Cranio Sacral Therapy is a light-touch approach that can create dramatic improvements in your life. It releases tension deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. Few body structures have more influence over your central nervous system than the craniosacral system (the soft tissue and fluid that protect your brain and spinal cord.
CranioSacral therapy releases those tensions to allow the entire body to relax and self-correct. Using a gentle touch - starting with light weight- the practitioner evaluates your internal environment. Then they use distinctive light-touch techniques to release any restrictions they find. By freeing the central nervous system to perform at it's best, CrainioSacral therapy naturally eliminates pain and stress, strengthens your resistance to disease, and enhances your health and well-being.

What Can I Expect From a Session?
A typical CranioSacral session takes place in a quiet setting. You remain fully clothed as you relax on a padded massage table. Your therapist begins by monitoring specific areas with light-touch. The monitored areas correlate to parts of your body that have dense fluid flowing through your central nervous system. By carefully listening with the hands to locate areas of weak fluid flow or tissue motion, your practitioner can trace those areas of weakness through the body to the original source of dysfunction.
Delicate manual techniques are then used to release those problem areas and improve the form and function of your central nervous system. A CranioSacral Therapy session can last up to and hour or more. It can be used alone or integrated with other therapies to create powerful effects. What you experience from your own session is highly individual. The sessions are generally deeply relaxing, creating feelings of warmth or gentle pulsing in the areas the therapist is working on.
