer manual treatment (massage) and craniosacral therapy to relieve infants of discomfort caused by this condition. Our colic and acid reflux treatment in Hong Kong provides relief and helps in maintaining a certain balance in the body, which in turn reduces the effects of the condition. Gentle movements are utilised to ensure the baby’s delicate body is properly taken of and he /she is relaxed during the treatment.

Colic in Babies
Infants suffering from colic tend to cry for long periods of time and there seems to be no way to console or help them out of this state. They will also arch their backs while crying. They will stop crying almost as suddenly as they started. If your baby cries for 3 hours for 3 days a week and a minimum of 3 months, these symptoms could indicate colic.

Baby Reflux
Most babies suffer from a certain amount of reflux. They will spit their food up because their digestive system is not developed properly. The sphincter muscle separating their stomach and oesophagus doesn’t open or close on time, which causes the food and stomach acid to flow back to the mouth. This backflow causes pain and a burning sensation in the throat. This is known as baby reflux.

Colic and Acid Reflux Treatment
We provide manual therapy treatment and craniosacral therapy for babies suffering from colic and reflux. These treatment processes are gentle and can help relieve physical stress and correct other issues that might be troubling your baby.


Why Babies Suffer from Colic & Acid Reflux
The biggest reason why babies suffer from colic and reflux is due to some complication or compression of nerves or bones during the pregnancy or birthing process. During pregnancy, if the baby has been in a position that compressed his body, it can cause problems even after birth. The same holds true for the birth process. If forceps are used to pull the baby out, it could compress the bones or nerves impairing normal functions. A fast push could cause whiplash whereas a lengthy birth process could compress certain nerves. Compressions and tensions in the body can affect the Vagus nerve, which in turn could cause colic or reflux. If the cranial nerves have been affected due to irregular movement of the neck and mouth, the baby could have trouble latching on when feeding. Further, this could affect the baby’s ability to roll.
