Craniosacral Therapy for Babies
Meet the Cranio Babies.
One of craniosacral therapy's most appreciated qualities is its capacity to rapidly resolve problems that many babies face.
Craniosacral Therapy can help if your baby is having breastfeeding problems with latching on, gaining weight or sleeping. She may be expressing labor and birth trauma you’re not even aware of. There are steps you can take right now to help your family enjoy being in love. When your baby rests better, everyone in the family rests better.
Treating your baby early with craniosacral can help him be healthier and more comfortable in his body. As you’re learning your baby’s signals, pay close attention to what makes him uncomfortable. If he hates being in a car seat or a stroller or a carrier, this may be a clue that his nervous system is compromised at his head and neck. When we work together, you’ll develop your own intuition and learn more about what your baby’s cries mean and what he is communicating.
Early treatment can also help with balance and coordination. The after effects of an ear infection can throw off the balance of your baby’s nervous system and interfere with coordination as she’s learning to walk. I can listen to her nervous system and help ease her into a healthful place. As her movement repertoire grows from stretching to rolling over to crawling and walking, craniosacral treatments can help set up healthful patterns that will continue to benefit your child as she grows and develops.
During the birth process, it is normal for the cranial bones to override each other as the baby's head molds to fit through the mother's pelvis. After birth, these overrides and other accommodations in the baby’s skull should not persist. If they do not correct themselves, they can interfere with proper cranial nerve function leading to colic, breathing, swallowing, digestive or sensory-motor impairments and more. Sometimes babies are injured in the birth process. The injuries may be both physical and emotional. CST can address these injuries as well as the effects of lack of normal mobility in utero, precipitous or prolonged labor, vacuum extraction, forceps or cesarean birth.

"Caitlin is so talented and passionate about what she does. A lactation consultant recommended my daughter have craniosacral therapy for some nursing issues we were having. My daughter also experienced very painful gas and colic symptoms.
I had tried everything! I noticed a huge improvement in my baby's comfort after our first session with Caitlin and couldn't wait for her next visit. She is so skilled at what she does and is very patient and loving with babies. Her technique is amazing to watch and is completely non-invasive.
My baby slept peacefully during each session. After the second visit, I felt like I had a different baby. She was so happy and calm. She had nearly no gassy episodes and she started nursing normally again. She was sleeping longer and better as well.
I plan to continue to use Caitlin's services for my baby and myself. I can't thank her enough and would highly recommend her."
