Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a gentle, safe and chemical-free therapy for every woman. Being a mother is the most wonderful experience in life, yet both physically and emotionally damanding.
With dramatic changes in the body and in relationships during pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum recovery, CST can be a valuable tool to help mothers and mothers-to-be to relax, to regain strength and confidence during all these life transitions.
Prenatal CST sessions enhance mother-to-be and her baby to prepare for the birth together calmly and pleasantly.
CST helps to realign the spine, pelvis and tailbone bones very gently. The improvement in the mobility of the mother's pelvis does not only relieve the aches and pains that are associated with pregnancy, but can also facilitate her baby to assume in an more ideal position for a timely and smooth delivery.
CST is profoundly relaxing and promotes free movement of all the body’s fluids systems including blood, lymph and cerebrospinal fluid. It helps rebalance both the energy and physical bodies, as well as optimize the self-healing capacities and immune systems of both mother and baby.
CST also calms the nervous systems and digestive system for both mother and baby. When the mother’s system is soothed and balanced during pregnancy, the baby gains tremendous benefits.
It is a natural response that a new mother devotes most of her own energy to nurture her new baby, even though she may not have completely recovered from the long labour, perineal pain, torn tissues, backaches, to name a few. At the same time, she needs to face the new challenges such as interrupted and insufficient sleep, breastfeeding problems, physical discomforts, emotional stress about baby’s health, mental exhaustion......
Therefore, adequate nurture and regular “tune-up” for new mothers is as important as treating their babies and it is highly recommended. Having a happy and healthy mum is an important key to the health of her baby and family.
CST can promote postpartum recovery. It helps to speed up a woman's adjustment to the changes created by pregnancy and delivery. The deep releasing effect facilitates healing and correction. Treatment can focus on structural realignment, releasing tensions in the body or emotional balancing, depending on the mothers' concerns and needs.
