-- New parents may wish to consider a craniosacral therapy evaluation and treatment. Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a very gentle, non-invasive approach that will locate and dissipate any stress or structural strain that occurred during the birthing process. CST practitioners use gentle contact to evaluate the craniosacral system by testing for the ease of motion and rhythm of cerebrospinal fluid. Simple manual techniques are then used to release restrictions anywhere in the structure, fascia or fluids.
With any delivery, common trauma includes compression of the head and spine. The critical Atlas-Occipital joint, cranial base, cranial bones and intracranial membranes receive and may retain incredible stresses. Compression can negatively influence function of the brain stem, cranial nerves and spinal cord, and may inhibit cerebrospinal fluid flow, crucial to the delivery of nutrients to and removal of metabolic waste from the brain. Simply put, when tissue and systems are confined and compressed, they just don’t work as well.
