Stillness in the midst of motion and commotion
is free of will, direction, and time.
It is a complete letting be of what is from moment to moment.
—Toni Packer, “Unmasking the Self”
CranioSacral Therapy releases tensions and restrictions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction improving whole-body health. It focuses on the concept of “primary respiration” the cranial rhythmic impulse and regulating the flow of cerebrospinal fluid using a light therapeutic touch, which helps free up the central nervous system so it can perform at its best, naturally relieving pain and stress, strengthening the immune system, and enhancing health. Once tensions are released the entire body can relax and self correct.
The CranioSacral system is a rhythm pump like the heart and lungs that spans between the cranium and the sacrum connected by membranes. These tissues create a semi-closed hydraulic pump system that bathes the spinal cord and brain in cerebrospinal fluid, which provides vital nourishment, detoxification, and protection. A healthy and balanced CranioSacral rhythm energizes the functioning of the brain, spinal cord, and nervous system.
The gentleness of CranioSacral Therapy makes it effective for all ages, from newborns to elders. In a typical session you remain in comfortable clothing on a massage table. Your therapist will gently monitor the rhythm of the fluid of your central nervous system to locate areas of weak fluid flow or tissue motion. Delicate manual techniques are then applied to release problem areas. CranioSacral Therapy can be used alone or integrated with other therapies to suit your needs. Although one session provides healing, continuing the work with a series of weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly sessions will increase the benefits.

• Migraines & Headaches

• Stress & Tension-Related Disorders
