We care for our automobiles with regular tune-ups to function smoothly. Similarly, our bodies function & respond much better when given that same consideration, and CranioSacral therapy can be a vital part of that care.


About CranioSacral Therapy

When elements of trauma overwhelm our bodies, the tissues often "freeze" to contain and encapsulate the damage. This encapsulated energy can be effectively released through CranioSacral therapy.

What Is CranioSacral Therapy
CranioSacral Therapy works through the CranioSacral system to access the body's self-healing capacities. The CranioSacral system consists of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds and supports the brain and spinal cord.

Using very light touch, the skilled practitioner monitors body rhythms at key points to locate areas of obstruction, stress or dysfunction. Then, techniques of alignment and adjustment engage the body's own corrective mechanisms to release restriction. Over time, a chain reaction of release follows – this gentle and subtle touch facilitates fundamental changes safely from the inside out!

Additionally, for someone working on body and self through a movement discipline and psychological or spiritual work, CranioSacral Therapy is an excellent adjunct.

Why Do It
Most everyone will benefit with overall better health and a "rebooted," revitalized nervous system. CranioSacral Therapy can also be the least invasive and side-effect-free treatment of choice for:

    •  Stress/Tension Related Problems
    •  Chronic Neck/Back Pain
    •  Headaches/Migraines
    •  TMJ Dysfunction
    •  Ear and Eye Problems
    •  Sports/Physical Injuries
    •  Chronic Fatigue/Sleep Disorder
    •  Fibromyalgia/Scoliosis
    •  Pre/Post Natal Issuess
    •  Infantile Disorders/Colic/Autism
    •  Learning Disabilities
    •  Nervous System/Immune Disorders
    •  Pre/Post Surgery Prep & Recovery
    •  Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
    •  Post-Accident Rebalancing
    •  Many other conditions!

How It Is Done
Unlike massage, a client is fully clothed during CranioSacral Therapy—loose unrestricting garments are preferred. Depending on the severity and type of condition, a course of 3 to 5 sessions should produce results and indicate whether continued treatment is recommended. The sessions often combine CranioSacral Therapy with Visceral Manipulation - a mechanical release of specific organ restriction, SomatoEmotional Release® – a dialoguing technique targeting energy/emotions locked in tissues, and Zero Balancing skeletal alignment techniques, along with Massage and Shiatsu.

Sessions run about an hour
