Craniosacral therapy or cranial sacral therapy is a gentle, massage bodywork modality. Rooted in osteopathic medicine, Craniosacral Therapy is based on the theory that cerebrospinal fluid ebbs and flows within the membrane around the brain and spinal cord, increasing or decreasing pressure on the cranium in the process.
Whether through illness or injury, the craniosacral rhythmic flow may be disrupted or impeded, resulting in chronic pain, discomfort or ailments such as recurring ear and sinus infections, migraine headaches, neck and back pain.
Through this gentle Holistic Massage Therapy, our therapists apply very light movements to the skull to mobilize the cranio-sacral rhythmic flow of fluid. By doing so, they can help increase relaxation and improve circulation in order to promote positive healing effects throughout your body.
According to the Annals of Behavioral Medicine "Study participants who received bodywork like Cranial Sacral Therapy had better quality sleep and fewer migraines than participants who didn't".
