CranioSacral therapy (CST) is a technique developed by an osteopathic physician to help gently release restrictions in the body and balance the central nervous system. By releasing restrictions and promoting balance, CST helps improve body function and quality of life.
CST is beneficial to people of all ages, however, because CranioSacral is gentle and non-invasive, it is particularly appropriate for infants, children and pregnant women.
In pregnancy, CST can help improve discomforts such as round ligament pain, back pain, indigestion and sacrum pain. It can also promote relaxation and a general sense of well-being during a time when a woman’s body is rapidly changing.
For infants, CranioSacral can relieve colic, ear aches, general fussiness, constipation, breastfeeding difficulties, and symptoms related to tongue tie. Babies who have experienced a precipitous birth, a long labor, Cesarean birth, or instrumental delivery (forceps or vacuum) can greatly benefit from CST.
As a CranioSacral therapist with several years of experience, I began my practice working with infants and I specialize in infants who have or had a tongue tie. But I enjoy working with clients of all ages and often have entire families come to me for CranioSacral therapy.
