Cranial Sacral Therapy

Cranial Sacral Therapy, is a gentle technique involving the practitioner’s hands being placed on the body to help release restrictions in the connective tissue that surround the brain and the spinal cord. The restrictions of the nerve passages are eased, the movement of the cerebrospinal fluid through the spinal cord is optimized, and the skeletal system is realigned to its proper position.

The Central Nervous System is responsible for the functioning of the entire body therefore restrictions can cause pain and/or disease in any part of the body and any system. This light-touch therapy reduces the effects of stress and strengthens resistance to disease including but not limited to:

  • Stress
  • Neck and back pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • TMJ
  • Fibromyalgia

What to expect from a Cranial Sacral Therapy Session

The treatment session begins with an evaluation by your trained therapist to identify troubled areas.

The therapist uses gentle pressure techniques to assess the existence of possible disruptions and/or restrictions in your fascial system. Light touch and fascial release may help your muscles and organs naturally relieve stress, which improves function. Other patients often report feeling a sense of deep relaxation.
