CRANIOSACRAL & SHIATSU FOR BABIES
Many forces are exerted on the baby's body as they go through the birthing process. These forces can be held in the baby's body and may cause difficulties for the baby and those that care for the baby. Cranio sacral therapists undergo training aimed at developing highly tuned palpation skills which can enable them to feel and release restrictions in the body in a gentle and non-invasive way. We may work with innate rhythms, the delicate membranous system, fascia, fluids, cartilage and bone. Generally speaking, we tend to work in a more non-specific and less structured way than cranial osteopaths although the results may be the same. Difficulties that may be helped can include:
AGITATION & SLEEPLESSNESS & GENERAL DISTRESS
POST FORCEPS & VENTOUSE
LATCHING ON PROBLEMS & FEEDING PROBLEMS
POST BIRTHING DIFFICULTIES
CAESARIAN SHOCK OR APATHY
(eg cord around the neck, forceps/vent£ouse delivery, caesarean, induction)
Other common problems where treatments may be able to help are
TONGUE TIE and POST REVISION
TEETHING PROCESS (can be eased)
(eg kicking more with one leg, turning more to one side)
CRANIOSACRAL & SHIATSU FOR MUMS & MUMS-TO-BE
CraniosSacral & Shiatsu can be excellent for supporting mums and mums-to-be through pregnancy and following birth.
Baby Shiatsu is part of the Developmental Shiatsu programme so is much more than just adapting adult shiatsu for babies. Its main diagnostic is to identify key stages in a baby's development and work with how a baby moves through these stages. Picking up problems at these key developmental stages not only has the potential to relieve current problems, but can prevent future problems from occurring.
It can be deeply relaxing for both mum and baby. The sessions can include teaching mum to work on their baby in order to support the treatment(s).
