Craniosacral Therapy

Thursday, April 01, 2010

Other therapy we’d like to incorporate with our practice:




The founding belief of craniosacral therapy is: As powerful directors of the body’s actions, the head and spine contain our most important communications pathways.

Craniosacral therapy consists of gentle, noninvasive, hands-on massage that corrects imbalances in the fluid system that connects the brain and spinal cord. Unlike other therapies craniosacral therapy focuses on a membrane, or sac, that contains cerebrospinal and other important fluids of nervous system.


The therapy was developed in the early 1970’s by osteopath John Upledger, D.O., is based on belief in the disputed existence of the craniosacral system, cardiovascular system or nervous system, and is believed to influence the development and performance of the body. Therapist says imbalance or restriction in the craniofacial system, sometimes dating back as far as birth, can potentially cause any number of sensory, motor or neurological disabilities.


The therapist uses a very gentle touch to detect restrictions and the subtle movements, often on the plates of the skull, to assist the hydraulic forces of the craniosacral system and encourage the body’s natural healing powers.


Applied by itself or in concert with other kinds of bodywork, craniosacral therapy can be sued to help relieve whiplash, head and neck injuries, temporomandibular join syndrome (TMJ), balance problems, effects of trauma and health professionals perform craniosacral work, including osteopaths, chiropractors, acupuncturists and physical therapist.
