Babies are tougher than they look but it helps to have some gentle, natural treatments at hand to address the health of all your younger children. Whether your child is suffering from cerebral palsy, traumatic birth or just temporary effects of painful colic it is worthwhile exploring how CranioSacral Therapy can help.
Treating newborn babies and younger children using CranioSacral Therapy can be very beneficial for a wide range of conditions including:
Children with special needs ranging from learning difficulties such as dyslexia or attention deficit disorders to those affected by complex disabilities can become very stressed. Many parents report positive effects on the behaviour, mood and abilities of their children following relaxing therapeutic sessions.
It is thought that difficult births or challenging experiences in the early years can have longterm negative health effects. From improved learning skills, speech and co-ordination to helping the immune system cope with the early days at nursery or school, natural therapies can help make your children happier and healthier. Gentle non-invasive therapies are ideal for improving your child's health and helping unleash their full potential.
Even the most easiest of deliveries can have an effect on the newborn. The pressures put on the cranium and neck during the birthing experience can bring around compression in the neck and upper thoracic of the spine. This can result in colic around the age of 5 weeks.
Newborns benefit greatly from a session as soon after birth as possible and again at 4-5 weeks old reducing the chances of colic.
