Children respond to therapy very quickly as they don’t have years of postural imbalances, and trauma to work through, and they are often more open to alternative therapies. They also fall a lot, and contrary to popular belief they aren’t “made of rubber”. Addressing an issue can assist in preventing an injury from becoming a pattern of dysfunction that becomes amplified over the years.
School age children suddenly have a lot of new information to process. In addition to school work, they are also learning about being social, they are being introduced to sports, and they are experiencing new physical environments. That is a lot to process for any kid! If your child has any Sensory Processing issues then you already know how all this new information can easily put them over the edge. Children often show stress by being overly active or having a lack of focus or being overly emotional. Craniosacral is very beneficial in helping the brain and body to process information in a more organized manner, while also restoring balance and calm. It can address posture, and muscle imbalances due to sports, and play, and can be extremely beneficial if your little one is having frequent meltdowns. Because children play hard and fall often, it is a good idea to bring your kids in for a tune-up on a regular basis to prevent any long term patterning or issues, while supporting whole body health, and instilling the habit of self care in them. Children receiving these holistic therapies grow in understanding themselves mentally, physically, and emotionally, and as parents we can take pride in facilitating a healthy lifestyle in them.
