Over the years I have received many letters and cards from parents, and sometimes the children, expressing thanks for the treatments they received. I have selected a few of the most touching to share with you here. I hope they bring you the same joy they have brought me.
Other parents have been kind enough to leave reviews for me at my page on Facebook or on the Qype website, some of which you can see some below. (Just click a review to read it fully.)
Tracey has done a fantastic job with our second son. Thanks to her, a serious neck mobility problem and twisted skull plate – resulting from a very fast delivery with cord around neck – have been corrected, which would certainly have required much more severe interventions and created more suffering for our son if left until picked by GP/district nurses. Furthermore my wife has been able to continue breastfeeding despite a serious re-attaching tongue tie problem which Tracey has also treated successfully. She's a very calm person with a great way with children and an unquestionable commitment to the best interests of her clients: she charges per treatment regardless of how long it takes, so much so that we insisted she accept more payment after the early sessions. And as a result our son is now a happy little man of 4 months, who sleeps through the night no problem. We have already passed her details onto friends who have seen her and been similarly delighted.
Tracey has helped both of my babies through her ‘magic touch’ and I would highly recommend her for all babies who suffered a traumatic entry into the world and also babies/children who are struggling with teething and ear problems as Tracey has helped us greatly with all the above !!! She is a warm and caring practitioner who really does have the most profound effect on the most fractious infant or exuberant toddler !!
I honestly feel that Tracey helped me to bond with my baby at a time when I had suffered a great deal of emotional stress and I am incredibly grateful for that. I am not sure how I feel about the idea of “healers” – I am a natural sceptic, but if such things exist then Tracey certainly has the gift of healing hands. Thank you Tracey!
I took my twins to see tracey they were 5 months old at the time they were both having trouble passing wind and sleeping. The minute i meet her she was so lovley and very carming, she asked me to hold the baby with the most problems which was melody and she started to work on her and then all this wind came out of and Tracey said she had a knot in her tummy. Patience passed wind as well.Tracey worked on the twins for a few sessions. then when Melody was having a growth spurt we took her back to Tracey and she worked her magic again. Tracey was amazing to my girls and all i can say is thank you thank you thank you. If anyone has pemature babies and they are not seterling please call TRACEY STRAIGHT AWAY.
I had a healthy pregnancy with my 3rd child and a planned c-section. All went well and I had a lovely calm and peaceful baby for 2 weeks… then at 2 weeks it was like someone swapped my lovely chilled out baby for a little boy who was CONSTANTLY screaming for hours on end with no change at all no matter what you done with him. He would scream for usually around 4 hours, then fall asleep absolutely exhausted for around 15 minutes then before he even opened his eyes he would wake screaming for the next 4 hours and so on with NO CHANGE at all and no stopping. Myself and my partner spent hours walking him around the room, cuddling him, putting him down, laying him in every single position possible but had no joy, just constant screaming. He would be arching his back, sweating, tears streaming down his little cheeks and we knew something just wasnt right. We found the car would usually stop him but if you stopped at a red light etc he’d launch into full blown screaming. this went on day after day for about 4 months. During this time my health visitor was coming to see us regularly and I was advised to take him to the doctor. The doctor prescribed him gaviscon, ranitidine, domperidone, lactulose and carobel all to treat silent reflux. these worked for a week and we thought we’d finally got to the bottom of the screaming but after a week he was back to screaming all the time. I was then told by a few friends about cranial osteopathy. I wasnt a believer in any of the ‘healing’ type of work at all but was willing to try anything to put a stop to his heart breaking screaming that i thought it was worth a go. I took him to see an osteopath in my home town of Hastings and she said that his head was EXTREMELY compressed which would be causing him an awful lot of pain and that i needed him to see someone at the hospital asap. I took him to my doctor straight away and he said that upon looking at his head there were no obvious problems. My auntie then suggested that i try a cranial osteopath who specializes in babies to get a 3rd opinion. I agreed that it’d be a good idea and we found Tracey. WOW!!! after the first treatment my little boy cried non stop as usual for 3 days but then it was as if someone had brought back my peaceful 2 week old baby. he was calm to hold and wasn’t always frantic and screaming! He has seen Tracey about 5 times now and he is so much happier it’s unbelievable, he is just a totally different baby. We have some off days and of course he still cries as he is at the teething stage now but the change in him is incredible. I agree with all the other reviews on here, Tracey is very warm and welcoming and truly does work wonders with babies! I really can’t recommend her enough. To anyone who is concerned about their baby, please take them to see Tracey. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Tracey, from Sarah and Charlie Bear.
