Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle form of bodywork that works closely with the central nervous system using light-touch and gentle traction. It helps release the bone and tissue restrictions in the body that are causing pain and dysfunction.
The brain and spinal cord heavily influence the body’s ability to function properly. They make up the Central Nervous System, which is influenced by the craniosacral system - the membranes and fluid that surround, protect and nourish the brain and spinal cord.
The body must work to compensate for the stresses and stains it endures each day. These changes unfortunately cause body tissues to tighten and distort the craniosacral system. Restrictions are a result from these distortions that cause tension to form around the brain and spinal cord. This can create a blockage for a healthy central nervous system.
By complementing the body's natural healing processes, Craniosacral Therapy is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to increase resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction, including:
· Migraine Headaches
· Chronic Neck and Back Pain
· Central Nervous System Disorders
· Orthopedic Problems
· Learning Disabilities
· Chronic Fatigue
· Emotional Difficulties
· Stress and Tension-Related Problems
· Fibromyalgia and other Connective-Tissue Disorders
· Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)
· Neurovascular or Immune Disorders
· Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
· Post-Surgical Dysfunction
· Postpartum healing
