The mASCot Health and Wellbeing Project
THE MASCOT HEALTH AND WELLBEING PROJECT…
…is a team of experienced health professionals with peadiatric
expertise coming from cranial osteopathy, nutritional therapy and homeopathy
backgrounds. The team members work with a shared aim of providing mASCot
members and their children with a multidisciplinary holistic system of low cost
natural health care support and advice.
BIT OF BACKGROUND
The Health and Wellbeing
Project for mASCot families started in 2013, led initially by a sole
practitioner Astra Grayland who is a paediatric osteopath. Due to a huge increase in
demand over recent years, we were thrilled to announce the expansion of the
team in 2018, with the additions of: osteopaths Frithe Johnson, Suzie Franklin
and Troy Bradley; nutritionist Lynn Hickinbottom and homeopaths Roberta Young and
Melissa Jobbins. This means that far more people can now access the project,
with the added bonus of a broader range of expertise now in the mix.

WHY DO WE NEED THIS?
More and more parents are seeing that there is an interrelation between certain health conditions and the ASC profile. Issues such as: digestive and bowel problems, food allergies and intolerances, respiratory issues, constant colds/coughs/infections, glue ear, low energy, hyper energy, low muscle tone, hyper mobility, attention and focus issues, motor skills/co-ordination, anxiety, sleep issues…the list goes on doesn't it?!!
So many of these symptoms can actually be explained by physiological issues - poor absorption of nutrients, overloaded adrenal systems, disrupted hormonal and immune systems, or weakened, overloaded organs are common factors.
The impairments in the physiological and biomedical systems so very common in our ASC young people can have direct and serious implications on general health, mental health AND on an individual’s neurological function and development. This can be a big obstacle in the way of reaching their true potential.
The mASCot Health and Wellbeing Project team works with the family to unpick, support and treat the complex, individual physiological health picture of each child.
