Cranial Sacral for Babies:
Babies can have much to share with us about what it was like for them to make their epic journey into life. Cranial Sacral healing supports integration through deep listening, empathy and very gentle touch, allowing baby to tell her story and release what is held in her system.
This healing work helps if your baby is:
- Fussy or colicky
- Having digestive issues
- Crying a lot or crying inconsolably (this is 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 (cesarean section, induction, other medical interventions, long or short labor, etc.)
When infants get help early they are supported to reach their full potential and are able to meet life feeling integrated and embodied, with a fully functional nervous system.
Home visits are available for newborns in the Santa Rosa and Sebastopol areas or if mom is incapacitated and unable to come to my office. Call me to discuss this option.
If you are unable to pay for a session within my sliding scale Sweet Pea once-monthly by-donation/free Cranial Sacral clinic is in Santa Rosa, CA. Go to my forms page and fill out the appointment sign-up sheet (which includes the clinic dates) and the child intake form.
There are also monthly free baby clinics alternately in Oakland and San Francisco. Contact Holly Edson email@example.com for information and appointments.
Cranial Sacral for Children:
Helps children with:
- Unwinding tension, stress and anxiety
- Connecting their body-system to its inherent health
- Slowing down
- Sleep issues
- An unsettled nervous system (unable to be calm and/or rest deeply)
- Unresolved issues held in his/her body-system
- Hyperactivity – (A revved or anxious nervous system can keep them continually active and unable to let down. This can sometimes be caused by Pitocin, and by womb and birth imprints)
- Feeling ungrounded and off-center (banging into objects, not finding their feet, scattered energy)
- Aches and pains
- Difficult or stressful womb or birth experiences – (If there has been high stress or trauma during this period go to the Womb & Birth Play for Children page)
Depending on the age of the child and their ability to lay on the massage table for treatment I may combine the Cranial Sacral healing session with play. Play is the natural organic language of children. After a few sessions younger children who can be more active and wiggly may be calm enough to lie on the table for longer periods of time.
Cranial Sacral for Adults:
- Deep relaxation
- Aches and pains
- Unwinding tension, anxiety and stress
- Imprints held in the body that cause discomfort or pain
- Bringing your nervous system to a calm regulated state (shifting away from anxiety and mind loops, etc.)
- Unresolved issues held in the body-system
- Feeling ungrounded and off-center
- Connecting your body-system to its inherent health
- Self-care and maintenance
