Infant Torticollis presents as a slightly tilted head and difficulty turning the neck. As a Licensed Massage and certified CranioSacral Therapist through the Upledger Institute, I have personally worked on thousands of patients and many infants with Torticollis with excellent results. This usually happens due to in womb positioning or a challenged delivery. I have found that the sooner the baby comes after birth, like 5 weeks old, the better. This way the muscles of the neck and shoulder don't have a chance to shorten and contract, which then takes longer to resolve. CST is a very gentle, light touch technique that addresses the fascial holdings and muscles, and assists the bodies unwinding of the energy that is holding the soft tissue of the neck and shoulder hostage. I have great results within one to two treatment sessions.
