Craniosacral Therapy Sessions
Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, non-invasive hands-on therapy that benefits whole body health, treats a multitude of conditions and is effective for infants, children and adults. It offers a gentle approach to relieving restrictions in the body and increasing our nervous system’s capacity for health, harmony and well-being.
The body naturally seeks homeostasis—and craniosacral therapy facilitates this balancing. When one experiences restriction or trauma, whether through a challenging birth or an injury or emotional shock to the nervous system, the body alters its priority from health to survival mode.
The sooner that trauma, shock and restriction is released from the body, the easier and smoother the healing process.
Craniosacral therapy during pregnancy allows a mother to access her inner resources for health, release restrictions and create balance in the body thus helping to co-create an optimal birthing experience for her and her babe.
During the postpartum period it offers the mother’s body the opportunity to reintegrate and find physical and emotional balance after birth.
For babies it promotes health and can minimise or eliminate the effects of birth trauma by releasing restrictive patterns in the body. Craniosacral therapy is extremely valuable for a baby who experienced a challenging labour and birth or is experiencing health issues. A spectrum of breastfeeding challenges can be treated with craniosacral bodywork including poor latch, reflux, colic, unwillingness to nurse or even painful nipples in mom.
Craniosacral therapy is even more effective for infants when the mother is simultaneously treated.
