Craniosacral

cranio sacral therapyCraniosacral Therapy was developed by Dr. John Upledger, an osteopath, in the 1970s. It is based on an approach popularized by Dr. William Sutherland, an osteopath in the early 1900’s.

The craniosacral system (cranio means head and sacral refers to the area at the base of the spine) includes the brain and spinal cord. They are bathed in a craniosacral fluid that has a rhythmic pulse, similar to blood pressure.

The craniosacral therapist senses the pulse and looks for any subtle restrictions in the flow of craniosacral fluid.

Restrictions are believed to be the cause of poor health, especially conditions related to the brain, spine, and nervous system.

  • Fibromyalgia and other connective tissue disorders

What a Typical Craniosacral Treatment is Like

During a craniosacral therapy session, a therapist senses subtle motions while looking for any restrictions impeding the free motion of the craniosacral system and various body regions, tissues, organs, and subtle energy systems. Manual techniques using very light touch help release those restrictions.

Craniosacral therapy takes place while you lay on your back. You may wear comfortable clothes, but it can also be done through the sheet and blankets if you are unclothed.

Sleeping much better

WOW...did I ever enjoy that massage last week. So much "stuff" moved and shifted! I'm sleeping so much better...not nearly as stressed out about the condo stuff. It will all work out the way it needs to. Thanks again for such a powerful experience.
