Neonates, infants and children may also benefit from the effects of craniosacral therapy and massage. In many cultures, babies are massaged everyday for the first year of their lives. Massage not only improves circulation but also stimulates growth and development of the central nervous system. Craniosacral therapy has been especially beneficial with infants and children who have special learning abilities and autism. Dr. Upledger treated neonates preventively with craniosacral therapy and found that those children had fewer learning disabilities and health problems compared to children of the same age who had not received any treatment.
