Jesse Tischler is the Berlin Wellness Group's Pediatric and Adult Craniosacral Therapist offering pediatric craniosacral therapy for newborns, infants, and toddlers and advanced soft-tissue therapy for older children and adults.
Pediatric craniosacral therapy is a practice designed to treat common conditions and special cases in newborns, infants, toddlers, and young children. Newborns and young children can be susceptible to symptoms and conditions in response to their early periods of adaptation and development. Some of these conditions can include torticollis, reflux, difficulty feeding and abnormal sleep, constipation, ear infections, and "colic-type" behavior. More clinically related conditions include motor and sensory disturbances of the eyes and extremities, a lack of social engagement/the appearance of being "withdrawn," birth process complications, and learning and physical disabilities in the younger to older child. Working with infants and young children is a way of assisting the child through these and other conditions in the early developmental stages of their life. At the Berlin Clinic, Jess treats children for childhood conditions and older children and adults for injury, acute and chronic pain, and orthopedic conditions.
