My toddler had constipation for the last year
My son, Cian, who is 2 and a half years old has had constipation on and off for the past year. We didn't really notice it starting until he began to resist going to the loo - and it started to become painful over the past 6 months.
At first, we took him to his local Doctor who prescribed medication to help bowel movements. This worked - but the toilet-going was still very erratic and was still distressing for Cian. We changed his diet to help his digestion and that was also having some positive effect.
I heard about CranioSacral Therapy from a friend of mine - she had been to Carina for treatments with her 2 year old for her constipation and she was delighted with the results.
I must admit, I was very sceptical as I am a scientist by training but had not heard of craniosacral therapy - but I felt we were all out of options and had nothing to lose.
When Cian finished his first session of CST with Carina - he went to the toliet there and then in the clinic - a very positive sign! Over the next week, Cian went to the toilet every second day AND after the 2nd treatment, he went every day. I was thrilled with the results and Cians pain already seems like a far away (bad) dream!
As I undestand it, Carina releases restrictions along the spine and cranial bones using a very light touch. Cian sat up on a table and played with his toys while all this was going on. He was uncomfortable when he was touched in some areas of his head - this surprised me as it was such a light touch. This seems to have a very direct effect on conditions such as constipation.
I must admit, it is hard for me to understand just how it works - but I sure am glad that it does!
Thanks for all your help and good luck with the website, I'm sure there are lots of postive stories out there!
