   Birth Trauma


A baby undergoes many possible stresses and shocks before, during and after birth:

  1. a long labour,
  2. a small space in the womb
  3. sharing the womb with other siblings
  4. compression of bone and muscle tissue
  5. the shock of its new environment after birth and the whole process of being handled by doctors and nurses.
  6. forceps delivery is without a doubt one of the most harmful procedures to affect the cranial bones and subsequently the auditory, visual and learning aspects of the brain.
  7. Caesarian Section Delivery -a suction on the head is often used to lift the baby out of the womb. The pulling action of the suction-vacuum distorts many of the cranial bones and also pulls on the neck.
  8. Even during normal delivery the neck may be gripped too tightly by the doctor. As a result the spinal chord will twist and affect various nerves going to certain parts of the body.
  9. the mother’s fear and frustration can be absorbed by the fetus. It has been established that even before birth a baby is aware of and sensitive to the thoughts and feelings of its mother and even others in close proximity.

Newborns and Infants
Gentle touch and balancing are wonderful gifts to give your newborn. It will be a foundation for how she/he perceives the world throughout the formative years.

  1. eliminates colic, fussiness and digestive problems.
  2. resistance to colds and infections
  3. removes obstructions to growth and mobility
  4. creates calmness and contentedness

   Post Dental Work:


Extractions, fillings, tooth implants, root canal, braces, biteplates or even a simple cleaning can put the mandibular joint out of balance and put a strain on various connective muscles in the mouth, neck and shoulders. Emotional tension held in the body also needs to be addressed. After dental work it is possible to develop:

  • Facial tics
  • Headaches
  • TMJ
  • Lowered Immune System leading to colds or flues
  • Canker sores
  • Lack of concentration
  • Blurred vision, dizziness
  • Sore neck

A Craniosacral Therapist can gently balance the jaw and check for misalignments or contortions in the mouth and adjacent areas.
