Craniosacral Therapy for Children

Parenting is a tough job at the best of times. Children constantly present us with new challenges and childhood can be fraught with physical, emotional and psychological stresses, traumas and illnesses, for which there is often no satisfactory answer provided by mainstream healthcare. This can leave parents feeling frustrated, unsupported and helpless.

A safe and effective alternative for your child

Craniosacral therapy is a complementary therapy that provides parents with an often effective alternative to mainstream healthcare for their children. It is safe, gentle, non-invasive and drug free. Many of the physical, behavioural and learning conditions that affect children have their roots in the complications of their pre-natal, peri-natal and/or post-natal periods. 

Craniosacral therapy uses the sense of touch to sense physical, emotional, thinking and behavioural imbalances in a child's body, head and nervous system. The same gentle touch is used to release and balance tight tissues and stresses, disturbing emotional patterns and unhelpful thought processes.

Specialist Caniosacral expertise for Children

Peter Zealley is a pioneering craniosacral therapist and has over 20 years experience of working with and understanding children. He specializes in the treatment of children and babies and is the author of the book, 'Your Baby's Cry For Help'.

"My approach is a hands-on communication with your child. With my craniosacral therapy skills and natural perception I can often quickly sense what is troubling your child and when and how this has arisen. Treatment becomes the natural extension of this assessment process. I am confident working with the physical, emotional and mind issues presenting in children".

Children regularly respond well and quickly to craniosacral therapy.  Frequently 1, or 2, treatments can make a noticeable difference, though they may need more. Many children benefit from receiving craniosacral therapy evrey 6 months throughout their childhood and teenage years. Most children enjoy craniosacral therapy and look forward to coming back again."

Peter's method of working is relaxed and non-threatening and children respond well to him. A parent or carer must be present at all times and children do not undress, except for their shoes.

How can craniosacral therapy help your child?

There are many children's health issues that may be resolved by craniosacral therapy. Other conditions may be a part of who your child is; they cannot be taken away, but may be improved and managed more effectively with treatment.

In particular, good results are commonly achieved with the following conditions:

  • headaches and migraine
  • back or neck pain
  • muscle strains and joint injuries
  • effects of car accidents and other serious trauma
  • asthma and breathing difficulties
  • glue ear and associated hearing problems
  • stress-related conditions
  • emotional difficulties, such as anger, frustration and withdrawal
  • bereavement and grief sleep disorders, including nightmares and night terrors
  • poor co-ordination and clumsiness

Craniosacral therapy for children has also been shown to help improve and manage:

  • complications following head injury and meningitis
  • learning, concentration and behavioral disorders
  • dyspraxia
  • ADD & ADHD
  • dyslexia
  • epilepsy
