PEDIATRIC CRANIOSACRAL FASCIAL THERAPY (CFT)
This is a gentle blend of Craniosacral Therapy and Myofascial Release Techniques, developed by Dr. Barry Gillespie of The Gillespie Approach, designed to unwind and release accumulated fascial (connective tissue) strain. Strain can be caused by birth trauma, accidents, and emotional stresses overtime. This can have an impact with feeding, sleeping, digestion, development, and sensory processing.
A one hour session can be scheduled for this service and an exercise plan will be given at the conclusion of the appointment.
POSTPARTUM CRANIOSACRAL FASCIAL THERAPY & WOMENS HEALTH
The same modality is utilized with CFT as with the pediatric description above, but also includes specialty techniques for the postpartum woman. This would be myofascial release for womens health developed by John F. Barnes, PT. This service addresses many of the issues that can arise in the postpartum mother such as breast and pelvic dysfunction.
Myofascial Release is a gentle kind of therapy that helps to unwind tension in the connective tissue (fascia) surrounding our organs, muscles, joints, bones, and cells. Fascia is an all encompassing web of translucent substance that covers our entire body. A healthy fascial system can equal overall wellness both mentally and physically. This can also be extremely beneficial for mothers suffering with postpartum depression as well.
POSTPARTUM MASSAGE (ADULT ONLY)
Helps to increase breast milk production, reduce stress and swelling, anxiety, depression, hormone regulation, and post-delivery pain while improving sleep and overall wellness. A postpartum massage is a full body massage that occurs within the first 12 weeks after you have given birth to your baby.
