After the loving support of mother and father, the best way to help your baby through the early stages of life is give them a craniosacral therapy session. During birth, because plates of the cranium are not fully formed, they squash together so the head gets smaller in order to squeeze through the birth canal. It is like a flower closing up at night. After they have been born the skull “pops back into shape” like a flower opening in the morning sun. A craniosacral therapy treatment will support this flowering.

Although it is difficult to prove the effectiveness of chiropractic and craniosacral therapy, and there have been no large scale randomised controlled trials, many mothers swear by the combination of these techniques.

Even if you have a healthy baby, I believe that a gentle hands on assessment and treatment will have untold benefits that will have positive repercussions for the whole of your child’s life.
