CranioSacral Therapy for Conception, Pregnancy & Birthing

Discover CranioSacral Therapy For Conception, Pregnancy and Birthing.

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) as developed by Dr. John E. Upledger in
1970's is a gentle hands-on approach that works through the craniosacral
system to alleviated a range of disorders and to improve health. Because
of the non-invasive nature of this modality, it has virtually no
negative side effects. The application of CST principles can be used to
facilitate the process of procreation from the initial thought of
becoming prospective parents to the successful delivery of the child.

All of the amazing changes that take place in an expectant mother's
anatomy show the beautiful design of her body, and how prepared her body
is to conceive and nurture a baby through the gestation period. This is
a wonderful example of the body's intelligence and why we should follow
its lead. This is also why CST works so well. Under the premise that the
human body wants to correct (heal) itself, and that both mother and baby
(fetus) know what needs to be undertaken to affect a successful
delivery, CST can be applied prior to conception, through pregnancy,
labor and delivery. This is empowering to the mother and child, as well
as to the father and family of the newborn.

As the pregnancy progresses, CranioSacral Therapy techniques are employed
which focus on the mother and baby as individuals concurrently while
functioning as one. This results have significantly demonstrated that
the process is facilitated and the outcomes are improved.

Complementing traditional methods of prenatal care with appropriate use
of CST may preclude the need for other more invasive techniques. CST may
also ease the recovery from necessary invasive procedures. Ideally, the
birth will be remembered as a wonderful experience and the "labor" as a
labor of love.

"A mother doesn't just 'give birth'; it is an interaction between two
human beings." - Dr, Harlan Ellis
