Babies & Young Children
Some women sail through their pregnancy, whilst for others it can be a bit of a struggle. Whatever your experience, CST can help in many ways. CST helps to relieve minor ailments, settles the nervous and hormonal systems and supports your body’s physical changes.
CST is a safe and gentle choice for pregnant women. It can be used for minor ailments such as back pain, stress and anxiety regarding the birth by balancing the nervous system and generally supporting both mother and baby in the preparation for birth.
The treatment is usually carried out whilst lying sideways.
CST for Babies
Babies often come for craniosacral therapy in the first weeks following birth. The baby’s mother and father will usually be asked to be part of the session and as the baby responds to the treatment, this shared experience can deepen the bonds within the new family.
CST is beneficial even if the pregnancy and birth were trouble-free. It can also offer support for establishing and supporting breastfeeding, developing good sleep patterns, with early infant feeding problems including colic and reflux as well as bonding with parents and siblings.
Babies are often treated whilst feeding or being cuddled. Sometimes mother and baby are treated together.
Children of all ages can benefit from Craniosacral Therapy. CST is a nurturing and calming approach to childhood healthcare. Many common behavioural, social, and learning difficulties respond well to CST. The treatment process is gentle and supportive.
A note regarding a 7 year old boy who had anger issues. He had 4 sessions
The change in xxxx is quite remarkable. Thank you so much for what you have done for him. He is calm and cheerful and his response to anything negative which would have produced anger, upset or frustration before, has totally changed. He’s in a very positive place and it’s such a treat to see.
