Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle hands-on treatment that facilitates healing throughout the body. The craniosacral system is a recently recognized physiological system, discovered in the early 1970’s by Dr. John Upledger. The system is comprised of the bones of the cranium, cranial sutures, spinal column and sacrum. Cerebrospinal fluid protects and nourishes the brain and spinal cord and makes up the internal environment of the system. The fluid production and reabsorption within the system creates a wave like motion or rhythm.
Our bodies are design to defend against and to assist in its own healing process. Sometimes physical or emotional trauma can occur which cause an imbalance or restriction in the system. This interferes with the body’s innate inability to self-correct. The therapist can tune into and detect disturbances or asymmetry in the rhythm which help identify areas of dysfunction or restriction.
Once these areas are evident, the therapist seeks to help the body restore itself to a more optimal level of functioning. By following certain subtle cues, restrictions throughout the body can be released. Movement of cerebral spinal fluid optimized and balance restored to the system.
Craniosacral Therapy has the ability to address a wide range of disorders: mental stress and anxiety, migraine headaches, chronic neck and back pain, TMJ syndrome, musculoskeletal disorder, fibromyalgia, and immune and central nervous system disorders.
