CranioSacral therapy is a gentle healing modality that focuses on releasing tension and restrictions in the soft tissue as well as the membranes surrounding the central nervous system. As the name implies, it encompasses the Cranium down to the Sacrum. However the techniques can be applied to any part of the body. It can be done through clothing or integrated into a massage.
When the nervous system has tension with in it, it can not function at optimal levels. As we know the nerves control the body, so if they aren’t happy- no one is happy!! This technique calms and rebalances the nervous system leaving the client feeling rested and calm. Restrictions in the CranioSacral system can lead to head aches, TMJ dysfunction, neck compression, SI joint disfunction, shoulder pain, restricted diaphragm and so on.
I have been practicing this subtle yet powerful technique for over a decade now and the results never cease to amaze me. People love deep tissue, but the body responds best to a lite touch, where it is allowed to follow it’s own path and unwind in the best way for it. In this case, less is more when it’s a chronic on going issue.
