Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy for Infants & Children

Infant craniosacral sessions are offered as a home visit with new parents. Infant craniosacral therapy promotes bonding and attachment for new families, and helps relax baby. Research has shown that baby massage settles the nervous system of most babies, and promotes weight gain. Touch is vital to babies, and can help relieve the symptoms of colic, torticolis and nursing challenges. It can promote better sleep and sensory awareness, too. Infant massage also has many benefits for parents.

       A baby’s cranium is made to shift and mold during birth. Sometimes, the process can be hard on babies. Most difficulties during birth and the prenatal period can resolve when the child comes into relationship with their parents after birth. However, sometimes a little more help is needed.

       Baby bodywork sessions often take three-six sessions, and children take between 6 and 10 sessions before you see results.

Your visit last week really helped… and me, too! Last week ended up being incredibly stressful, and I can’t imagine how we would have fared without your calming influence.

Your visit seems to have done…a lot of good! We’ve had several very successful breastfeeding sessions, which is a lot more than I was able to say just a few days ago!

 Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy is a gentle approach to help your child’s system reset and come into balance. People seek craniosacral therapy for their babies if there is a concern such as:

•    Colic
•    Reflux
•    Body stiffness or little tone
•    Cranial molding related to birth or in utero
•    Sleep issues
•    Attachment issues
•    Nursing difficulties
•    Development delays
•    Crawling or walking concerns
•    NICU experiences

Some of these experiences are due to:

•    Very fast or long labors
•    Malposition during birth or in utero
•    Analgesics
•    Mechanical issues
•    Surgical intervention
•    Premature births
•    Multiples
•    Loss (Miscarriage and Twin Loss)
•    Very stressful prenatal periods
•    Adoption

Gentle holds on the baby help realign bones and release tensions so that the baby’s developing nervous system functions optimally. The intention is to support empowerment, attachment, and protection for baby and family.
