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:
- Chronic neck and back pain
- Stress, tension, emotional problems and depression
- Neurovascular or immune disorders
- Hormonal disorders
- And more
