Common child - Gillespie Approach–Craniosacral Fascial Therapy

A Common Child

Everywhere some children have fallen through the cracks of the health-care system. A mom relates: “My son never feels good. He is not right.”

A ten-year-old boy presents with headaches, allergies, anger issues, and lack of focus and concentration with trouble in math. His befuddled parents are looking for answers.

Even though his life’s history was uneventful, he had severe trauma at birth. He presented breech at a birth center during a difficult labor and delivery. The midwife said that, in one more minute, his mom would have been transported to the hospital for a cesarean section.

He did not breathe on his own for seven minutes. At two weeks, he had colic and constipation where he screamed every night for five months. He later had earaches. A number of red flags were presenting along the way for him to be checked with our work.

A breech delivery is a strong indicator for therapy at birth. The fact that he did not take his first breath for seven minutes is a huge red flag.

Severe colic and constipation would have alerted a professional that therapy was needed. The later earaches were also a sign of craniosacral fascial restriction.

The same strains that he supposedly “grew out of” as an infant were now manifesting as headaches, allergies, anger issues, and lack of focus and concentration. All the traumas experienced in those forty fetal weeks count in life.

Clinically, he had a zero-second brain cycle and was truly Mr. Tight. I am assuming he was like this at birth, and no one noticed.

Virtually no one in the healthcare profession connects the dots of current conditions rooted back to soft tissue birth injuries. Those unseen traumas at birth can negatively affect us for a lifetime.

Gillespie Approach Training for infants and newborns is a must for all neonatal providers.
