Description of Services

Infant and Child Feeding:

Michigan craniosacral provides elite services for variety of issues:

Oral Motor:

Michigan Craniosacral therapy begin by looking for weakness, tone irregularities and asymmetry that affect feeding. We will look at how your child is moving food in their mouth and swallowing. We will address stages of feeding development and progress your child to the appropriate skill level. We strive to make munching, chewing, biting food, a snap!


We will address what is impacting your child’s ability to use his/her jaw, lips and tongue. We will consider issues that interfere with your baby’s seal and milk intake. We will also look at your child’s ability to coordinate, sucking, breathing and swallowing. Our commitment is to make your special time breastfeeding easy and effortless, so you and your child can sigh with contentment and love.

Picky Eating:

There is always a reason a child will not eat. The myth out there is: if a child is hungry enough, they will eat, that unfortunate, is not true. At Michigan Craniosacral we will look at where your child’s sensitivities are located. In the mouth, you can have places of high sensitivity, low sensitivity or a combination. We will look at your child’s individual sensory system and create a map for normalizing sensitivities and a plan for successful integration of foods including vegetables and proteins.

Somato emotional release

This approach is based on the concept that we hold in our tissues memory and emotions that were encapsulated at the time of great trauma. This trauma could be physical blows, virus vaccinations, negative emotions and words at time of accident. These events create a type of muscle restriction that interferes with function. The purpose of this release is to create increase function and create a freedom of ease in high charge situations which leave the past behind

Michigan Craniosacral therapy provides therapy for children who have difficulty with sensory integration. We provide individual treatment to address issues of children in this area. Our approach address issues in sensory systems. This includes but not limited to:

Tactile- This system is the first system to develop in the body. It deals with light touch, pressure, vibration, temperature and pain. It keeps the brain organized and develops ability to protect our bodies and discriminate the touches of our world. If a child had issues in this area, some behaviors that could result are:

Avoids expression of affection such as hugs
