Craniosacral therapy is very beneficial for conditions such as post-traumatic stress, post-surgical dysfunction, neck and back pain, scar tissue, depression and anxiety, chronic headaches, motor coordination impairment, and much more. It is an excellent tool for healing, both in conjunction with acupuncture and herbal medicine, and on its own.
During the treatment bones and fascia are slowly and subtly shifted in order to help the body to untwist and release areas of tension that are causing pain, stress, and dysfunction.
On a physical level, the releases in the craniosacral membranes enhance the flow of cerebrospinal fluid around the brain and spine, which optimizes the functioning of the central nervous system. The easing of tension and restrictions in the deep fascia relieves pain affecting the muscles, joints and internal organs.
The releases also have a beneficial effect on emotional health, helping the body to free itself of suppressed emotions and trauma that have become locked in the organs and tissues. These changes allow healthier, more balanced patterns to be established.
