CranioSacral Therapy can help your child overcome congenital and acquired health challenges and prevent new ones from occurring. As the control center of the body, the central nervous system (CNS) influences every other major body system and function. So problems in the CNS can cause a wide range of sensory, motor or neurological disabilities.
By supporting the CNS and releasing restrictions throughout the body, CranioSacral Therapy has been shown to bring about profound healing. And because it’s so gentle, non-invasive an virtually risk-free, children of all ages can benefit from this essential therapy.
Early Intervention Benefits
It’s widely recognized that in certain instances, the birth process can generate mild to severe CNS abnormalities. CranioSacral Therapy carried out in the delivery room or within the first few days of life can potentially reduce a wide specturm of health challenges, many of which might not otherwise become apparent until the child is in school. It can even address problems with head shape and skull-bone override, naturally.
Many congenital and acquired health challenges also respond well to CST. It has shown to be effective at improving and maintaining a healthy immune system and because of its gentle, non-invasive qualitites, it seamlessly accomodates other therapies delivered by early-intervention medical teams.
