How CranioSacral Therapy helped my baby to sleep better

At 6 months of age, Kristin was still waking 6-7 times a night and found it very hard to settle back to sleep. We were on our last legs with exhaustion.

She had also had problems breastfeeding, with a poor latch, preference for one side, as well as refusing to have any "tummy time". We had put all this down to personality, because she was a very contented baby otherwise and very healthy.

Her birth was very straightforward, although it was induced, so we thought nothing of it. Then a friend recommended we try cranio-sacral therapy with Carina. Admittedly, we were a bit sceptical at first, but decided to give it a try.

**We have not looked back!**

Carina found a number of interconnected issues, particularly in Kristin's neck, jaw, ear and head, which explained all of Kristin's 'symptoms'. With each session, we began to notice gradual improvements in her sleep patterns. Now after 6 sessions, over about 8-10 weeks, Kristin is very settled at night, waking once or twice, if at all, and settling back to sleep very quickly.

Now we understand how the induction may have negatively effected her and we understand how craniosacral therapy very gently treats these effects.

We can't recommend it enough!

Delighted that Kristin is doing so well. A lot of my parents are sceptical at first - and it's great when they approach the treatment with an open mind - and are delighted with the results!

Babies who have this condition generally benefit from a revisit every 3 months over the first couple of years of their life.It is important to use CST in a preventative manner - not just as a fix to a distressing condition.

Thanks again and all the best - Carina.
