Service Description

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a safe and non-invasive treatment approach, which regularly helps children. The same gentle craniosacral listening touch used for the assessment and treatment of adults and babies is also employed with children. Young children usually love their craniosacral therapy and look forward to coming. Older children may be more reluctant, but once they become familiar with the unusual nature of the craniosacral approach and begin to experience the benefits, they like appointments too. Often one to two treatments can make a difference to a child, but they are more likely to benefit from several sessions. Many children benefit from receiving regular craniosacral therapy every 4 to 6 months throughout their childhood and teenage years. Young children tend to respond very well to the gentle re-balancing of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy. BCST can treat: *sleep problems *poor/ delayed development *anger/anxiety problems *noise sensitivity *poor coordination *chest infections/ conditions *change in behaviour following a fall or accident *autism *chronic ear infections Young toddlers/children are often treated while they are playing sitting on the floor or on a parents lap. Once the child is happy to lie on the treatment table, treatment will mainly be in lying. Older children usually still have a half hour session however depending on their needs this may have to be a one hour session which is charged at the adult rate. Including Family In the Sessions I see the powerful and loving bonds that children have with their parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, and others, and I know this is their key resource. That is why I include parents in the sessions by having them sit close by, touching, reading to, or playing with their kids while I work on them. I also encourage parents to get full sessions for themselves. That way, both parent and child are better able to mirror to each other that deeply relaxed sense of physical and mental integration that is the gift of BCST.
