Craniosacral Therapy for Children

Craniosacral Therapy for ChildrenCST is a fully clothed, light-touch treatment. Safe, gentle and non-invasive, It is well suited for infants, young children and teens. A number of behavioral and emotional issues can be successfully managed and resolved.

Conditions such as learning disability and autism spectrum disorders tend to respond well to regular treatment.

Results in Adults and Children

Results may include but are not limited to: detoxification; better self regulation and control; better physical and mental function; more focused attention; improved patience; better sleep; less aggression; improved communication; less facial and jaw tension; less physical and emotional tension and improved sense of overall well being and comfort. Craniosacral therapy also aids in the correction of dysfunction in the digestive and immune systems.

Brain Functioning

Irregular or insufficient flow of cranio-sacral fluid to the brain is a contributing factor in many forms of sensory, motor, mental and physical dysfunction and autism spectrum conditions. The therapist’s gentle pressure releases tissue restrictions that block the flow of CSF. Restoring the fluid “cushion” reduces pressure on the brain. Its sensitive tissues begin to relax, facilitating normal functioning or development of the brain and nervous system.

Emotions and Behavior

Craniosacral therapy supports the central and autonomic nervous systems through improved balance of the sympathetic (fight or flight) that increases fear and aggression, and the parasympathetic (rest & digest) that increases relaxation and cooperation.

Muscles, Body Organs & Systems

Health and function of every major body system is regulated by the brain and passed through central nervous system. Thus CST supports and sustains homeostasis (internal environmental stability). CST is shown to relieve muscular tension, chronic conditions and pain caused by trauma and everyday activities.

Craniosacral therapy is good for the entire family!

CST is not limited to chronic or serious conditions. It’s a wonderful, relaxing treatment for the whole body and mind. Craniosacral therapy clears stress, treats disease, injury or illness, and helps the body eliminate toxins from medication, diet or environment.
