CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle form of bodywork which enhances the body’s natural healing abilities. Non-invasive and supportive, the treatment is safe for pregnant women, babies, children and the elderly.
CranioSacral Therapy is suited for various conditions, diseases and illnesses from neck and back pain to headache and depression. Light touch is used to help the release of tensions, traumas and injuries.
During treatment, the patient lies fully clothed on a massage table while the therapist feels and assesses the restrictions in body tissues influencing the CranioSacral system. With gentle hand pressure, the therapist facilitates and supports the body’s natural healing process.
Some of the conditions which may respond favorably to treatment:
o Emotional problems
o Chronic Neck and Back Pain
o Frozen shoulder
o Stress and Tension-Related Disorders
o Chronic Fatigue
o Post dental trauma
o TMJ/jaw disorders
o Muscular aches & pains
o Spinal curvatures (scoliosis/kyphosis)
