I felt God at work today.
An eleven-day-old newborn presented for his first (and probably last) visit. Mom had brought her last baby in for therapy a few years ago. I usually do not see babies this young, before they start developing our typical issues. But mom knew that an important therapeutic window of opportunity was still present.
I could hear the hiccups during the intake. It was cute. Mom said his big condition was sleeping on his back, a very uncomfortable position for him. Otherwise, no other issues were presenting this early in his life.
I found restricted fascia straining from his pelvis into his back, which released quickly. His tight diaphragm also let go nicely. He was not happy with those nasty strain patterns, but exhibited little crying. He really manned up.
I felt like angels scattered pixie dust on him, and his body tension was gone. After a tough fascial workout from Dr. Loose, he was very relaxed at the end of the session.
I realized during the therapy how easily and quickly the fascial web released. For the new readers this therapy is not rocket science. Kim Sherlock and Holly Steflik teach a great infant seminar to get you in this game.
The bottom line here is that a few minutes of therapy at the beginning of life could potentially prevent 80 years of back pain and other unknown issues. This no-brainer will be a game changer for him.
If I had done the work directly at his birth, it would probably have happened even faster with little or no crying. My sincere wish is we show compassion to the newborns of the world by doing the right thing.
We hold the Light for the unborn billions. We see a world where every newborn is free from a lifetime of suffering due to birth trauma. I feel compassion for all suffering infants. Our aim is for every neonate to experience the wonder of therapy. Our goal is to create a global shift of consciousness around newborn health.
