What is Craniosacral Therapy ?

 


CranioSacral Therapy is a light-touch manual therapy that address restrictions in the craniosacral system-the membranes and cerebrospinal 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 this vital system influences the development and performance of the brain and spinal cord, an imbalance or restriction in it could potentially cause any number of sensory, motor, or neurological disabilities. These problems could include chronic pain, eye difficulties, scoliosis, motor-coordination impairments, learning disabilities and other health challenges.

CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle method of detection and correction that encourages your own natural healing mechanisms to dissipate these negative effects of stress on your central nervous system.
