BODYWORK FOR BABIES
This book is revolutionary for infant and pediatric health and wellness.
Employing a fusion of craniosacral therapy, lymphatic techniques, modified visceral-myofascial-interstitial mobilization, Susan Vaughan Kratz shares treatment routines honed through years of therapy encounters with babies.

Bodywork for Babies can be a wellness “spa-like treatment” as well as remedial intervention when functional problems don’t resolve on their own.

Determining if irregular behaviors are “sensory” or “behavioral” is a daily challenge facing pediatric therapists.
It is well-accepted that sensory and behavioral difficulties reflect autonomic nervous system physiology. Tension and tone of organs, blood vessels, and lymphat
