Publisher Comments:

Craniosacral Therapy for Children introduces a craniosacral therapy treatment protocol for babies and children up to 12 years of age. A gentle hands-on healing approach, craniosacral therapy releases tensions in the body in order to relieve pain, resolve trauma, and improve physical and emotional health. Author and craniosacral therapist Daniel Agustoni discusses the reasons for treating young children and for beginning treatment during pregnancy. He explains how the stress of birth can cause asymmetries and misalignments in babies' bodies that can lead to problems later in life: from suckling problems, abdominal colic, and fragmented sleep patterns to anxiety, hyperactivity, and ADD. Agustoni demonstrates how craniosacral therapy can also offset the effects of stress, trauma, and PTSD that may affect the growing child depending on his or her environment, biology, and temperment.

Enhanced with over 120 instructional photos and illustrations, the book's hands-on techniques are presented along with suggestions for interacting with parents, babies, and young children. The book discusses methods of evaluation and treatment following structural, functional, and biodynamic models. Engaging case examples describe the therapeutic results of the treatment, which include increased security and confidence, relaxation, support for the immune system, and a sense of well-being. An important resource for healthcare practitioners, this book is also useful for educators, parents, and caregivers interested in learning new ways to help their children.

About the Author

The founder and director of the Sphinx-Craniosacral-Institut in Basel, Switzerland, Daniel Agustoni has been practicing craniosacral therapy for sixteen years. In addition to craniosacral therapy, Agustoni has trained in classical and biodynamic massage, Myofacial Release®, conscious breathing, systemic family constellation, Gestalt therapy, Somatic Experiencing®, and treatment methods in the field of alternative medicine. With his extensive experience and education, Agustoni has developed his own approach called craniosacral_flow®, which has been designed to balance the different systems of the body and stimulate self-healing. He is the creator of the audio CD Harmonizing Your Craniosacral System: 17 Exercises for Relaxation and Self-Treatment (Findhorn Press, 2008).
