CranioSacral Therapy

Discover CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral therapy is a gentle hands-on technique that balances and frees the tissues that surround the central nervous system. The brain and spinal cord are surrounded by cerebrospinal fluid. The fluid has a rhythm that can become impacted by changes in the bones of the head (cranium) or at the base of the spine (sacrum).

A free flowing CranioSacral system is directly related to your overall well being. Restrictions can cause dysfunction or diseases in the body. The therapist balances the restrictions and restores natural motion. Clients will have a sense of clarity, deep relaxation, and well being after a session.

Everyone can benefit from a CranioSacral session. Clients between the ages of 3 weeks old to 96 years old have been treated. CranioSacral therapy is increasingly used as a preventative health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease. It is also effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction, including:

  • Migraines/Headaches
  • Autism
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Sinus pressure
  • Stress related problems
  • Post falling
  • Car accident injuries; whiplash
  • Neck and back pain
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Temporal Mandibular Joint Syndrome
  • Learning Disabilities
  • Emotional Difficulties
  • Fibromyalgia / Connective Tissue Disorders

What can I expect from a CranioSacral session?

Upon arrival, you will fill out a health history form. Your therapist will review your past and present medical history with you, with your specific needs noted. During the session, you will remain fully clothed. Your therapist will assess and balance your CranioSacral rhythm with light touch. A session will last about 45 minutes. Comfortable loose fitting clothes should be worn.

Are there any side effects?

During the treatment, you may experience a variety of different sensations that include extreme relaxation, (you may even fall asleep), temperature changes, increased energy and immediate pain relief. In some cases, images, emotions and memories may arise. However, in an atmosphere of deep relaxation and safety, they are easily processed and released. On occasion, clients may feel lightheaded upon sitting after a session. Drink plenty of water post session to flush out any toxins that were released from your session.
