What is CranioSacral Therapy?

CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle therapy that facilitates healing of conditions such as back pain, neck pain and whiplash.

The CranioSacral system (“cranio” means head and “sacral” refers to the bone at the base of the spine) includes the brain and the spinal cord. They are bathed in cerebrospinal fluid that has a pulse similar to blood pressure.

The CranioSacral therapist senses the pulse and looks for any subtle restrictions in the flow of the fluid.  These restrictions can have many causes such as a blow to the head or the pelvis, birth trauma, orthodontics or surgery. Restrictions are believed to be the cause of poor health.

A CranioSacral session is often experienced as a deeply relaxing complementary therapy to regular health care.
