craniosacral therapy


Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, non-invasive technique that uses touch to enhance the function of the cranial system – the membranes and fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord – including all the bones of the head, face and mouth that make up the skull (cranium) and extend to the lower end of the spine (sacrum). 

Imbalances in the craniosacral system can cause dysfunction in the brain, spinal cord and spinal nerves. Craniosacral therapy practitioners can help correct these imbalances or restrictions and help improve well-being.

Craniosacral therapy may be helpful in the treatment of a range of conditions, including:
  • Migraines
  • Chronic neck and back pain
  • Stress, tension, emotional problems and depression
  • Neurovascular or immune disorders
  • Hormonal disorders
  • And more

what to expect

When you see a craniosacral therapist, your whole body will be examined for restrictions. (You remain clothed.) The therapist will find the areas of imbalance and work to correct them. Many people report a deep sense of relaxation during the session. Others experience memories, emotions or physical sensations that can often provide insight to help make positive life changes.

At first, you may have sessions once or twice per week. Some people report complete relief after their first session, while others require additional sessions over the course of several weeks. Clients with chronic conditions may require long-term therapy, although the frequency of sessions usually decreases over time.
