Pregnancy and obstetrics
Q: Is it safe for me to have CranioSacral Therapy now that I’m pregnant?
A: Yes, it is safe, and even desirable, because CranioSacral Therapy mobilizes and enhances many of the normal adaptational processes of your body. It is necessary for these processes to be highly operative during pregnancy. CranioSacral Therapy can very definitely assist them.
Q: I heard that CranioSacral Therapy can induce labor. Will it induce labor prematurely?
A: CranioSacral Therapy assists normal physiological processes. When properly applied it will never go against what your body wants to do. Therefore, it will never induce premature labor unless there is something wrong with the pregnancy and your body naturally wants to abort the fetus.
Q: If my labor seems to be going nowhere, can CranioSacral Therapy help me?
A: Yes, CranioSacral Therapy often seems to be the vehicle that puts energy into a stalled labor. This may happen by many different mechanisms, but it doesn’t really matter which is theoretically correct. CranioSacral Therapy is often followed by a quick natural delivery.
