GOODBYE FIGHT OR FLIGHT.
HELLO PEACE OF MIND.
WELCOME TO CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY.
As a modality, Craniosacral therapy (aka Cranial Sacral) is gentle, relaxing, highly impactful, and subtle. It does not use oil or lotion and takes place directly on the skin or through the clothing/sheet depending on the area of the body that needs attention.
This modality calms the parasympathetic nervous system, helps align the skull bones, and promotes healthy spinal fluid flow between the sacrum (tailbone) and head. It improves all sorts of issues including physical, hormonal, emotional etc… People who suffer from migraines, headaches, PTSD, trauma, stress, grief, and anxiety benefit greatly from these treatments. Prepare to decompress and emerge feeling rested and at peace.

ALWAYS IN MOTION
The illustration below shows how the skull is in constant movement, a pumping or liquid breathing of the cerebrospinal fluid, maintaining steady pressure around the brain and along the spinal cord. The “Cranio” part of Craniosacral is meant to help this movement be as flowing as possible, by helping the flexible skull sutures maintain healthy connections.
