CST for Kids & Teens

Why use Craniosacral Therapy with kids?

There are so many reasons! Here are just a few:

  • Quick Response
    Because their physical and energetic systems are so sensitive, children respond quickly to treatment and easily maintain the benefits
  • Powerful Prevention
    Many common problems faced by adults have roots in childhood. Resolving obstructions and supporting proper alignment early on primes physical, emotional, and energetic systems for optimal development.
  • Gentle and Non-Invasive 
    Craniosacral touch is extremely gentle, totally non-invasive, and cannot “make” anything happen that is not in alignment with a child’s own inherent drive for balance.

Benefits of CST for Children

I see children for a wide range of issues and goals, from wellness tune-ups and injury healing, to resolution of birth trauma and support with learning or social issues.

Common benefits include:

  • Immune system support
  • Structural alignment
  • Better quality sleep
  • Improved digestion
  • Faster healing of sprains, strains, and injuries
  • Enhanced self-esteem
  • Reduced anxiety
  • More harmonious relationships
  • Improved mental clarity and focus
  • Easier emotional expression and balance
 

What to expect:

Infants often receive treatment while being held by me or a parent. Toddlers can also be held or play freely in my office, while older children may enjoy listening to an audio book while resting on the table. Home visits may be available for newborns who are not quite ready for the outside world.

 
My oldest daughter struggled with a lot of anger trapped in her body. I saw big physical and emotional shifts as she learned how to relax with Ko. The work gave her a choice whenever the anger returned because she knew what it felt like to be calm internally

During and after the session, your child will likely be calm and contented. It is also common for challenging dynamics to surface as they are released from his or her system.

Most parents notice a positive change beginning with the first treatment.

I bring my children in to see Ko and it helps them so much. If they are acting out or seem down and moody, a couple of sessions really helps them get back on a good track. I can’t explain it, but it’s great!
