…and many other issues.
Young children don’t always want to lie down on the treatment table. That’s completely alright. I have played with toddlers, following them around the room, or treated them sitting on their parents’ lap. When I brought my six-year old to her craniosacral therapist I used to bring a book to read to her. Older children might talk to me about school or their friends and are usually quite happy to chill on the treatment table.
If children are worried about sessions I might show them what it looks like on their parents and even let them try it out for themselves. I will not start treatment without asking (and receiving) your childrens’ permission. With small children this may not involve language but rather movement. The younger children are the more work is interspersed with play, as they tend to react more quickly to treatment and will need breaks.
After a session:
Your child may have a burst of energy and then become very tired. This is completely normal. They may be a lot more relaxed than usually. Sessions build upon each other; therefore quite a few sessions may be needed to resolve an issue.
