Children and Physical Trauma

kid2The Body Is Remarkable

If your child cuts or bruises himself, his body immediately goes into action to heal the affected area. (Boys seem to have more trauma than girls, so we’ll use the masculine pronoun.)

If his body failed to renew or heal itself, he would die, thus his life is totally dependent on the ability of his body to heal.

What gets in the way of natural healing?

Trauma Can Impair Healing

Your child may have gone through a difficult birth. Or he may have fallen off a swing, bumped his head on the edge of a table, or injured himself in the rough and tumble of play.

Physical trauma like this can cause restriction or tightness in the muscles and fascia, impairing the ability of your child’s body to function and heal.

The effects of this trauma may result in chronic conditions such as:

  • headache
  • earache
  • asthma
  • hyperactivity
  • learning disorders
  • eye, sinus, and allergy conditions
  • throat ailments
  • neck and shoulder conditions
  • scoliosis (curvature of the spine)

As well as a multitude of other impediments that may be un-known or un-detected by conventional medical tests.

Your child’s body may be valiantly trying to correct itself.

Some areas may be so tight, however, that they cannot heal without being loosened through various gentle massage or muscle and energy balancing techniques.

Without therapeutic assistance your child’s body may struggle for a lifetime.

The Option of Care
for children Is Not New

Most parents are not aware of this option, but it goes back to the1840s when Dr. Sylvester Graham and other physicians espoused natural living principles.

  • After the first therapy session, for example, many children with hyperactivity experienced a significant change. Parents and family members witnessed calmer youngsters.
  • Children who suffered from chronic earaches soon became well and did not require further medication or ear tube surgery.
  • Children who had difficulty learning improved their grades dramatically. Failing students improved to A and B grades. One child came to me with a list of symptoms that included asthma.

As a final scientific confirmation:

When parents returned children to medical doctors for reevaluation, they knew that the treatment had been successful when the doctors told them that all the signs of the original conditions were gone.

Craniosacral Therapy is one example of therapy For children, it is often used after a traumatic delivery to treat chronic ear infections.

Others claim it can help with problems of constant crying, colic, and hyperactivity
