Cranio-sacral Therapy


I’ll bet you didn’t know that your head is made up of 22 separate bones!  They can become misaligned and I am trained to treat them just like I treat the spine.  I have been studying the mechanics of the cranial system for several years and completed my post-graduate work in April of 2004. 

The craniosacral system consists of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.  It extends from the bones of the skull, face, and mouth (which make up the cranium) down to the tailbone area (or sacrum).  The role of this system in the development and performance of the brain and spinal cord is so vital that an imba lance or dysfunction in it can cause sensory, motor and/or neurological disabilities.  

The goal of craniosacral work is to help the body to maintain the normal fluid balance in the system.  This is done by using light pressure (no heavier than the weight of a nickel) on the bones of the skull (mainly) and tailbone to release restrictions in the system. 

This therapy is a wonderful addition to any treatment in the office, however it really works well with children (especially newborns), pregnant women and the elderly.  This therapy gives me the ability to really fine tune the care and get to those really difficult health conditions.  CST has been used to successfully treat: ADD, hyperactivity, birth trauma, learning disabilities, insomnia, fatigue, headaches, poor digestion, anxiety, tempromandibular joint dysfunction, musculoskeletal disorders, autism, and pain syndromes to name a few.  CST works to reverse the debilitating effects of stress by providing the conditions in which the nervous system can rest and rejuvenate.
