Pregnancy and babies

CranioSacral therapy is very effective in helping the body to adapt to the mental, emotional, hormonal and physical stresses and strains taking place during pregnancy, and helps the mother prepare for childbirth. Babies benefit from treatment as soon as possible after birth, as problems of birth trauma can be addressed. I look forward to the day when all midwifery departments have a trained CranioSacral practitioner available to treat babies as they are being examined shortly after birth. This could prevent adverse strain patterns developing, and release physical and emotional trauma experienced during the birth process.

Common conditions which may be helped by CranioSacral therapy are-:


  • Crying, screaming and irritability
  • Feeding difficulties
  • Sickness, colic and wind
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Older Chlildren

  • Ear infections
  • Sinus problems
  • Learning difficulties and special needs
  • Headaches
  • Aches and pains





    CranioSacral Therapy and Dentistry

    Conditions of the face, mouth and teeth have a direct effect on the rest of the body. The bones of the face and mouth are intricately linked and articulate in relation to each other in a gentle and rhythmical way. This helps to maintain drainage of the sinuses and free passage of air through the nose. Any trauma to the face may restrict normal motion, and CranioSacral therapy after dental treatment may help to reduce the risk of developing restrictions.

    Problems can arise in the following situations-:

  • Orthodontic appliances
  • After extraction of teeth
  • Unequal bite

    Dentures and plates can restrict normal motion of the craniosacral system as do some braces and fixed appliances and can cause headaches, neck ache, back ache, irritability, lowered immunity, reduced concentration, clicking jaw and sinusitis. After the brace is removed it is good to have CST to help any strains to dissipate.

    Tempero mandibular joint dysfunction

    Painful clicking jaw can be caused by stress and anxiety, grinding the teeth, stresses through the face or teeth, strains during birth, and other general imbalances in the craniosacral system. In my experience jaw problems respond well to CranioSacral treatment which involves treating the whole system followed by gentle mouth work.

    CranioSacral Therapy and Surgery

    CST addresses fascial restrictions which may be the result of trauma, injury, accidents, falls and surgery. Adhesions and scar tissue due to surgery can be released during CranioSacral therapy resulting in relief from post operative pain.
