CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle hands-on method of releasing restrictions around the brain and spinal cord so your body can self-correct and free itself of pain and other health conditions.

The craniosacral system consists of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. It extends from the bones of the skull, face and mouth, down to the sacrum, or tailbone area.

Tension anywhere in your body can restrict the flow of the craniosacral rhythm. An imbalance or restriction in the rhythm could potentially be the cause for chronic pain, motor-coordination impairments, and learning disabilities. The therapist monitors the rhythm of the craniosacral system to detect potential restrictions and imbalances.

For treatment, the therapist places the hands beneath a section of your spine, skull or tailbone and listens to the craniosacral rhythm and holds that position until a release is achieved.
During the treatment, you may have a sense of deepening into the area being treated. You may feel a pulse or increased warmth. In addition to the release of physical tension, you may have emotional feelings surface. Becoming aware of your emotions can be a very effective aid in relieving tension and pain. Once treated, the central nervous system is able to return to its greatest level of performance.
