CRANIAL SACRAL THERAPY

 

Cranial Sacral Therapy - A gentle hands-on technique that allows direct balancing and healing access to the nervous system. By using subtle palpitations and light pressure points of the cranium and sacrum, the natural healing capabilities of your body are enhanced.

 

 

The flow of cerebrospinal fluid can become blocked. Cranial sacral therapy is primarily comprised of subtle and gentle techniques to release any blockages inhibiting the free flow of cerebrospinal fluid. Adjusting the cranial bones restores mobility to this enclosed system and reduces stress on all of the involved tissues. It is especially helpful for the following conditions:

  • Headaches
  • Head injuries
  • Ear infections
  • Birth trauma
  • Temporal Mandibular Disorder (TMJ)
  • Insomnia and Anxiety
  • Autism
  • Seizures
