Craniosacral Therapy for Mothers and Babies in West Bridgford, Nottingham
Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on treatment that is particularly suitable for babies and mothers.
Even the most natural or easy births involve some degree of compression for the baby, who may be overwhelmed and take a while to adjust. Craniosacral therapy supports the baby’s system to deal with any residual shock or compression. If you’ve experienced a difficult or traumatic labour, treatment can support you and your baby to process the birth more effectively, and help you both to heal more completely and quickly.
I bought Hannah to see Philip the Craniosacral Therapist . Philip performed Craniosacral Therapy. He was so gentle. After the treatment Hannah was a different baby, she is a happy smiley baby. Thank you.
If you have experienced an interruption to the attachment with your baby – for example, if you’ve had some kind of intervention, including surgery – craniosacral therapy helps to calm the baby’s system and reduce the effects of shock.
Obviously, mothers also experience huge physical and emotional changes during pregnancy and labour. The sudden loss of the extra weight (of the baby) and rapid hormonal changes can lead to imbalances, particularly in the pelvic area. Craniosacral therapy can really help new mothers to restabilise, and adjust to their new lives and altered bodies.
Our craniosacral therapist, Philip Humphreys, is a highly experienced practitioner who has treated many babies and young children. Babies are treated either in your arms, or lying on a treatment couch, with you sitting close by. The treatment is so gentle that babies often fall asleep.
