pediatrics craniosacral therapy

Pediatrics Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, non-invasive modality for re-balancing the body, which is why it’s suitable and beneficial for children and infants. This unique and innovative holistic treatment, founded by Dr. Upledger has proven to assist with reducing stomach aches, headaches, sleep disorders, birth trauma, colic, and supporting learning disabilities.

Infants typically respond well to Pediatrics Craniosacral Therapy. The birthing process can present challenges to both the child and family, and create significant lifelong impacts. The good news is that Pediatrics Craniosacral Therapy can serve to support and normalize a child’s structure, balance their nervous system, and resolve traumatic issues of the birth and childhood experience.

Results may vary for each child. It may take a few sessions to see the best results.  This is because, depending on the age of the child or infant, tension could date back to before they were even born. If we can treat a child early in life, we can prevent or resolve many conditions that can affect the child’s development abilities.  Early treatments with Pediatric Craniosacral Therapy can positively affect structural, sensory, learning, development, and behavioral disorders.

During treatment, Dali will not only work with the infant, but also the family.  By maintaining the contact and bond with the child and family, she will sync everyone’s craniosacral rhythm, which will inherently help the child release tension and come back into balance. 

The goal for these treatments is not to cure conditions or disorders, but to improve the symptoms, and to provide the infant or child a greater sense of comfort and ease. Conditions that Pediatrics Craniosacral Therapy may help with are: 

  • Phobias
  • Accidents and Physical Trauma
