CranioSacral therapy is a gentle bodywork technique developed in the 1970’s by John E. Upledger, an osteopathic doctor who first witnessed the rhythmic movement of the craniosacral system during a spinal surgery. CranioSacral therapy is performed on a person fully clothed. Using a light touch, the practitioner monitors the rhythm of the craniosacral system to detect potential restrictions and imbalances. The practitioner then uses delicate manual techniques to release those problem areas and relieve undue pressure on the brain and spinal cord.
CranioSacral therapy can help alleviate a range of illness, pain and dysfunction, including: migranes and headaches, learning disabilities, temporal mandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ), chronic fatigue, stress, high blood pressure, hormonal imbalances and infantile disorders such as poor breast feeding, colic or head injuries. A CranioSacral session lasts 20-60 minutes and leaves you feeling relaxed.
