A 2009 case study showing how craniosacral fascial therapy helped a 27-month-old boy with “extreme hyperactive behavior.” After treatment “His mother said he became a different child. He was calmer and more attentive and ceased his head banging, screeching, and ear pulling. He also stopped biting other children and picking at his arm. His speech improved dramatically after the first three visits by enunciating his words more clearly and speaking in coherent sentences. She was able to now touch his head with activities such as hair washing and combing. At his new day care center his teachers did not believe that he ever had a behavioral problem. He followed directions and participated in group functions like the other children.”
