Your baby can face several stressful challenges on his or her journey into this world and as a result have problems sleeping, latching on and feeding, and digesting all which can lead to restlessness. Craniosacral therapy can be tremendously beneficial for new-borns as it helps relieve these symptoms, making your baby more settled.
When babies feel safe, loved, and relaxed they can communicate their areas of tension. Using manual therapy or working energetically, I relieve this tension allowing your baby to feel more comfortable.
My skills and therapeutic experiences in the field of craniosacral therapy have contributed to the development of deep listening skills and an understanding of the subtle non-verbal communication processes and gestures used by babies and infants that is significant in this work.
One of the joys of working with mums and dads with babies and young children is that they tend to engage so well with this way of working. A crucial phase of any babies’ journey into being is the bonding process between mother and child which on occasion may be inhibited post birth. Providing an empathetic space for mother and child to ‘just be’ gives rise to the possibility of deepening this special relationship.
