Why use Craniosacral Therapy with kids?
There are so many reasons and here are just a few:
* Quick Response
Because their physical and energetic systems are so sensitive, children respond quickly to treatment and easily maintain the benefits
* Powerful Prevention
Many common problems faced by adults have roots in childhood. Resolving obstructions and supporting proper alignment early in primes physical, emotional, and energetic systems for optimal development.
* Gentle and Non-Invasive
Craniosacral touch is extremely gentle, totally non-invasive, and cannot "make" anything happen that is not in alignment with a child's own inherent drive for balance.

What to expect:
Infants often receive treatment while being held by me or a parent. Toddlers can also be held or play freely in my office, while older children may enjoy listening to an audio book or relaxation music while resting on the massage table. Home visits may be available.
During and after the session, your child will likely be calm and relaxed. It is also common for challenging dynamics to surface as they are released from his or her system.
Most parents notice a positive change beginning with the first or second treatment.

"I bring my children in to see Jessica and it helps them so much. If they are acting out or seem down and moody, a couple of sessions really helps them get back on a good track. I can't explain it, but it's great." - H.S.
