Craniosacral Therapy

Our brain controls everything in our body, sending billions of signals through our nervous system every second. Few structures have as much influence over the body’s ability to function properly as the brain and spinal cord. And the central nervous system is heavily influenced by the craniosacral system – the membranes and fluid that surround, protect and nourish the brain and spinal cord.

Craniosacral Therapy Technique

To help remedy this imbalance, we use a manual application of force to the body. The noninvasive session involves a trained specialist applying gentle pressure to 10 different spots on the body. These spots called listening stations allow the doctor to find where the body stores the imbalance. Once detected, the doctor will apply gentle pressure to relieve head, neck, and back compression. This soothes pain and releases both emotional and physical stress. It can be used to help conditions such as:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Migraines
  • Neck and back pain
  • Stress-related disorders
  • Orthopedic issues
  • Child disorders
  • Immune disorders
  • PTSD
  • Emotional difficulties
  • Spinal cord and brain injuries
