CranioSacral

craniosacral-229x162Restore your vital pulse

Developed by John E. Upledger, CranioSacral therapy has its roots in osteopathy.
The CranioSacral system consists of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Within the system the cerebrospinal fluid pulses in a slight but perceptible tide-like manner, moving through the cranium, down the spinal column and back to the cranium. By using a skilled, gentle non-invasive touch on the plates of the skull, the therapist can affect the membranes, and assists in facilitating change in areas of restriction where the fluid motion is disrupted, limited, confined, and immobilized. Once a more rhythmic and balanced flow is restored, the body’s natural healing processes and mechanism are enhanced, ultimately affecting the entire body.

CranioSacral as been shown to:

  • improve the functioning of the central nervous system
  • dissipate the negative effects of stress
  • minimize chronic pain
  • reduce insomnia
  • enhance health
  • increase resistance to disease
