This is a very gentle form of hands-on treatment, which is extremely safe and effective in the treatment of babies and children. Specific gentle touch is applied where necessary to enable the inherent healing ability of the body to affect the release of birth trauma.
Many of our clients are pleasantly surprised to find out that there is often a physical cause for their baby’s symptoms, and that it can be easily treatable.
It is never too early to start treatment; our youngest client is, or should we say was, 3 days old.
Birth can unfortunately be a traumatic experience for both mother and baby.
During delivery the baby’s head is compressed and moulded to travel through the birth canal. The bones of the head are designed to flex and overlap during delivery process. After delivery the head gradually un-moulds over the next few days. However, this un-moulding process may be left incomplete, especially if the birth has been difficult.
Caesarean deliveries are not without some subsequent issues with the rapid change from amniotic fluid pressure to atmospheric pressure denying the baby its first spinal manipulation as it travels down the birth canal. In cases such as these Paediatric CranioSacral therapy can be particularly effective.
Paediatric CranioSacral therapy can be used effectively to treat conditions such as colic and other digestive problems, sleeplessness, breathing difficulties, restlessness and irritability, and ear, nose and throat problems including glue ear, asthma, behavioural problems and learning difficulties as the child develops.
