"After a difficult birth, my ten-week old daughter found it difficult to sleep and was colicky. After two sessions of craniosacral therapy, I found her sleep patterns and general demeanor greatly improved - I would highly recommend Peter Zealley’s treatment".

The benefits of craniosacral therapy for babies.

Many of the symptoms and behaviour patterns in babies are directly caused by the effects of their birth process. At least 95% of newborn babies retain some of the stress, mechanical strains or trauma from their birth, even from a perfectly natural delivery. Unfortunately, in most cases these tension patterns do not simply disappear. Unless your baby is treated effectively, he/she will just adapt to what she/he has experienced, often resulting in symptoms. Such symptoms include: excessive crying and screaming, inconsolable crying, poor sleep, feeding difficulties, digestive and breathing disturbances, arching and not wanting to be put down.

Craniosacral therapy is a gentle and often effective hands-on treatment, making it the ideal complementary therapy for treating newborn babies. It works by releasing the physical strains, compressions, stress and trauma effects retained in your baby’s body and nervous system that can arise during pregnancy, labour and from the process of birth, whether she/he was born by natural delivery or caesarian section.
