Craniosacral Therapy is a very gentle hands-on body therapy that uses light forces and specific holds to release blockages within the bodily tissues. The technique is based on the premise that unprocessed physical and emotional trauma is stored in the body’s tissues in an attempt to wall-off its harmful effects.

Through this therapy the balance and flexibility of the bodily tissues, soft tissues, skull, spinal column and pelvis are able to pulsate. This pulsing helps to create the forces necessary to circulate cerebrospinal fluid, which is important in the nourishing and insulating of sensitive neural structures of the brain and spinal cord. This in turn promotes increased vitality and enhanced health. Improving the function of this entire system has been known to have a positive effect on the health of those suffering from such things as autism, chronic pain, head injury, depression, learning disabilities including ADD and dyslexia, migraines, nervous disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, scoliosis, soft tissue injuries (especially from motor vehicle accidents and post-operative scarring) and sports injuries.

Tempromandibular Joint (TMJ) Syndrome/Head-Neck Pain
Craniosacral therapists often work in conjunction with dentists to manage TMJ Syndrome, as well as head and/or neck pain. The detailed assessment and treatment of tissue distortion in the neck, head and face/jaw complements dental care for these common complaints.

Craniosacral Therapy and Infants
The birth process is demanding on both mother and baby. As an exceedingly gentle procedure, craniosacral therapy is an effective approach to assessing and correcting birth trauma. Before and during birth, delicate nerve structures can be damaged if the forces exerted on the head and neck of the infant exceed its ability to recover. The therapy can alleviate symptoms related to these nerves including digestive problems (i.e. colic, excessive spitting up), inability to latch or suckle, irritability (i.e. back arching, excessive crying, poor sleep patterns), reduced or unequal head and neck posture or range of motion, failure to thrive, failure to meet motor and sensory milestones and lethargy (low activity level).
