Craniosacral Therapy
Program Details (Back to Programs)

Craniosacral therapy is a very gentle, non-invasive hands on osteopathic technique that works with the body’s self-correcting mechanisms to affect multiple structural and physiological systems.

The craniosacral system is comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord including the bones of the skull and the sacrum. Using delicate touch, the practitioner works to detect and release strain and restrictive patterns that disturb the rhythmic movement of the craniosacral system and the function of the central nervous system.

Treatment is aimed at releasing tensions deep in the body tissues to reduce pain, dysfunction, and improve whole-body health and performance by facilitating the body’s natural healing processes.

Craniosacral therapy induces deep relaxation by balancing the part of your nervous system responsible for the flight/fight response with the part responsible for restoration, and relaxation. This therapy focusses on the whole being and can bring calm to the mind and body.
