CST for Children

Creating a Lifetime Of Good Health

Childbirth is a journey like no other. For the mother and father it is one of wonder, excitement and the unknown. For the child it can hold all the rewards and risks that a new life offers.

Thankfully, for the babies and children today, there is a gentle form of therapeutic touch that can help them enjoy a lifetime of good health. It’s called CranioSacral Therapy and it can help your child overcome congenital and acquired health challenges and prevent new ones from occuring.


 

Why CST can be helpful?

CranioSacral Therapy is a light-touch therapy shown to be effective in supporting the central nervous system so that your child’s body can self-correct and heal naturally.

As the control center of the body, the central nervous system influences every other major body system and function. That’s why problems here can cause a wide range of sensory, motor or neurological disabilities.

By supporting the central nervous system and releasing restrictions throughout the body, CranioSacral Therapy has shown to bring about profound healing. And because it is so gentle, non-invasive and virtually risk-free, children of all ages can benefit from


How is CST perfomed?

A typical CranioSacral Therapy session takes place in a quiet setting with the child resting at ease on a massage table or even engaged in play.

Using a light touch – generally no more than the weight of a nickel – the therapist monitors the rhythm of the fluid that’s flowing around the central nervous system to detect potential problems. Delicate hands-on techniques are then used to release any tensions that may be affecting your child’s brain and spinal cord.

A session can last from 15 minutes to more than an hour. The result is a central nervous system free of restrictions and a body that is able to return to its greatest levels of health and performance.


The Benefits of Early Intervention

It is widely recognised that in certain instances, the birth process can generate mild to severe central nervous system abnormalities. CranioSacral Therapy carried out in the delivery room or within the first few days of life can potentially reduce a wide spectrum of health challenges,many of which might not otherwise become apparent until the child is in school. It can even address problems with head shape and skull-bone override, naturally.

Many congenital and acquired health challenges also respond well to CranioSacral Therapy.It has shown tobe more effective at improving and maintaining a healthy immune system and because of its gentle, non-invasive qualities, it seamlessly accomodates other therapies delivered by early-intervention medical teams.
