Natural Health > CranioSacral Therapy

Craniosacral therapy is a gentle hands-on approach that releases tensions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. Examples of conditions it can address include migraines and headaches, chronic neck and back pain, autism, stress and tension-related disorders, and more. (The Upledger Institute) In the early 1900s, Dr. Sutherland discovered that cranial sutures have small degrees of motion. This motion, which is connected to that of the craniosacral system, is supported by rhythms in the body. These rhythms determine the state of health. Health diminishes when the rhythms are disturbed by injury, stresses, trauma or toxicity. Craniosacral therapy aims to resolve these disturbances and enhance the body's self-healing.
