Craniosacral Therapy (Cranial Osteopathy) for Babies and Adults

Performing craniosacral treatment on a baby

Craniosacral Therapy (Cranial Osteopathy) and the birthing process

Craniosacral therapy looks at the compressive forces experienced during birth as a result of the passage through the pelvis and the tight fit in the birth canal can cause imbalance in a baby’s system, even in natural and apparently problem-free births.

Many babies experience difficulties through the use of Ventouse extraction, forceps or Caesarean deliveries. Every type of birth has its own compressive patterns on a baby’s body, especially its head, and Craniosacral therapy performed by an osteopath, can go a long way to easing these patterns through the therapist’s light touch and receptive listening.

Common new-born’s problems like colic, torticollis, digestive issues, may be due to compression arising from birth trauma.

“Shanan was highly knowledgable and lovely to work with. He treated my five-day-old with such care. My baby had trouble nursing after a vacuum delivery affected his ability to suck, and Shanan’s treatment helped immensely and quickly. Definitely recommend.”

Shanan Sher is one of the senior Cranial Osteopaths ( Craniosacral therapists) in Israel. He has been working with adults children and babies for over 25 years.

For a cranial osteopath, treating young babies and their mothers is undoubtedly one of the most rewarding experiences. Babies (especially new-borns) tend to respond very quickly and effectively to treatment, especially for conditions like reflux, colic and sleeplessness.

Just as a seed can be nurtured with the smallest amount of physical guidance to grow into a healthy plant, so a baby, by the gentlest of encouragement, can be helped to release the stresses and trauma of the birth process and so avoid possible physical and psychological trauma later in life.

Cranio-sacral therapy (Cranial Osteopathy)can also be extremely helpful for mothers during pregnancy, labour and after the birth as the body readjusts. It is so gentle that it is suitable for all ages and also in fragile or acutely painful conditions.
