CranioSacral Therapy is a light touch manual therapy that addresses restrictions in the craniosacral system ~ the membranes and fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. This vital system extends from the bones of the skull, face and mouth, which make up the cranium, down to the sacrum, or tailbone area.
Since the craniosacral system directly impacts the central nervous system, it's easy to see how an imbalance there may cause a variety of sensory, motor or neurological disabilities. CranioSacral Therapy helps correct these restrictions so the body can release the effects of stress ~ naturally.
This form of bodywork is received while fully clothed or can be incorporated into a regular massage session. A light touch is used, generally no more than the wieght of a nickel. The practitioner detects the rhythm of the craniosacral system to determine potential restrictions and imbalances. By using gentle manual techniques the therapist releases problem areas and relieves undue pressure on the brain & spinal cord. This frees restrictions throughout the body and allows for the greatest state of homeostasis.
