Cranial Sacral Therapy encourages the body's self-healing and self-regulating capabilities. It is done in a non-invasive way where the practitioner subtly and gently palpates the cranial sacral rhythm. The guest can remain fully clothed. Most people feel a deep sense of relaxation and usually fall asleep. Everyone potentially can benefit, though with some, the improvement may be more dramatic than with others.
The cerebrospinal fluid bathes and protects the brain and spinal cord. The practitioner listens deeply to the fluctuations of the cerebrospinal fluid within the craniosacral system. By tapping into its rhythm the therapist encourages the client's system to move toward a healthy state. Crainosacral therapy is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction, including Migraine headaches, chronic neck and back pain, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and other connective tissue disorders.
