Biodynamic Cranio Sacral Therapy (BCST) uses gentle non-invasive touch and as such it is a very suitable and effective therapy for babies.
Parents commonly bring their baby for BCST in the first weeks following birth. This is particularly helpful if the labour was prolonged and/or the birth difficult. The baby’s Mother and/or Father will usually be invited to be part of the session and as the baby responds to treatment, this shared experience can deepen the bonds within the new family.
BCST is beneficial even if the pregnancy and birth were trouble free.
It can offer support for:
- Establishing and supporting breastfeeding
- Developing good sleeping patterns
- Early infant feeding difficulties
- Unsettled anxious babies
- Torticollis (wry neck)
- Bonding with parents
Mothers and babies often come for problems associated with traumatic births. In this case it is particularly supportive if both Mother and baby recieve treatment. BCST is a gentle non-invasive therapy that facitilates the release of tension, fear and anxiety, restlessness, irritation and anger that may be held in the body enabling both Mother and baby to settle into ease and bond more easily.
Babies may be cuddled and fed during treatment and/or played with by their parents and the therapist.
If you have an queries as to how BSCT might be supportive for you or your baby please feel free to call Grainne to discuss how it might be of benefit.
