WHAT IS IT? WHAT DOES IT DO? HOW CAN IT HELP ME?
Craniosacral therapy is a light touch, whole body treatment technique developed to work with the body’s craniosacral system to support and nourish the central nervous system–improving overall health and well-being. It uses a gentle touch to manipulate the joints in the cranium (skull), the spine and parts of the pelvis.
A complementary method of hands-on bodywork; works with the natural and unique rhythms of the different body systems to pinpoint and address problem sources.
Helps alleviate the aches, pains and strains of life; improves coping mechanisms to allow for better management of stress.
Improves the body’s ability to self-care; can produce profound, positive changes. Some of the following conditions can be affected by craniosacral therapy treatment:
- Alzheimer’s and dementia
- back pain or neck pain
- brain injury and concussion
- chronic fatigue
- immune disorders
- learning disabilities and ADD/ADHD
- post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- spinal cord injury
- sleep disruptions/disorders
Cranialsacral therapy can be used in conjunction with other therapies or by itself. It is typically performed by osteopaths, chiropractors and massage therapists. Maybe it can help you find relief from symptoms that other treatments have not been able to alleviate.
