CranioSacral Therapy is a healing therapy that uses gentle touch to facilitate whole body release by supporting and enhancing inherent body rhythms, especially the flow of cerebrospinal fluid. The techniques are grounded in the formal osteopathic principle that the human body is an integrated unit superbly designed to self-heal.
While addressing a wide range of chronic and acute illnesses from neck/back problems, migraines, insomnia, nerve disorders and emotional issues, it’s also excellent for stress reduction and to “re-boot,” re-balance and re-vitalize one’s overall system.
Few body structures have more influence over health and well-being than your central nervous system, and few body systems have more impact on your central nervous system than the craniosacral system – the membranes and fluid that supports and surrounds your brain and spinal cord.
Using extremely light touch – often less pressure than the weight of an ordinary nickel – the CranioSacral Therapist monitors body rhythms at key points to locate areas of obstruction, stress or dysfunction. Then techniques of alignment and adjustment engage the body’s own corrective mechanisms to initiate a release process. A chain reaction of release follows over time – this gentle and subtle touch facilitates fundamental healing and change safely from the inside out!
