Occupational Therapy

_MG_2236 copy

Occupational Therapy

Pediatric occupational therapy is a skilled therapeutic treatment, which focuses on helping infants, children, and young adults maximize their abilities to achieve the greatest possible degree of functional independence in all areas, or “occupations”, of their lives.

Occupational Therapy uses purposeful and goal-directed activities in conjunction with play to improve function, enhance mastery of skills, foster positive self-esteem/confidence and promote engagement, interactions, and involvement.  

Our occupational therapists are highly trained to assess and provide treatment to children from birth to young adults.   We understand that all children are unique and not everyone fits into a specific therapy model, so by individualizing treatments we are able to provide the most effective intervention for each patient.

Craniosacral Therapy

Description

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a non-invasive, hands-on body treatment that is helpful for infants and children as well as adults. It is an assessment tool plus corrective and preventive treatment technique. Through the use of gentle but precise touch the therapist can monitor the rhythm of the CranioSacral system to detect potential restrictions and imbalances through the body which may in turn be impeding proper function and causing a variety of disturbances (sensory, motor, or neurological) within the body.
