Some parents are hesitant in exposing their babies to therapy or to any form of massage at such an early age. This is completely understandable, since a baby might seem to be so fragile and helpless. Having a better understanding of Pediatric CranioSacral Therapy will ease any anxieties you might have about this effective procedure.
There are circumstances where CranioSacral Therapy could be what is best for your baby. Here you will learn about the benefits of Pediatric CranioSacral Therapy, what is involved, and when you should see a CranioSacral Therapist for your child.
What is CranioSacral Therapy for Infants?
This type of therapy might be just what you need to help improve your child’s body and health. It is a hands on type of treatment meant to help with correcting any restrictions in the central nervous system. It is from problems with the central nervous system that certain neurological and sensory issues stem from.
Craniosacral therapy does not hurt the child’s body in any way. The child will not feel any form of discomfort at all with CranioSacral therapy.
Benefits of CranioSacral therapy
A number of developmental issues come from misalignment or compression within the central nervous system. Craniosacral therapy gently aligns everything and removes compression in the infant’s system. The best thing about this procedure is that it is all natural and does not involve any medication. Another thing that parents love about Craniosacral therapy is that they are involved – it is a wonderful source of connection between the parents and the child.

From the development inside the womb, up to the birthing process, both the mother and the child goes through a whole lot.
