When my daughter Sufi was born 5 years ago, the doctors realised she wasn't retaining food or gaining weight. The lactation consultant was quick to recommend a surgery for tongue tie. I was at my wits end as my then 1 week old child cried all night from hunger. Rukhs and Sonali were my support, sisters (and often mothers) in those days. I was advised to take Sufi to Zia for Craniosacral Therapy and for Homeopathy to Dr Padam who is also beyond brilliant.
An hour after the first session with Zia Nath, Sufi retained her feed and slept well for the first time. Since then she's been a part of our lives. I don't have a fixed pediatrician for my child, but Zia (and Dr Padam in adjunct to energy work, Bach and recently White horse products) have helped us tremendously.
Zia is an excellent, intuitive and sensitive healer whose mastery on Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy has benefited many of my patients. She's helped a severely affected stroke patient who was wheelchair bound and became mobile. I've seen her treat neurological issues, severe asthma, chronic sinusitis, pregnancy complications, birthing trauma, hormone imbalance, musculoskeletal issues, circulatory issues.
I'm honored to even know her, I'm glad she has agreed to share her knowledge and experience with me on my Instalive chat tonight @docraash.I hope it allows her work and brilliance to benefit more people.

I went to her related to my breastfeeding issues - My baby was on top feed as many doctors told me that my milk isn't sufficient for my newborn. With Zia's session and nutrition guide for me - My baby was completely on my feeding and Zia also solved all the myths related to breastfeeding. Zia is truly a magician for us.

I have been going to Zia Nath from the time my son was 8 months old.,today he is 4 years of age. MY sons head was not round when he was born as he was stuck in the birth passage for more than 2hrs Zia, with therapy corrected it and we could immediately see the difference, we as parents were happy as he din had to go through the painful process of wearing a helmet to correct the shape of his head. Then at 4 years my son had a weak eye and had high number in his right eye, with craniosacrial therapy done by Zia his number reduced remarkably with just two sessions, even the staff who checked his eyes were amazed looking at the difference .. Zia has truly been a magician .. A honest therapist who listens to our issues and gives honest opinion.. Never rushes us to take a decision... Thank you Zia....

Zia is not only wonderful at her work but is compassionate and intuitive when dealing with her clients . I like her whole body and mind approach that she has used with my autistic son and how she really listens to our parental concerns. My son's facial pain and gut issues have really settled down which allows him to be more 'with' us, allowing us to see his dynamic and sweet personality.As we continue on our journey healing him we hope to continue to use biodynamic cranosacral therapy as one of our tools in our arsenal of healing.

I heard about craniosacral therapy from my sister in law who was recommended by her pediatrician in London to the sametherapy for her daughter suffering from reflux. My sister in law observed that my daughter was suffering from reflux as well. That`s when I realized that all the groaning and grunting, the tightening of the body and arching of the back that my daughter did, along with throwing up as soon as she finished a feed were all symptomsof reflux. Since craniosacral therapy is non invasive I thought of giving it a try. I thought if it doesn`t help, its not going to harm either. So I took my 3 month old to Zia, who was just wonderful. In just 2 sessions I saw the difference in my daughter. She started sleeping better, her groaning and grunting had stopped. She did not throw up anymore. My daughter was a different baby. I then asked Zia if she could help with my 3 year old son. He has an enlarged adenoid and wheezing issues with difficulty in breathing and he would breathe with his mouth open. Just a couple of sessions and I saw the difference with my son as well. He gained weight, is more active and overall a much healthier child. Even his pediatrician was shocked with the change in him. I was never a believer in alternate medicine, but after seeing the difference in my own children and myself (I have migraine issues which are now much better thanks to craniosacral therapy), I recommend Zia to every one of my friends. Zia has been absolutely amazing. Patient and so understanding.
As this is a non invasive treatment, people like me, who are petrified of injections and don't like to medicate myself and my children, this alternate therapy has worked wonders.

After my pregnancy I discovered that I had an underactive thyroid and PCOS. I was also exhausted and drained. The birth of my daughter was stressful and after 2 days in labor she was born via emergency C-section. My daughter was diagnosed with GERD (gastrointestinal reflux disease) and Colic at 2 weeks old and was on prescription medication for the first 7 months of her life. This also meant that her muscle tone was loose as a result of not being able to lay her flat and that she did not sleep well in the day or night. We both came to Bombay completely exhausted and were referred to Zia by my naturopath. My daughter (at 14 months) was a changed person from the very first session. She was calmer and happier and slept in the car seat on the way back from her appointment with Zia (she never sleeps in the car). She also fell asleep easily at night and had a good nights sleep. After a few sessions she was becoming more physically active and after a few more sessions she finally began to walk. Zia also treated her wheezing and worked on helping her reach her milestones. I wish I had known about Craniosacral therapy when my daughter was born. I could have avoided 7 months of absolute agony!!
As for me, when I first met Zia, I was a completely wired person. Any sound would wake me up from sleep and I had a hard time relaxing. Zia's first few sessions helped my system to calm down and reboot and I started sleeping every afternoon to gain back the energy that I had lost all these months. Even though I intended to be treated for thyroid and PCOS, it seems that I saw Zia for a whole number of additional issues like stress, migraines, back ache, indigestion and weight loss. I am pleased to say that I am 100% happy with the results and wish I were still in Bombay so that I could continue the therapy.
Zia is a wonderful and approachable person and an extremely intuitive and talented therapist. I have referred several people to her for treatment for various issues and all of them are enjoying better health and relief from their symptoms.

Within six sessions of Craniosacral Balancing for my son Tanay (8 yrs), his jaw line visibly shifted making his face and cheeks more rounded, thereby improving his pronunciation and speech.

My daughter Saanch (2 yrs) was suffering from chronic fever since she was born. She had a caesarian delivery. Besides fever she was also showing slower developmental progress and would eat very little. After a couple of months of treatment her fever was not so frequent or so high. She started to eat more and overall her health and development improved. Also as a mother I experienced more relaxation, as my daughter's nervous system was not so stressed anymore.

During my entire pregnancy I was taking craniosacral sessions regularly and it really helped me in my energy levels and keeping my anxiety down, relaxing me and helping me to prepare positively for my natural birth.

Craniosacral sessions relieved me of my lower back and neck pain with which I was suffering for a while. I also felt very relaxed after the sessions and this feeling would last for a long while after. I saw Immediate result for Aditya my son (3 yrs) where after just one session he started passing motions, which he was finding difficult to do on his own for the past 15 months.
