At the end of this month, I’ll be continuing my training in CranioSacral Therapy. I’m very excited to offer this new service to my clients. But many of you may be wondering what CranioSacral Therapy is, and why you would want it.
CranioSacral Therapy is based on the theory that the craniosacral system, which is composed of the membranes and fluid surrounding the spinal cord and brain, greatly impacts the central nervous system. Similar to your fascia, your craniosacral system is sensitive to the daily minor and large injuries suffered by your body. These injuries can add up to strain and distort your craniosacral system, putting pressure on your central nervous system. When your central nervous system is under stress, your other internal systems can likewise be negatively affected.
Using a light touch – think of the weight of a nickel – I make subtle manipulations to your skull and spinal cord. These adjustments are designed to return your craniosacral system to a healthy state of balance so that your central nervous system can function healthily.
CranioSacral Therapy looks at the patient as a whole, rather than focusing on the single issue for which they are being seen. It is this view that drew me in, and it fits well with my holistic approach to wellness.
In addition to preventing illness, CranioSacral Therapy can be beneficial for many existing ailments, such as:
• Migraines and headaches
• Chronic back and neck pain
• Stress and tension problems
• Orthopedic issues
• Chronic fatigue
