Pediatric
CranioSacral Therapy

Whether it is nursing issues, reflux, sleep issues, colic, behavior, attention or other issues of childhood, the gentle, non-invasive work of CranioSacral Therapy can facilitate amazing changes. It is a holistic, drug-free approach to health that recognizes and supports the shifts the child needs to make within their body for comfort and wellness.

David is wonderful with newborns and infants, as well as their moms during pregnancy. Our small ones have not lost their connection to their deep internal healing mechanisms and CST is a very effective method for accessing this system. Lasting changes are often reached in a very short time with babies and small children.

    Parents often seek out CranioSacral Therapy for their babies:
  • Challenges at birth – long labor and pushing, use of instruments, C- Section
  • Breastfeeding challenges – tongue tie, lip tie, poor latch, need for nipple shields
  • Colic and tummy concerns
  • Fussy, grumpy baby
  • Torticollis – baby’s head tends to only lay to one side
  • Unhappy baby
  • Sleep issues
  • Head shape concerns
  • Simple desire to improve wellbeing for the baby

"First session of craniosacral therapy for my son. I'm still wrapping my head around the technical terms of what CST is but to SEE what it did for my son in just that one session was wonderful. He was so relaxed. And what a happy (and hungry) little boy afterwards! We are very excited to continue our sessions!" ~A.W.

"I could not ask for more tender and loving care of my twins, The changes that I have had and seen within my daughters physically has been a healthy and grounding start to a better future. We will always be within their care, even if the drive becomes longer than our current two hour excursion each way." ~K.H. More Client Reviews
