Craniosacral Therapy Intra-oral work helps babies, toddlers and the elderly (who suffered from strokes) to stop drooling

I saw a few postings on Facebook amongst mothers whose babies drool.  Some say it is normal for baby to drool.  Some say their babies drool until the age of 2+ and that’s normal.  Some say it is due to teething.
So I asked my niece if she has photos of her daughter drooling.  And she replied: ”Hmm, I don’t think so eh.  Cause Hana from baby we did the exercise on her mouth and she very fast learnt how to swallow her saliva.” 
In infants and toddlers, researchers have developed four theories as to why excessive drooling might be the sign of something more than teething, it could be the sign of a larger health problem that can affect your child’s speech development, chewing and swallowing.
1.  Infants having issues breastfeeding
2.  Some children are not aware that they are drooling.
3.  Some children do not swallow frequently, or at least enough to be rid of the excess saliva.
4.  Some children do not swallow completely, leaving some saliva in the mouth each time.
5.  Some children do not seal their lips when trying to swallow their saliva.
Drooling is defined as saliva flowing outside of your mouth unintentionally. It’s often a result of weak or underdeveloped muscles in and around your mouth, or having too much saliva.
Saliva is produced by the salivary glands of body – the parotid, submandibular and sublingual glands.
These glands are under the control of the autonomic nervous system, comprised of sympathetic and parasympathetic nerve fibres.  Within the glands, the acinar cells are responsible for the volume of saliva secreted, and the duct cells are responsible for the composition of saliva.
Sympathetic Innervation
The sympathetic control of salivary production is via the superior cervical ganglion. Sympathetic stimulation results in the release of noradrenaline, which acts upon alpha- and beta-adrenergic receptors.
The parasympathetic outflow is coordinated via centres in the medulla, and innervation occurs via the facial and glossopharyngeal nerves. Afferent information from the mouth, tongue, nose and conditioned reflexes are integrated within the brain – and in the presence of food, parasympathetic stimulation occurs.
Certain medical conditions can put you at risk for drooling, particularly if they cause a loss of control of facial muscles. Conditions such as hypotonia and cerebral palsy can cause muscle weakness that affects the ability to close the mouth and swallow saliva.
According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, there are 50 pairs of muscles and nerves used to help you swallow. In other words, there are lots of things that can go wrong and lead to problems swallowing.
Types of dysphagia  (Dysphagia is the medical term for swallowing difficulties.)

Swallowing occurs in four phases: oral preparatory, oral, pharyngeal, and esophageal. Swallowing difficulty can be broken down into two categories: oropharyngeal and esophageal.
Oropharyngeal dysphagia is caused by disorders of the nerves and muscles in the throat. These disorders weaken the muscles, making it difficult for a person to swallow without choking or gagging.
Esophageal dysphagia is the feeling that something is stuck in your throat. This condition is caused by:
  • spasms in the lower esophagus, such as diffuse spasms or the inability of the esophageal sphincter to relax
  • tightness in the lower esophagus due to an intermittent narrowing of the esophageal ring
  • narrowing of the esophagus from growths or scarring
  • foreign bodies lodged in the esophagus or throat
  • a swelling or narrowing of the esophagus from inflammation or GERD
  • scar tissue in the esophagus due to chronic inflammation or post-radiation treatment
CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY can potentially relieve this condition with no manipulation, no force, no pressure, no needles and no drugs.  With light gentle hands, this gentle therapy can help your body to RESET the function of the nervous system, RESTORE a state of balance in the other systems in your body and allow you to REGAIN health and wellness.
Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the function of your Craniosacral system — the physiological body system comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect your brain and spinal cord.
