Cranio-Sacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on method that works on the fluid system that surrounds the brain and spine.
Like the pulse of the cardiovascular system, the Cranio-Sacral system has a rhythm that can be felt throughout the body. Using a very light touch, skilled practitioners can monitor this rhythm at key body areas to pinpoint the source of an obstruction or stress. Then the therapist can restore the natural movement of the fluid and related soft tissue to help the body self-correct.
The treatment itself involves the application of very light forces applied by the therapist’s hands. Limbs may be picked up and moved gently and slowly as the body tissues are allowed to relax. Usually a session lasts an hour.
