How would you feel if your dreams of motherhood were shattered by an unsettled, crying, colicky baby? Well, it doesn’t have to be that way. Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy can to help babies labelled with colic and reflux and who are unsettled and difficult, to become eating, sleeping, playing bundles of joy for their parents.
Babies who frequently cry or scream for no apparent reason and for long periods of time are referred to as having colic. This is sometimes associated with reflux, which is the regurgitation of stomach acid, causing a burning feeling in the oesophagus. You may feel your baby has been given this label as your Health Professional doesn’t know the reason or the solution to the crying. Through Craniosacral Therapy, the Therapist can find the most likely cause of the irritability. This may be due to occurrences such as a difficult birth leaving strained muscles, nerve entrapment (causing digestive problems) or torsions in the bones of your baby’s skull. Just think how frustrating it must to be unable to talk and be in pain. That is why your baby voices its discomfort through crying and screaming. Finding the cause by using Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy can start your baby’s body on the road to recovery.
You can imagine the strain that having a constantly crying baby can put on the family. It is known that this can cause sleep deprivation, post natal depression, shaken baby syndrome and relationship issues for the parents. For this reason, Craniosacral Therapists can also offer the mother a treatment to help her deal not only with the stress of having an unsettled baby, but also to aid her body to recover from the rigors of pregnancy and birth.
When you take your baby to see a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist, the Therapist will talk to you about your pregnancy, labour and the days since your baby was born. Often the baby is treated while held in the comfort of your arms. The Therapist will gently place their hands on your baby. By using their hands, a Craniosacral Therapist can feel the movements of different types of tissues and structures in the baby’s body. These movements tell the Therapist where any problems may lie. Noticing these movement patterns helps to inform the baby’s body of how it is working and holding itself, so it can then make changes towards better health. Mothers are treated using the same gentle hands-on touch. There is no manipulation involved with Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy.
In Summary, there is an answer to help your baby become more settled. You don’t have to put up with a crying, unsettled, colicky baby and your baby doesn’t need to bear the discomfort any longer. Bring your baby in for a Craniosacral treatment by a Registered Therapist and start to enjoy a better motherhood experience with a more settled, happy baby.
