Craniosacral therapy uses gentle touch to release tensions in the body, allowing the central nervous system – the control center of the body – to perform at its best. Because the central nervous system influences every other major body system and function, support of this system helps the body self-correct and can bring about profound healing.
Craniosacral therapy can relieve pain, improve body movement, and address a wide range of dysfunctions including migraines and headaches, chronic neck and back pain, stress- and tension-related symptoms, motor-coordination impairments, orthopedic problems, psychological and emotional issues, congenital health conditions, various infant and childhood disorders, learning disabilities, and ADD/ADHD. Craniosacral therapy also can be used preventively and to develop greater wellness and vitality.
Because craniosacral therapy is so gentle and non-invasive, it is well-suited for infants, children, and the elderly, as well as people with highly painful conditions.
During treatment, most people feel deeply relaxed. Starting with a light touch – comparable to the weight of a nickel – your therapist will evaluate the rhythm of the fluid that flows around the central nervous system to identify areas of weakness. Then, through a series of light-touch techniques, yourtherapist will release the problem areas, improving the function of the central nervous system so your body can heal naturally and perform more optimally.
