Craniosacral and Occupational Therapist
What can I expect during a session?
Children lie fully clothed on a table. Some children may become unusually still or fall asleep as their nervous system relaxes. Others may stay awake and have an increase in alertness. Sessions range from thirty minutes to one hour.
What conditions does Alyssa specialize in?
Alyssa offers a unique therapy for improving the health and function of children. By using a gentle form of therapeutic touch that is highly effective and non-invasive, your child's body can be supported to self-correct and heal naturally.
What type of therapy does Alyssa provide?
Alyssa uses manual therapy (hands-on treatment) to detect and resolve patterns of tension and physical restriction in the body. These imbalances can form at various stages of a child's early development, especially during the birthing process.
" My baby girl was irritable and colicky. I was looking for a natural way to make her more comfortable when I heard about Craniolsacral therapy. After three sessions with Alyssa her digestion is so much better, her fussing stopped and she sleeps through the night. Thank you!" -- E.G.
" My pediatrician suggested Craniolsacral therapy to relieve my child's ear infections rather than take another course of antibiotics. After monthly treatments, my son has been without ear infections for five months. We are all happier and healthier" --J.S.
How does this work with other forms of therapy?
Alyssa works closely with the child's team of doctors and therapists to create a well-balanced therapeutic program. Often a healthcare professional will recommend manual therapy because it impacts all of the systems in the body. Positive changes can often be observed in just a few sessions.
