Infant’s Health

Infants suffer from stress when they are being brought into a new environment to adapt. They experience discomfort, pain, anxiety, annoying sensations, inflammations, infections, reactions to the environment that lead to many disorders or developmental problems.

Infants have many health issues and the body’s self-healing mechanism can be supported through Craniosacral Therapy, Massage Therapy and Myofascial Release. This helps to reduce pain, restriction, susceptibility to infection, inflammation, poor circulation and poor development.Infants can respond positively and experience faster recovery from these therapies.

Infants don’t have many years of habitual attention, emotional baggage and the complications that adults may have. By treating their problems at the earlier stages of their life you will be preventing problems from developing further.

Early evaluation and treatment of infants is recommended as colic, feeding difficulties, digestive problems, respiratory problems, muscle floppy and low muscle tone could often be quickly reduced or eliminated.

Success cases:
 
1. A 3 months old baby boy, his head tipped to left side and he could only lie on his left side. He would cry when his Mom tried to turn his head to the opposite side. The shape of his head was slightly asymmetry. This we call Torticollis. This problem should be corrected preferably at an earlier stage of life. With a few treatments, the baby boy was able to lay on both sides freely. Eventually the condition of head asymmetry would have a great chance to be self-corrected.

2. A 2 year old boy had heart murmurs, history of multiple seizures, his breathing was very hard and loud, his nose stuffed with mucus, eyes watering, he suffered constant constipation with large abdomen, and he was grinding his teeth at night very loud. After a few treatments, his breathing was much easier, his running nose and watering eyes nearly stopped and the stuffy mucus began to clear up. He was no longer grinding his teeth, and his bowel movements became normal. He looked happier and talked much easier.

3. An 18 month boy, his nose was blocked and he had to breathe through his mouth. It became very hard and laborious work for him to breathe, because his neck and upper body muscles worked hard to assist his breathing and it also put difficulties on his speech. After a couple treatments, this hard labor work of breathing largely subsided and he was breathing mostly through nose, his speech made easier and his language rapidly developed after.
 
Subsequently, he had a fever, he was weak and drowsy. During that one treatment, his fever immediately went down, he bounced back right away and was running around after the treatment.
