Craniosacral therapy is great for everyone, not only after birth, but if you have had a not so gentle birth or a c-section, or an assisted conception (IVF), you and your baby would definitely benefit more. Problems such as pelvic pain, urinary incontinence, breastfeeding issues, postpartum anxiety and depression can be addressed with this treatment.
Most of the times, a difficult labor can bring on breastfeeding challenges. There might be some tension or tightness in baby’s head, neck, and shoulders, or an emotional trauma. A gentle touch of Craniosacral therapy can help release them and resolve breastfeeding issues. Sometimes, they will go through what we call “rebirthing” during a treatment, which allows them to go through the cardinal movements of birth as they had in their blueprint but weren’t able to actually experience it during labor and birth. It’s like finding their missing piece of their puzzle! And after that, many breastfeeding challenges, sleep issues and/or fussiness might resolve.
I’ve merged my lactation consultant expertise with this modality and have been able to help moms with milk supply and blocked duct. It is just amazing!!
I also offer a unique package with my mentor, Brenda Pulvermacher, for mom and baby together. Brenda will give baby a treatment, while I am either giving mom a treatment. I can’t rave enough about this tandem treatment. The cost of the tandem treatment with Brenda is $160.
