Babies are our favorite patients. They arrive in our practice weary and wonderful and in need of therapeutic support to ease the pressures of the birth process. Labor can leave infants with a variety of uncomfortable somatic restrictions that frustrate them (and you) and cause disruption to their development. 


If you think your baby is struggling with birth related issues, we're here to help.

Craniosacral therapy can be particularly beneficial in treating newborns and infants. Tensions and restrictions in the baby's head, spine and body can result from various pressures experienced during late pregnancy and the forces of labor. These pressures can be increased by difficult labors, forceps or vacuum assisted births or emergency caesarean births). These restrictions can cause discomfort in infants, disturbed sleep patterns, difficulty nursing, colic and digestive issues. 

Signs your baby could benefit from Craniosacral therapy:

  • Your baby tends to lie “banana shaped”, always curved to one side

  • Your baby have an uneven head shape

  • Your baby tends to favor looking /turning their head to one side

  • If breastfeeding, your baby latches more easily on one side

  • Your baby has sluggish bowel function

  • Your baby seems more unsettled than you would expect

  • Your baby is having difficulty sleeping even after being fully fed, dry, burped

At what age can a baby have Craniosacral therapy?
