After evaluating with light touch, therapy is applied to the head, neck
and spine to free the central nervous system to perform at its best.
day you endure stresses and strains that your body absorbs. Your body can only
handle so much tension before the tissues begin to tighten and potentially
affect the brain and spinal cord. If this occurs, it can compromise the function
of the central nervous system - and the performance of nearly every other system
in your body. CranioSacral therapy releases those tensions to allow the entire
body to relax and self-correct.
Using a gentle touch, starting with about the weight of a nickel,
practitioners evaluate your internal environment. Light touch techniques are
then employed during a CranioSacral session to
release any restrictions the therapist finds.
