Craniosacral Therapy is an effective and proven alternative therapy that relieves a host of negative symptoms and provides improvement when other methods have failed. It is endorsed by DOs, MDs, DCs, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Massage Therapists around the world.
CranioSacral is a gentle light touch therapy
CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the CranioSacral system. While this light touch therapy is based on western medicine, it blends eastern philosophies by tapping into the body’s Inner Physician.
Harmony benefits the entire body
The cranial system is comprised of the cranium, spinal column, the sacrum and the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Because the direction of energy is on the nervous system, it benefits the entire body. The cranial system is connected to all soft tissue though a continuous membrane called fascia. CranioSacral Therapy evaluates dysfunctions and distortions in the CranioSacral system and works to harmonize the primary elements of the system. This is why you can work on one part of the body and affect another part. It is all interconnected.
CranioSacral Therapy is based upon the principals of Osteopathic Medicine and was developed by Dr. John Upledger who is the founder of the Upledger Institute.
CranioSacral Therapy undoes everyday stress
Every day your body endures stresses and strains that it must work to compensate for. Unfortunately, these changes often cause body tissues to tighten and distort the cranio sacral system. These distortions can then cause tension to form around the brain and spinal cord resulting in restrictions. This can create a barrier to the healthy performance of the central nervous system, and potentially every other system it interacts with.
Fortunately, such restrictions can be detected and corrected using simple methods of touch. Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the Cranio Sacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system. Through the release of specific diaphragms located on the body, fascial membranes are affected thereby making adjustments throughout the body.
Alleviates many symptoms and chronic conditions
By normalizing the environment around the brain and spinal cord and enhancing the body’s ability to self-correct, Cranio Sacral Therapy is able to alleviate a wide variety of dysfunctions, from chronic pain and sports injuries to stroke and neurological impairment.
Complimenting the Body’s natural healing process
By complementing the body’s natural healing processes, Cranial Sacral Therapy is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease. It is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction, including:
