CST for Newborns

February 19th, 2015 | Posted by admin in

When I had my first daughter 21/2 years ago I noticed that when she
was sleeping or I put her in her car seat her head was always turned
to the right. Then I noticed tha she never turned her head to the
right. Eventually I noticed that when I would breastfeed she nursed
really well from my left side, but not my right. So I googled it. I
found on kellymom.com that craniosacral therapy can help with
breastfeeding. So I took her to see Linda when she was almost 2 months
old and it was amazing. First Linda basically showed me by applying
pressure to my head what she was doing to my baby. It was the lightest
touch. During the treatment I could see my daughter squirm and make
noises. Then she would just relax when the tension or whatever was
released. I immediately noticed the difference when I nursed her. She
no longer preferred one side to the other and when she slept she would
turn her head to both the left and right. The CST made such a big
difference with her eating habits and ability to gain weight because
she was able to nurse from both side. The treatment was short so Linda
said to come back for another treatment free of charge when I had
time, but I never did because the first one worked so well regardless
of the length of time.
The next time I went to Linda was to get a massage. I should probably
go in one day for just a regular massage because she does such a good
job, but so far I’ve only gone to see her when I have a problem ha ha
ha. I went to get a massage because I was so big and pregnant and my
back hurt so bad that sometimes at night I would literally crawl
upstairs on my hands and knees. The massage really helped. She really
concentrated on the parts of my back and hip that were giving me
trouble.
The third time I went to see Linda was for my second daughter. When
she was born, she got stuck in my pelvis and the doctor had to use
forceps to help get her out. She was also born face up instead of face
down. So her face was squished. I emailed Linda while I was in the
hospital because I needed her to see my baby. Her tear ducts were
clogged and she would breath mainly through her mouth. It was a
traumatic birth. So a week later Linda saw her. She did some Lymphatic
massage. She is no longer getting gunk in her eyes from clogged tear
ducts and breaths equally out of her nose and mouth. And I think she
is making better eye contact. I’m going to bring her back when the
swelling on her head goes down for CST. I can’t wait. I just think she
will be a happier baby. When I googled craniosacral therapy and
newborns I found some great site with lots of information for the
benefits of the therapy and newborns. Totally worth reading!
