CST for New Mothers

       Cranial Sacral Therapy for Women during Pregnancy, Birth and Postpartum

Cranial Sacral Therapy  for New Mothers is gentle positive touch and nourishing to both mother and child.  CST can provide relief to the discomforts associated with carrying a child.  A woman experiences many changes as she becomes a mother.  Therapeutic touch during this time has been shown to increase a woman’s ability to nurture and give her infant positive, loving touch.  As her body transforms physiologically, it is important for her to receive emotional, mental and physical support.

These therapies can dramatically improve the health, well being and alter behavior in both mother, child and other family members.

Cranial Sacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system –  comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.   Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, the practitioner releases restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.  By complementing the body’s natural healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.  CST is a gentle and non-invasive form of bodywork that mobilizes soft tissue and improves health.
