CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy is a system of evaluation and treatment using gentle non-invasive mobilization techniques of the craniosacral system, which includes all the structures related to the central nervous system and spinal column including cranial bones, sacrum, spinal column and tissue, and cerebrospinal fluid. Subtle movement or rhythmic impulses in the body are an indicator of overall health. Physical stress, emotional stress and toxins can hinder or block the healthy rhythmic impulses causing the tissues to form a memory of the stress or unresolved issue which may interrupt the proper healthy sequence of tissue maintenance.

Treatments help normalize the restrictions and dysfunctions in the craniosacral system, which then relates to all the other systems in the body. The practitioner finds the still points in the craniosacral structures and facilitates the reestablishment of the healthy rhythmic movement which assists the body in self-healing.

The patient feels the practitioner gently touch the body in specific places for short periods of time. The treatments are gentle and soothing. A feeling of relaxation and/or increased clarity can occur after the session.
