Craniosacral Therapy

What is Craniosacral Therapy?

Craniosacral Therapy  is a type of bodywork derived from the 20th century Osteopathic Medical field. Craniosacral Therapy focuses specifically on the anatomy and physiology of the Central Nervous System, its supporting structures, and the cerebral spinal fluid (CSF). The ventricles in the brain manufacture CSF and also function like a pump, causing the CSF to move the supporting structures, much like the ocean moves seaweed. This tidal wave-like rhythm or pulse penetrates every cell of the body perpetuating the body’s ability to express inherant health. The more balanced this pulse, the more health can be expressed and the better the person’s system will feel.

What do you do during a Craniosacral Therapy session?

Although most easily felt at the head and base of the spine, from anywhere on the body and with a very gentle touch I begin to palpate for your body’s CSF pulse noticing how it relates to surrounding structures in the brain, skull, spine, viscera (or organs), arms and legs. Through this pulse, your body reveals to my hands areas of openness, compression, stagnation, twists, ease of movement, and lack of movement. Your body and I work together to create a more balanced CSF flow throughout your entire system. By increasing circulation and relaxation, decreasing inflammation, and releasing holding patterns, your body is able to move through space and manage physical and emotional conditions with more ease.

What does Craniosacral Therapy feel like?

During a session, many clients report feeling very deep relaxation, like they are being gently rocked or rolled, a wave like movement throughout the body, expansion, clearing, decongestion, and increased expansion of breath. Sensations may vary from person to person and session to session. Every session is unique.
