I'm Soma
Is cranial sacral therapy safe for children?   
  by Soma Sexton on Saturday, September 26, 2015

I am certified to work with children 8 years old and older. Cranial-sacral therapy offers safe and supportive holistic treatments for infants and children alike. Since cranial-sacral treatments are gentle in nature, your child should not experience pain. 

However, as is their nature, sometimes children cry or move about the table or room. I will work with your child to ensure his/her comfort during treatments. It is common for children to relax and even sleep deeply during and after treatment.

Some of the most common reasons why parents bring in their children for pediatric care include:

Acute injuries (sprains, pulled muscles, sports injuries, etc.)
ADD/ADHD
Autism
Cerebral palsy
Colic
Constipation
Crawling concerns
Crying concerns
Constipation
Emotional stress
Headaches
Infant development
Reflux
Stress and tension-related disorders

Cranial Sacral Therapy Patient Reviews

GREATER PEACE & BALANCE

After just several sessions, I noticed relief from my TMJ. I also experienced a new level of relaxation from the treatments and the refreshingly free, yet rare feeling that comes with letting go of anxiety and stress. Even if I had tried to hold on to stress and anxiety during a session, Soma's healing hands and intuitive healing have now led my body to do what it's really needed. The result? Greater peace and greater balance. She's amazing!  Katie Roberts, Hood River, OR

SUBTLE TOUCH

Soma's Cranial Sacral Therapy seems almost magical. Not only is she able to set me in a state of uttermost relaxation during her sessions, her methods are extremely effective.
How can a subtle touch heal anything? In my case, she was able to ``cure`` my reoccurring headache. I suffered years of feeling a constant pressure on the outside of my head, where conventional doctors tried recommending everything including MRI and serious painkillers.

She is knowledgeable, very professional and extremely attentive. She truly listens. I would highly recommend Soma to anybody searching for an unconventional therapist, deep long relaxing massage or an alternative to a handful of Ibuprofen....

Soma, I Love what you do!!!

GENTLE TOUCH

I have had several Cranial Sacral Treatments with Soma in the past year. She has a very quiet, gentle touch which was especially calming. One of my sessions I was experiencing a lot of tension in my jaw from a previous Chiropractic adjustment. Soma was still in school and just so happened to be studying the jaw. About 24 hours after my session with her the tension subsided.

She is very passionate about her newly discovered calling and is excited to create a business for herself that encourages peace, gratitude and balance in her life...in the world...and in the body. Why not start with ``the head first``.

COMMITMENT TO HEALTH

To date I have had the pleasure of receiving the healing hands of Soma Peterson on three occasions for Cranial-Sacral therapy. Unfortunately, I can not say that I received these treatments for any specific reason or ailment. What I can say is this therapy is like nothing I have ever experienced. I know of nothing else that can bring about such relaxation, clarity of the mind and sense of well being. It seemed as though every nerve in my body and thought in my mind had been reset to a perfect state of calm. Soma has an energy, presence and touch that is nothing short of magical. ~ Kim
