How does CranioSacral therapy work?
The craniosacral system consists of the membranes and the cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds and protects the brain and spinal cord. It extends from the bones of the skull, face and mouth which make up the cranium, down to the sacrum or tailbone area. CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle method of detection and correction that encourages your own natural healing mechanisms to dissipate negative effects of stress on your central nervous system.
What can I expect during a session?
During a CranioSacral Therapy session, you will remain fully clothed. Using a light touch, the practitioner monitors the rhythm of the CranioSacral system to detect potential restrictions and imbalances. The therapist then uses delicate manual techniques to release those problem areas and relieve undue pressure on the brain and spinal cord. Often, a deep sense of relaxation is reached during an hour session.
What are the benefits of CranioSacral therapy?
CranioSacral Therapy strengthens your body’s ability to take better care of you. It helps alleviate a range of illness, pain and dysfunction which includes migraines and headaches, chronic neck and back pain, stress and tension related problems, chronic fatigue, scoliosis, central nervous system disorders and many other conditions.
