Often birth, illness or stress can misalign the sphenoid bone (houses the eye sockets) resulting in strabismus (a turned eye) or sometimes Amblyopia - an eye that is straight, but not functional.
* Along with visual stimulation, Craniosacral Therapy is always paired for children with strabismus so as to gently realign the skull bones and relax the extra ocular muscles of the eye. For babies, home visits in Craniosacral Therapy is performed while your child sleeps. Along with home 'play' and visual stimulation to reengage the turning or Amblyopic eye craniosacral therapy helps rebalance the visual-nervous system and coordinate the eyes.
