Childbirth is a huge experience for parents and baby. The baby, having spent months in the safety of the slow internal rhythms of the womb, suddenly through the process of birth arrives in this world; what a journey? It is a huge transition and while some babies adapt very well others find it a lot more difficult to settle in.
The gentle touch of its mother’s hands reflect the safety and comfort of the womb; not the womb in labour, the womb that embraced and loved.
Touch is the primary language with which to communicate. It is through our hands that we listen to and respond to the baby.
Like a butterfly landing, the gentle touch of CranioSacral therapy reassures the baby that it is safe to let go of any stresses and/or birth traumas. It supports the central nervous system so that the baby’s body systems can self correct, heal and move on naturally. Many congenital and acquired health challenges respond well to cranioSacral therapy and it can be used alongside other treatments i.e medical.
Dr. John Upledger – Developer of CranioSacral Therapy, has said:
“One of the best things we can do for our children is to have them begin life with a smoothly running craniosacral system; a removal of physical restrictions so that their body tissues aren’t burdened by destructive or traumatic memories and have clear energy fields. This can be accomplished with cranioSacral therapy”
