How I can help

Speech and feeding difficulties often develop when the body is not in the proper postural alignment or moving with control and balance. Low or high muscle tone, imbalances in body weight distribution and incoordination of the body through the head, neck, trunk and pelvis can influence the fine muscle movements of the jaw, face, lips and tongue needed for feeding and speech.

Helping the body to be more organized and coordinated in movement (Perception-Action Approach), or helping to release limitations or restrictions in bones and joints (Zero Balancing), or releasing limitations in tissues and fluids (Cranial Sacral Therapy), can help to improve movement and motion throughout the body. Improving the ability to use the body with better coordination and balance can help to improve functional muscle movements necessary for proper breath support, feeding or speech.
