Craniosacral Therapy (CST) For Infants
What Can Craniosacral Therapy Do For Infants?
As a natural part of the birth process, the bones of the skull overlap slightly to make passage through the birth canal easier. This slight overlap usually resolves over time, but if it is extreme or persistent, it can cause problems with nerve compression. This nerve compression can affect babies in a myriad of ways including all manner of feeding issues, gastrointestinal discomfort and generally fussy babies.
CST is an excellent, gentle therapy for babies adjusting after a particularly difficult birth, or who were born with complications or injuries, or as regular health and wellness care for your newborn.

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a form of manual therapy which has evolved from osteopathic roots. CST uses an incredibly gentle touch, usually around five grams of pressure (the weight of a nickel) to manipulate the movement of the bones of the skull and the flow of cerebrospinal fluid to greater enhance the mobility, balance and function of the body. The body seeks balance, and needs mobility. When parts of the body don't move independently of their neighbors, pain and loss of function can result. This type of therapy is done fully clothed, and is so gentle it is an excellent choice for babies and small children.
