“At the heart of each of us, whatever our imperfections, there exists a silent pulse of perfect rhythm, a complex of wave forms and resonances, which is absolutely individual and unique and yet which connects us to everything in the universe. The act of getting in touch with this pulse can transform our personal experience and in some way alter the world around us.”

~George Leonard.

Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral therapy is a hands-on, extremely gentle, non-invasive, light-touch therapy. It releases tensions and restrictions deep within the body that may have your system stressed out or on overload affecting your general health and wellbeing. By accessing and freeing the central nervous system, craniosacral therapy allows the body to relax so that the body’s natural healing processes can take over.

Craniosacral therapy sees the individual as a whole and sees the interconnectedness of body, mind, heart, spirit and soul. As the body feels supported, it releases the areas of restriction. You might experience changes and healing on a physical, spiritual or emotional level.

The craniosacral system comprises the bones of the cranium (head), the brain, the membranes and fluid surrounding the brain, the spinal cord and the sacrum. Cerebrospinal fluid circulates throughout the system to protect and nourish the brain and the nerves of the spinal cord. This fluid enclosed in connective tissue generates a rhythm or wave that can be palpated throughout the body by the craniosacral therapist. By palpating (with very sensitive touch) the craniosacral therapist can determine areas of restriction.  Using a very light touch and light pressure to gently manipulate these areas of restriction, he or she can balance the cranial rhythm or wave in the central nervous system and throughout the entire body.  This enhances the natural healing capacities of the body.

Craniosacral therapy helps with a variety of conditions such as migraines and headaches, neck and back pain, anxiety and depression, stress and tension related disorders, TMJ syndrome and scoliosis and other conditions. In children, it helps traumatic birth issues, learning disabilities, ADD/ADHD, central nervous system disorders, brain and spinal cord injuries and many other conditions.
