CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy for Babies: Birth trauma

How would you, as an adult, respond to a stressful event?

Your heart might race, your breathing may become shallow and rapid, your blood might drain from various parts of your body, you could feel tense and agitated, and there may be effects on your digestive system, from butterflies in the tummy, to nausea, vomiting or worse. Not pleasant! Some babies find the experience of birth a stressful event, and will react in the same way – with a racing heart, breathing changes, a tight diaphragm, muscular contraction, digestive shutdown and agitation. Luckily babies are very resilient, but some remain in this state of shock, and go on to display symptoms such as poor sleep, restlessness, distress, and an inability to “switch off”. Once the system is in shock, it makes coping with life difficult, making everything in life more of a struggle.

So what can help? CranioSacral therapy is a very gentle hands-on therapy which is particularly valuable for treating babies. The aim of treatment in these babies is to settle the craniosacral system, to allow the baby to calm down and to experience the feeling of being relaxed. This can have a profound effect – many parents have commented that they have never seen their baby so calm and peaceful. Once a baby is relaxed, it can feed more easily, its digestive system is able to function more efficiently, and it can settle into sleep.

CranioSacral therapy can very gently release any restrictions and distortions and enable a balanced and healthy growth of the skull, and of the developing brain beneath. The earlier the treatment, the more easily this will occur, and the more complete the recovery.