I was having trouble with my 5 week old baby boy who seemed to be suffereing from colicky symtoms. I googled cranial osteopaths in my area and found Tracey. We made an appointment for the following day and felt relieved to be doing something positive to try and help out son. On arriving at Traceys house we were welcomed into her home and treatment begun after a long chat about my sons arrival into the world. Tracey was very calming and friendly and exlained that it was all down to his difficult birth and that she would be able to help him. Over the past 2 weeks Tracey has continued to treat my son and although hes been a tough cookie to crack were finally getting somewhere! Tracey has been so patient and kind to us and I’d like to thank her from the bottom of my heart for everything she has done for us. She has given us so much of her time and is truly a wonderfully gifted woman whom I would recommend to anyone. Throughout our treatments she has been loving towards both myself and my baby and has helped us through a very difficult period! My son is finally starting to become more settled and is likie a different baby froim when we first started treatments. Thankyou Tracey xx
We took our 3 week old daughter to see Tracey following the advice of our health visitor and midwife. Our daughter was really suffering from wind,to the extent of her crying all day and night and her being in real pain. We only needed 3 sessions with Tracey for her to work her magic and fix our beautiful daughter! Each time we saw Tracey, our daughter seemed so relaxed during her treatment, it was lovely for us to see her in such a peaceful state. We can not recommend Tracey enough if you are having problems with your baby. She is very kind and has a lovely way with children and we did not feel rushed during our sessions. We will certainly use her again if any future problems crop up!
Tracey has done alot of work on my son from when he was very small till about 18 month old. Joshua got very squashed during labour and it effects him during growth spurts and teething. The work that Tracey does has helped us so much to get through the times when my little boy is teething. It releives the pain he is going through and helps him to deal with it and this time he has molars coming through and he is not getting sick which is a FIRST. Tracey was very in tune with my son and she is a very caring person , exactly the type of person you would want to deal with your baby.
You always think “It’ll never happen to me!”…but it did; a beautiful preganancy but a traumatic birth causing harm to both mother and baby. The minute my perfect baby had been delivered he was rushed to special care to be xrayed for broken bones and scanned for brain damage. A difficult delivery gave him a very misshapen head and a deep wound to his face which doctors feared would permently scar. Apart from the physical damage I was told baby was left feeling poorly and I was concerned by his jittery nature and major sleep tremors. I had never heard of this line of work and was sceptical as I did not understand how cranial oesteopathy could be effective. With the situation I was faced with I was willing to try anything. Tracey truly is a miracle worker! She immediately put me at ease, is very friendly but extremely professional. It is a lovely environment and the benefits to baby and me have been unbelievable. I have such a calm and relaxed baby he is like a different boy from my fractous newborn. Everyone says they have never seen such a smiley happy baby and I truly believe this is thanks to Tracey’s work. And the scar on his face…..completly disappeared by five months of age. I cannot recommend Tracey enough, her work is amazing and she will not rip you off!
A very caring lady, extremely tuned in to how the kids are feeling. I have taken 2 of my children to see her over the years and they respond so well. You can feel them relax as the treatment occurs. She spends as much time as necessary with them, we are never rushed in and out. And Mum gets a treatment too which is AMAZING, one of the nicest, most relaxing and incredible things I have ever experienced! Worth every single penny, if not more. Highly recommended, even if you don;t think anything is “wrong” it’s worth going anyway, you and/or your baby/child will still get so much out of it.
I teach the Alexander Technique and have always referred clients to cranial osteopathy and used it myself for 20 years as it is brilliant! Imagine how pleased I was to meet Tracey at the swimming pool within a few weeks of moving to this town. My son was born by emergency c-section and is now six. He still has pressures and problems associated with this but only needs treatment now and then. The main reason why we visit Tracey every 6 weeks is because of the spectacularly violent falls he had earlier this year – 2 onto his forehead and 1 onto the back of his head. They were severe enough to cause short-term behavioural problems and time off school. My son loves going to Tracey. She is very perceptive, gentle and calm. It’s clear that she understands what people need and is very capable of providing the right assistance. I have every confidence that she will gradually help my son with the pressure he has – mainly behind his eyes – towards a full recovery. I would recommend taking your newborn baby to Tracey even if the birth was OK. I also think treatment is a good idea for anyone, especially following an accident or blow to the head.
