Parents of Linda’s patients often notice that their children are more relaxed, can focus better in school, and have an easier time with transitions. Many are astounded to see their hyperactive or tense child relax or even fall asleep during the session. Children tend to feel calmer, can focus easier, and are better able to deal with the stressful demands of school. Restoring equilibrium in the body also helps make children less accident-prone or clumsy, because they are not “off-balance” anymore.
Children and Adolescents
Linda is known for her special connection with the children she works with. Gentle and non-invasive, craniosacral therapy is effective in ways children can intuitively recognize.
She believes in the importance of developing trust, and empowering children to become cooperative participants in their healing process by teaching them tools to calm themselves, relieve pain and feel safe. Linda also incorporates elements of sensory integration, guided imagery, and imaginative play, and storytelling to help calm and focus children during sessions.
An important part of her work is helping children with sensory processing disorders feel organized and calm in their bodies. She also works with many children to help ease transitions through developmental stages in life (kindergarten to 1st grade, 9 and 12 year change, adolescence, etc.). Her work helps support and nourish children through these critical stages.
Linda also works with teens for all sorts of emotional, behavioral and physical problems. Many teens, and even younger children, in today’s society are overloaded with school, extra curricular activities and overall busy lifestyles. This can create undue stress on their systems, lowering their immune function, increasing anxiety and affecting school performance. The therapies Linda offers can help compensate for some of these problems. She has many teens that she see’s several times a year for “tuneups” to helps ease the stress and demands school can bring to their systems, allowing them to tackle their workloads without being overwhelmed.
