Free newborn baby CranioSacral Therapy session

We are offering a free first session of preventative CranioSacral Therapy (CST) to all new born babies who may have unresolved birth traumas.

Childbirth can be challenging for both a mother and a baby, more so for the baby as there are numerous potential factors that can cause shock, which in turn can give rise to the potential for long term affects for the child.

New-borns that may have merely become a little misaligned during their pregnancy journey or faced the challenges of assisted birthing can receive the positive and nurturing effect of CST. Therefore, CST supports the incredible inbuilt speed and efficiency and self control abilities of the child.

A wide variety of healthcare professionals from osteopaths, doctors, etc. to CranioSacral Therapists use CST for its positive effect on so many body functions.

For example, if your baby, due to their traumatic delivery is struggling to sleep, this non-invasive therapy is a gentle alternative to help with settling, relaxing and supporting the continuous bonding relationship.

Recently a mother brought her new-born baby Katie in for a treatment. Katie had had a forceps delivery and was showing the effects of this. Katie’s range of movement to rotate her head left to right were restricted. Facial remnants of the forceps were present and she was very unsettled.

Following the treatment Katie moved her head with ease to either side, the slight flat head she had disappeared and the marks on her face lessened with time.

Katie is now a very happy, bright little one who is sleeping much better.

CST can also help with common problems in new born babies such as colic, sucking problems and respiratory difficulties, which may be due to compression arising from birth trauma. These can sometimes develop into problems later in life such as depression, migraines, sinusitis, spinal and pelvic pain.

CST is not a replacement for appropriate medical care and consultation with your medical practitioner is recommended if there are any concerns.
