Craniosacral Therapy with Babies and Children

By Evelina Bolognini 

One of Craniosacral therapy’s most frequently appreciated qualities is its capacity to rapidly resolve some problems that babies have. To find out more, the best way is to talk with people who have already brought their child to a Craniosacral therapist. Some of the difficulties that babies can have are due to the compression the baby undergoes during birth. Parents are frequently relieved and amazed by the improvements resulting from Craniosacral sessions.

As a result of the contractions and passage through the pelvis and the birth canal, babies get very compressed during birth and this can displace things in their bodies. The relatively soft bones of the head move during birth but don’t always return to an optimal position, leading to a variety of difficult conditions. At the same time the same compression happening when passing through the birth canal is the way natures wisdom provides babies with a “jump start” for the nervous system. Caesarean births and those involving forceps or suction are more likely to lead to symptoms. These are often immediately obvious but sometimes don’t develop until later on. Craniosacral therapy can be beneficial to all babies including those who have had problem-free births.

Babies can’t speak but that doesn’t mean you can’t communicate with them. Parents often understand a baby’s non-verbal communication. The therapist’s appreciation of what things are like for babies plays a big part in the treatment. CST is effective for both children and adolescents.

What happens at birth can be a factor in some adult physical and psychological conditions. Treatment of young children may be helpful preventively. Health problems in adults which are linked to their birth or very early experience may be addressed. All Craniosacral therapists work with symptoms related to birth and some have developed this into a speciality.
