Some areas that children have benefited from treatments are:
Infants and Children
Infants and Children can benefit greatly from these types of gentle, low force care, and they are especially mobile and responsive while they are still growing. Some restriction patterns can be mistakenly taken as childhood traits or quirks. Infants and small children have a hard time communicating their discomfort and/or they grow into thinking those restrictions were "normal." Certain traits such as crawling differently, laying in odd positions, banging heads into things, nursing/latch issues, digestive discomfort, a continually rocking are seen as individualism or quirks where instead it is based on restrictions affecting their comfort and development. Certain children that are not meeting their development goals can benefit greatly from this type of gentle care. Read more about Infant and Child care...
People of all ages can benefit by the techniques offered by Dynamic Healing Arts, and treatments have shown to help:
Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST)
CST works by finding restrictions in the body and then using gentle techniques to help the body increase balanced motion. The cranial bones and sacrum work together to pump cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) through movements that can be lost in states of restriction resulting in a host of seemingly unrelated symptoms. Cranial Sacral Therapy is a light-touch approach that releases restrictions throughout all levels of the connective tissues (superficial to deep) in the body in order to relieve pain and dysfunction while improving whole-body health and performance.

Pregnancy and Postpartum
Pregnancy and Postpartum care is very important and at times very undervalued. The amazing process of pregnancy can become a daunting experience of too much information and too much varied advice coupled with learning and questioning the body's new "normal." Many times this new "normal" is an individualistic conception of experiencing back pain, swollen feet, hip pain, etc. Although these are common in pregnancy, they are often caused by the restrictive patterns within the mother's body before, and now in reaction to, the changes that take place in pregnancy. The uterus in particular is attached to the spine by ligaments that if restricted not only lead to pain for the mother, but also can limit the range of motion the growing baby needs to be in the optimal position for birth. Breech, transverse, and posterior presentations can be greatly helped through myofascial release (MFR) techniques and pregnancy specific chiropractic care that is gentle on both mother and baby.

Myofascial Release (MFR)
Myofascial Release (MFR) treatment works with the connective tissue of the body, called Fascia. Fascia is a densely woven covering that is one continuos structure which surrounds every part of our body creating "pockets" to hold our muscles, bones, organs, spinal cord, and brain. Trauma, inflammatory responses, postural patterns, and/or surgical procedures create myofascial restrictions that limit movement and create further patterns of restriction when trying to repair the lost function. MFR involves placing hands on fascial points and following the tissue to areas of restriction. This may involve very subtly twisting, turning and pulling areas to “follow” the fascial movements. By gently staying with the movement of the fascia, restrictions will resolve, becoming more balanced and mobile. Read more about MFR...
