Craniosacral Therapy

What is Craniosacral Therapy?

Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle hands-on therapy that focuses on the body’s inherent wisdom in order to direct healing.  The practitioner “listens” to the craniosacral rhythm at various places on the client’s body in order “tune in” and discover the best way to affect positive change at any given time during a treatment.

The craniosacral rhythm is the pulse or flow of cerebrospinal fluid through the meninges of the spinal cord. This rhythmic pressure, is separate from the cardiovascular pulse and the flow of breath and can be detected quite clearly by the practitioner. It’s this rhythm that directs the session, dictating which cranial, sacral or other bones may need attention in order to release tension and allow the free flow of energy and/or cerebrospinal fluid.

Clients are fully clothed and begin supine (face up) on the treatment table while the practitioner conducts the session. Treatments are conducted in increments of 60 and 90 minutes.
