Craniosacral Therapy in Wall, NJ
Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on approach to healing that helps to release tension in the body and nervous system to improve whole-body health and performance.
Craniosacral Therapy has become increasingly popular in recent years because of its application for babies with tongue tie, lip tie, and cheek tie. By reducing and relieving fascial restrictions in the head, neck, jaw, and mouth and enhancing flow of Cerebrospinal fluid,
Craniosacral Therapy can help create “slack” in the oral tissues and help to both:
- Regain tongue function in children with no tie revision
- Restore proper stability and function post tongue tie revision.
By creating slack in these tissues, many children, whether they have a tissue revision or not , experience massive improvements in latching, feeding, and even other conditions such as reflux, colic, and constipation.
