In 2009, Dr. Barry R. Gillespie published a report on a 4-year-old boy who had been demonstrating hyperactive, disruptive behavior and was brought in for craniosacral therapy. Significant improvements were noted both during and after the treatment period, during which he became more attentive and less aggressive. Improvements in speech and performance in school were also noted.
Craniosacral therapy can also be used in conjunction with other forms of therapy. A 2009 report described the treatment of a 6-year-old boy who supplemented his ADHD medication with chiropractic adjustments, craniosacral therapy, and nutritional supplements. The boy showed notable improvements in focus and cooperativeness as noted by teachers and his bus driver, and eventually went off his meds entirely.
