Craniosacral Treatments for children

Cransiosacral practitioners believe that children can carry residual problems in their bodies related to their birth experience.

This is especially true when the birth has been a traumatic one where invasive methods have been applied (usually out of necessity). For example a caesarean delivery, forceps or suction delivery, or the use of pain alleviation medication (epidurals or injections), or babies who were in utero subjected to maternal illness and toxicity.

Symptoms are often immediately obvious but sometimes don’t develop until later on.

Childhood and Adolescent conditions which have responded well to craniosacral therapy include:

The treatment of young children can be helpful in preventing issues arising later in life: Health problems in adults which are linked to their birth or very early experience can be resolved retrospectively.
