Paediatric CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy is particularly valuable for babies and children since their bodies are malleable. They can correct easily and quickly because they have spent less time organising themselves around their physical and emotional restrictions. Left untreated, these restrictions can take more time and effort to correct in adulthood, causing pain and dysfunction in the interim.

  The birth process itself can be as challenging and demanding to baby as it is to mother. Many babies will have experienced some kind of unnatural stress or interference by the time they are born.

One function of a natural birth seems to be to give baby its first massage as it travels down the birth canal. All the muscles are worked, joints articulated and the cranium (skull) is squeezed and shaped. In some newborns the cranial plates that are squeezed remain overlapped in places and can interfere with proper cranial nerve function leading to colic, breathing, swallowing, digestive or sensory-motor impairments and sometimes babies are injured in the birth process.  A CranioSacral Therapy practitioner can help rectify this and other stresses that could impact on circulation to the brain and possibly other functions essential to baby’s optimal health and development.

Testimonials

I highly recommend Patricia to anyone who has a really unsettled baby. After just a few sessions with her Amari is a different baby! So much happier and chilled out. A lot less crying and happier to go to others for a cuddle now too! Best thing I could have done and wish I’d found her sooner! Thank you!   ~Tal

I brought my daughter M to you when she was born as she had a compressed spine and colic. The work you did was amazing.  ~Jem

I was sceptical at first, but it made such a huge difference and our little girl (4 months old) is so much happier. Myself and my husband noticed an instant change and even the family noticed. Cannot rate Patricia enough or thank her enough for helping.  ~ J

You treated C (5 years old) a couple of months ago for her incessant visits to the toilet. Well, the problem has completely gone and I have done nothing else but visit you those two times. I’m really pleased and as it was a gradual improvement that has lasted a long while, I just wanted to let you know.  She is much happier overall and does remember coming to see you and why. She says that your stones [I sometimes allow children to choose a stone or crystal to hold during a treatment] made her better so there you are!   ~Ang
