Pediatrics Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy for Kids

One of my favorite modalities to offer children is Pediatric Craniosacral Therapy.  Due to the gentle and light-touch nature of the therapy, children respond really well to it.  In this day and age, when children are utilizing technology abundantly, sitting for longer periods of time, and spending less time outdoors, it’s common for their minds to become overstimulated.  This can take a toll on their health, physically and mentally.

How does Craniosacral Therapy for Kids work?

Craniosacral Therapy works with a child’s nervous system by intentionally focusing on their craniosacral rhythm, increasing the cerebrospinal fluid in the brain and spinal cord, and reducing tension in the “fight or flight” structures of the brain.  It can also release physical and emotional traumas stored in various areas of the body.  With children, this is really easy to palpate and alleviate within a few treatments.

At times, more treatments may be needed if a child has been diagnosed with any learning disabilities like autism, ADD/ADHD, or if they struggling with stress, anxiety, and/or depression. The reason for this is because some of their tension could date back to before they were born, or during the actual birthing process. Some of the benefits of craniosacral therapy may include improved management of emotions, elimination of ear infections, better sleep, reduced headaches and digestive issues, improved concentration, and an overall feeling of safety and well-being. Most children experience noticeable results immediately.
