WHAT IS CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY?
CranioSacral Therapy is a light touch, whole body treatment method that works with the unique rhythms of your body to pinpoint and address problem areas. Delicate manual techniques are used to release those problem areas and improve the form and function of your central nervous system and improve the body's ability to self care.
CranioSacral Therapy was developed by Dr. John Upledger. The CranioSacral system includes the head, the spine and spinal cord, the sacrum and the tailbone. Within the head and spine are protective membranes containing a fluid called cerebrospinal fluid. Dr. Upledger discovered the unique wave-like rhythm of this fluid in 1970 during neck surgery.
Research has shown that this rhythm can be felt anywhere on the head or body. Examination of this rhythm can provide a great deal of information about problems that prevent the return to total wellness. Many problems self-correct by supporting the body to release any restrictions which obstruct the free flowing movement of the cerebrospinal fluid.
