CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY FOR
PARENTS AND BABIES
Craniosacral therapy is a great help during pregnancy, and for many of the ailments of young babies and children.
This gentle treatment can ease backache, improve digestive problems of pregnancy and give the expectant mother much-needed relaxation.
Parents often bring along babies for treatment, suffering from colic, sleeping trouble and digestive problems.
Many parents appreciate skilful and sympathetic help and support both at these stages, and also as their children grow older. Craniosacral therapy is a valuable resource for parents and their children over many years.
From the moment of conception, a child’s life is a whirlwind of change and development. These many changes bring their own challenges and it can be helpful to have a range of supportive “tools” to address the issues.
Craniosacral therapy is one such tool and is ideal for babies and children since the touch is extremely gentle and is carried out fully clothed.
The treatment develops out of what the practitioner feels in the client – so the client, of any age, totally directs the session.
This is vitally important when working with a child who often has little control over some aspects of their life and wellbeing.
Craniosacral therapy enables them to begin the important process of being aware of, and responsible for their own physical and emotional health.
It can also enable the child to relax and enjoy life for the first time, if she has had a stressful birth. It is not necessary for words to be used to convey how the treatment is being experienced, so it is ideal for babies and children with no, or limited speech.
