CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle hands on manual therapy, which works through the components of the nervous system to facilitate healing.  It can be used to help relieve pain and dysfunction, facilitate emotional healing, and improve whole body performance.  Through therapist facilitation the body will often demonstrate exactly what is needed for healing.  The body’s ability to heal itself is an amazing thing, and CranioSacral Therapy works with this idea to facilitate whole person healing.

 

A typical adult CranioSacral session takes 60 minutes, and pediatric sessions can last between 30 and 60 minutes.  The therapy is provided in a quiet, calm, dimly lit room.  The client remains fully clothed and in a comfortable position on the table.  Through the CranioSacral Rhythm, the therapist is able to locate areas of dysfunction or in need of focused care.  Through a variety of manual techniques the therapist will work to help release and realign any dysfunctional tissues.  

 

Each session is individualized to the client on the table.
