Craniosacral Therapy for Mother and Babies

Because its such a gentle treatment, CST has a good reputation for its effectiveness in helping women in pregnancy and for many of the ailments of babies.

Treatment involves massaging and touching the the bones around the skull in order to minimize pain, promote growth, and help babies recover from birth trauma. It helps by relieving the pressure and tensions in the baby's body.

CST is a powerful therapy with huge benefits for both Mother and Baby. Many mothers have found it to be highly effective at helping them adjust physically and emotionally through the changes that pregnancy brings and in the preparation for the labour itself. 


Many symptoms experienced by babies can be the direct result of disharmony during pregnancy, labour and delivery.

Craniosacral Therapy


Craniosacral therapy is a subtle and profound healing, using the light touch.

In a typical craniosacral session, you will usually lie fully-clothed on a treatment couch. The therapist will make contact by placing their hands lightly on your body and tuning in. It supports your body’s inherent ability to balance, repair and heal itself.

It developed from an American osteopath, Dr William Sutherland in the early 1900s. He discovered intrinsic movements of the bones in the head and his further research revealed different rhythms in the body. He inferred, from further observation, and later went on to demonstrate to his satisfaction, that these movements are inextricably linked with mental and emotional health and that restriction of these movements corresponds to a reduction of the natural capacity to self-heal.
