Banyen's Description: 

Craniosacral Therapy for Children introduces a comprehensive protocol for the treatment of expecting mothers, babies, and children 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. Through the stages of conception, pregnancy, birth, and development, therapist Daniel Agustoni demonstrates how Craniosacral Therapy counteracts the effects of prenatal and perinatal trauma to effectively treat common childhood conditions, including ADD, ADHD, and anxiety. 

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 and hyperactivity. 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, midwives, and caregivers searching for innovative ways to help the next generation.
