CranioSacral Therapy is especially helpful for moms and babies to rebalance and feel better pre- and post-delivery. I remember feeling overwhelmed, depressed and tired all the time after my second son was born. It was a very difficult time for me, and if I had known about this very gentle therapy, I am sure it would have alleviated those symptoms. I see it every day in my practice, how relaxed people feel, just today someone said “this is very powerful, I feel so relaxed and rejuvenated at the same time.”
How does CranioSacral Therapy help with childbirth?
It significantly helps to relax and calm the mother and baby during pregnancy. It can release tensions within the baby in utero and allow for an easier birth. Post partem, CranioSacral therapy, relaxed for a better nursing experience, alleviates anxiety and postpartem depression. It also speeds post-delivery recovery.
This very gentle touch is famous for assisting newborns with colic, head shape balance, torticollis, and other tension release for greater comfort in body.
What about children?
CST is great for children throughout development. As children mature, CST can quickly relieve stress, anxiety, headaches, sports and other injuries, release strain and pain from braces. CST can also assist learning disabilities, autism and sensory processing disorder. (see Working Wonders: Changing Lives With CranioSacral Therapy, ed. by the Upledger Institute, or email for info.).
“If you can help children do well throughout development, it gives them a good foundation for adult life.” Dr. John Upledger, Founder of CranioSacral Therapy.
I am happy to assist with pregnancy, post partem for moms, and babies, children in both locations, Madison and Baraboo, Wisconsin. I look forward to treating this very special moment in the early stages of life that can be very stressful, but need not be.
