Hello- Craniosacral is great for supporting babies to relax their nervous system, promote balanced sleep and ease digestive distress. The craniosacral therapist is skilled at feeling this subtle movement and areas of restriction in the skull, spine, sacrum, joints and muscles. Areas of restriction lead to decrease in nerve transmission, flow of vital fluids and then to symptoms of pain and discomfort. These areas of restriction lead to stresses of the system and contribute to dysfunction and poor health. The touch is extremely gentle and sensitive, so your appointment will be relaxing and enjoyable. I work with babies often and see great results with craniosacral. It just helps the body have more capability to create balance. I treat babies while they are in mama's arms so it is more relaxing for them. You can check into a Naturopathic doctor or Osteopathic doctor in your area who does this type of physical medicine. So profound for supporting babies.
