|I'm so glad to hear that the book was helpful to you and that you have found a practitioner. Our Pulmonologist reiterated at our last appointment how much improvement he has seen in many infants/children with reflux using cranio-sacral...|
As far as questions for the practitioner go -- I felt that the most important thing initially was the rapport between the practitioner and my son. We were fortunate to find someone who clicked well with him, and we saw results within a few visits in the form of a new ability to relax his body and rest, which had been a problem from the start. It took a little getting used to just how light the touch is -- it isn't always obvious that anything at all is happening, so it takes a bit of faith. For us it was a 'can't-hurt-might-help' undertaking, and we saw quickly enough that it was helping with some of his issues.
Best of luck to you -- I'd love to hear how it goes!
