CST for Kids & Teens
Why use Craniosacral Therapy with kids?
There are so many reasons! Here are just a few:
Because their physical and energetic systems are so sensitive, children respond quickly to treatment and easily maintain the benefits
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.
Commonly Addressed Conditions
Failure to thrive
Connection to purpose/direction
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:
Support of overall health and well being
Immune system support
Better quality sleep
Faster healing of sprains, strains, and injuries
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.
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.
