What is CranioSacral and How will it help your child
Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on healing modality that focuses on the wave-like rhythmic pulse that goes through the entire body. This therapy stems from osteopathy, which is an approach that emphasizes the role of the musculoskeletal system in health and disease.
CranioSacral Therapy is based on the concept that our body is self-healing; if our mind, body, and spirit are aligned as ONE, our body will be in perfect health and balance.
CranioSacral Therapy releases restrictions around the brain and spinal cord, thus allowing our body to self-heal and self-correct. There are no side affects from CranioSacral Therapy; the practictioner creates a loving and safe environment for the client to begin their self-healing process.
Throughout the journey of life, we encounter and endure stress, strains, and trauma that become trapped in our bodies. When our body holds onto the stress, strains, and trauma instead of releasing it, our tissues and fluids are no longer in harmony, thus our core body system becomes compromised. When there is disharmony in the body this will result in dis-ease in our body and symptoms of pain, discomfort, emotional, physical, and behavioral issues will arise.
CranioSacral Therapy can assist with the following:
- digestive issues
- body jerks
- negative behaviors
- adjusting to change
When there is decompression on the Cranium (head), your child might experience the following symptoms:
- Sensory issues
- Delay in speech
- Lack of eye contact
- Highly Interverted
Many children on the Autistic Spectrum experience the above symptoms and with CranioSacral Therapy the Cranium will begin to expand and contract allowing the tissues and fluids to release, relax, and flow without restriction.
How CranioSacral works for Autism (and other behavioral and emotional issues)
- Restores autonomic nervous system’s flexibility and adaptability
- Enhances flow of blood and fluids throughout the body
- Improves the internal environment for the brain, spinal cord, and central nervous system
