CRANIAL SACRAL: Babies, Children and Adults

Cranial Sacral (CS) is a very gentle, non-invasive, fully clothed hands-on therapy. It focuses on our central nervous system, and our energy and fluid bodies, to enhance the health in our system.

Combined with Somatic Pre- & Perinatal Psychology, Energy Healing and Developmental Attachment, CS heals and resolves womb and birth imprints and trauma. This work is available in video sessions.

CS unwinds and settles our nervous system, resolves and integrates trauma and welcomes the soul’s essence into deeper embodiment.

Thank you again and again for all of your support during our precious prenatal time. You helped us create a safe and cozy nest for our little one, and for all of us. Our work with you set the stage for our baby to thrive. She is so content and joyful! Our 12 year old daughter also benefited from your parenting support, as we transitioned into our new family, and moved towards our birth.

Cranial Sacral for Babies:

Babies can have much to share with us about their creation journey. Cranial Sacral supports integration through deep somatic listening, empathy and very gentle touch allowing baby to tell her story and release what is held in her system.

CS helps if your baby is:

  • Fussy or colicky
  • Having digestive issues
  • Crying a lot or crying inconsolably (trauma crying)
  • Having feeding or sleeping issues
  • Unable to settle
  • Uncomfortable in his/her body
  • Suffering from stress or trauma
  • Grieving a loss (prenatal bereavement, separation after birth, twin loss, etc.)
  • Unable to relax and rest deeply
  • Disconnected (not attaching fully, not present in their eyes/body)
  • Challenged by a stressful womb or birth experience (including medical interventions)

When babies get help early on they can reach their full potential and meet life feeling integrated and embodied, with a regulated nervous system.

Home visits available for newborns in Bristol, UK or if mum is incapacitated and unable to meet in person. This option is suspended during Covid, call me for updates.

A Baby's Story: The first 2 months all our son did was nurse, sleep, and scream. Our journey to conceiving, pregnancy, and birth were very stressful, and our son was clearly affected by the stress and trauma. We tried everything! I watched other mom’s calm their babes in arms, and felt so terrible that our son was suffering, and not at peace. It was affecting my health, my marriage, and my ability to bond with my son; he yet to have a quiet, alert moment and was distressed 24/7. Our midwife referred us to Karen, and everything changed! Karen was able to tune in to aspects of pre-conception, pregnancy, and birth that had affected our son, and support him to process, express, and release his emotions. Her gentle bodywork helped unwind the tension in his body. It was difficult to witness his emotions and feel unable to comfort him, and it was exactly what he needed. He expressed all of his fear, anger, and grief, just like adults need to express things that they experience. Our baby literally transformed overnight after the first appointment; and for the next week did not cry at all! We continued so that he could express, and release, other experiences and emotions, and to this day we have a happy and delightful baby! We could not be more grateful for Karen’s work; the safe and loving space she provides for healing, her expertise at sensing what a baby needs to release, and her facilitation of the process.

Cranial Sacral for Children:

Helps children with:

  • Unwinding tension, stress and anxiety and building resources
  • Slowing down
  • Sleep issues
  • Settling the nervous system (unable to be calm, stop or rest deeply)
  • Unresolved issues, stress or trauma
  • Hyperactivity – (A revved or anxious nervous system, sometimes caused by Pitocin, and by womb and birth imprints)
  • Feeling ungrounded and off-centre (banging into objects, not finding their feet, scattered energy, unable to focus)
  • Difficult or stressful womb or birth experiences (see Family Support: Womb & Birth Play for Children)

Depending on the age of the child and their ability to be still or lay down I may combine CS with play. After a few sessions wiggly younger children may be able to be still for longer periods of time.
