Osteopath for Babies and Children

About Me

My name is Tracey Cambridge. My former patients will know me by my maiden name Tracey Aird.

I qualified as an Osteopath in 1997 after a four year full-time course at the British School of Osteopathy (BSO). I became intensely passionate about what osteopathy can do for babies and children after observing the wonderful results in the BSO Children's Clinic Photo of Tracey Cambridge and decided that I wanted to specialise in their treatment. Immediately upon graduation I volunteered at the Osteopathic Centre for Children (The OCC is the clinical arm of the Foundation for Paediatric Osteopathy, which includes education, outreach and research programmes) and then later became a full-time staff member for 3½ years. I was awarded the Diploma in Paediatric Osteopathy in 2000. To this day I consider my work to be a vocation in the original sense of the word: a calling.

I left the OCC at the end of 2002 to work at the School House Osteopathic Clinic - a busy and successful children's clinic in Chelmsford, Essex.

In 2007, after the birth of my daughter, my husband and I chose to settle in East Grinstead, West Sussex.

What is different about me?

I am a Paediatric Osteopath with a special interest in the treatment of newborn babies, and my practice is wholly devoted to treating babies, children and their mums. I have a Diploma in Paediatric Osteopathy from the Osteopathic Centre for Children (2000) and have many years experience treating a broad range of infant conditions. My emphasis is true to the roots of Osteopathy: using my skills to “listen” to what the patient's body is telling me. This requires patience, time and the ability to sit still for a length of time. Other practioners can be too hurried to do this effectively.

Some osteopaths have referred their patients to me when they have not been able to get an improvement after 4 or 5 treatments. With these referrals I have been able to find the problem in a single treatment, and make an immediate observable improvement.

My basic philosophies are:–

Please take the time to read from the examples of some of the ‘Thank you’ letters I have received. You can find them on the testimonials page.

Thank you for seeing this 6 month old infant who you have seen before. She has a congenital spasmodic torticollis. Your treatment was helpful, therefore the parents wish to continue. I am grateful for your help in this matter.
