Craniosacral Therapy

What is Craniosacral Therapy?

Craniosacral therapy derived out of osteopathic medicine. It is a non-invasive approach to healing and wellness that focuses on the gentle manipulation of the craniosacral system, which includes the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord. By applying light touch and skilled techniques, our practitioners aim to release restrictions, alleviate tension, and promote better flow of the cerebrospinal fluid. The ultimate goal is for you to feel relaxed and in less pain.

Benefits of Craniosacral Therapy

Pain Relief

Craniosacral therapy is often used to alleviate various types of pain, especially headaches, migraines, neck pain, and back pain.

Improved Sleep

Craniosacral therapy aims to reduce tension and improve relaxation, so you may experience better sleep patterns and a more restful night’s sleep.

Enhanced Healing

By improving the flow of cerebrospinal fluid and releasing restrictions in the craniosacral system, the body’s ability to heal and recover from injuries or illnesses might be enhanced.

Improved Emotional Wellbeing

CST can help you regain emotional balance and wellbeing after sessions. This can be due to the release of tension held in your body.

Stress and Anxiety Relief

The gentle touch and focus on relaxation could contribute to a sense of safety and calm for you if you struggle with anxiety and stress.

Increased Body Awareness

Through the gentle manipulations, you may become more attuned to your body. This can lead to better self-care and recognition of tension or discomfort.

Tim was very knowledgeable and took the time to really get to know what was going on with my injuries. Tim knew what was up with my shoulder and worked very hard to produce the results I was hoping for when I made my massage therapy appointment. I will definitely be coming back!
