The monthly By-Donation Pregnancy and Infant Clinic offers Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy and Infant Developmental Movement Education support for women at all stages of pregnancy and families with infants newborn through crawling. The clinic is intended to open the practices more broadly to the community, while contributing to the Nan Tolbert Nurturing Center as a valuable community resource.
Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy (BCST) is a gentle hands-on bodywork that orients the interconnected rhythms and structures of the whole being towards health. BCST uses light touch to effect physiological and structual change. Arising from an osteopathic tradition, the approach engages in relationship with connective tissue, musculoskeletal, nervous system and the dynamic fluid motion in the body to facilitate ease in patterns of tension resulting from injury, stress or emotional strain. Infant Developmental Movement Education (IDME) is a non-invasive, child-centered, interactive approach that elicits natural capacities in order to explore an infant’s optimal potential and overcome limitations in movement.
All Donations benefit the Nan Tolbert Nurturing Center (NTNC), which is dedicated to supporting secure beginnings for children 0-5, regardless of a family's ability to pay. NTNC works through inspiring partnerships and community resources that address pre and post-natal well being, infant/toddler development, and parent education and support.
Suggested donation: $10-35 payable to NTNC
Please note from time-to-time, experienced community practitioners from related fields may observe clinic in order to deepen their work with children and families.