Tracey is fantastic. My daughter cried all the time when first born, she had colic, was sleeping only a couple of hours at night which meant my husband and I weren’t getting any sleep and having an elder boy meant none of us were having fun. Tracey knocked on my door as she heard the crying and we went round there and the treatment started. I noticed how calm and soothing she was and with some sessions my daughter was calmer and sleeping more at night which meant she was happier in the daytime. Everyone noticed the difference in her. She was also in pain when her teeth were coming through and the day she had her treatment her night sleep was so much better. Tracey also sat with my son (age 4) before he started school, Tracey was spot on with how he was feeling and how he liked things to be, Tracey was brilliant with him as well. Me, I’ve had to see Tracey due to back ache, and general aches and pains and can say hand on heart WOW – I’ve had been to other osteopaths in the past but Tracey is 100 times better than anyone else i had been too. Can highly recommend her for babies, children and adults.
I took my 27 month old son to see Tracey after many knocks to his head and really fretful sleeping! She is a lovely lady, and had a very calming effect to both myself and Jack. I took him 3 times and it definately helped him to sleep easier and without thrashing about all night. What I loved is that Tracey wasn’t pushy about how many times he needed to come back unlike alot of people in these fields, they can keep pulling you back to spend money even if it’s not needed. I would recommend her highly and the fact Mum gets a treatment thrown in is AMAZING! Thank you Tracey.
I was advised to take my baby to a cranial osteopath because she had difficulty feeding. I went to see Tracey when my baby was only 2 weeks old and she solved the problem straight away, within a few days my baby was feeding beautifully. Since then I have taken Laila back to see Tracey with wind problems and once again within a week my baby was able to bring up her wind pain free. I also had a treatment regarding lower back pains and haven’t had to go back since. Tracey is extremely caring and very professional. Definitely recommend!
Tracey was absolutely fantastic with our son, who has special needs. She took a full history and really took her time to get to know us. Tracey also treated me which was anaing for my post-c-section body! Tracey has an amazing “aura” around her and eminates calm and kindness. Zak had his first full nights sleep after Tracey treated him for the first time and she has treated him three times since. I was delighted with Tracey’s services and would not hsitate to recommend her.
Tracey is a wonderfully calming person. She was so attentive to our baby son and my wife establishing a full history of the pre-birth events and the birth itself. Our baby was curled up tight as a result of his birth but with treatment from Tracey he became and acted so relaxed. We noticed an almost immediate improvement in his physical appearance (he would stretch out) and he seemed so much happier in himself. Tracey was also honest and sincere about the number of treatments he would require. Going to see Tracey was one of the best decisions we made. All the best Tracey, and many thanks!
Tracey has done wonders for our baby boy, we knew he had problems as he would cry all the time for hours on end, he was very stiff and jerky and was not meeting any of his milestones. We took him to the doctors on numerous occasions who had no answers. Since we has been going to Tracey he has has come on in leaps and bounds, every week we see such a big difference in him. He is so much more happier and relaxed and has started to reach some of his milestones. Tracey is such a empathetic, kind, calm, and compassionate person who has made a difference to our lives. Tracey truely has magic hands.
Tracey is a miracle worker! She has helped our daughter immensely - we no longer have an unhappy baby who cries uncontrollably for hours, we have a happy contented little girl who continues to improve with every session. Tracey is very calm and caring; listened to my concerns and works confidently and with great skill. She comes highly recommended by myself and my husband.
Tracey has worked wonders with our little girl. We knew there was someting not quite right with her, and were told we just had a fussy baby. Tracey worked on our daughter over a few weeks and now we have a very happy contended baby. We saw a improvement after the first session and then each week things improved further. Tracey is very calm, she made us feel very welcome and really cared for our daughter. My husband called her the "magic lady". We highly recomend her.
“ I was especially moved by the treatment [L] received from you last week - it was such a relief for someone to see / feel into his world and understand how frightening life can be for him at times. ”
