What is Craniosacral Therapy?
Craniosacral therapy is a gentle hands-on therapy that focuses on the bones, tissues, and fluids that make up the craniosacral system, which includes the skull, spine, and pelvis. The therapy aims to release restrictions or tension in these areas to promote overall health and well-being.
Craniosacral therapy is based on the concept that the craniosacral system is connected to the central nervous system, and that any restrictions or imbalances in this system can affect the body's overall health and function. By releasing tension in the craniosacral system, craniosacral therapy can help to improve the functioning of the nervous system, boost the immune system, and promote relaxation and stress relief.
During a craniosacral therapy session, the practitioner will use gentle touch to assess and manipulate the craniosacral system. The touch is usually light and non-invasive, and patients may remain fully clothed during the session. The practitioner may place their hands on various parts of the body, including the head, neck, spine, and pelvis, to assess the craniosacral rhythm and identify any areas of tension or restriction.
Once the areas of tension are identified, the practitioner will use gentle techniques to release the tension and restore balance to the craniosacral system. These techniques may include light touch, gentle pressure, or holding specific points on the body. The goal is to help the body's natural healing processes to take over and promote overall health and well-being.
Craniosacral therapy is a safe and non-invasive therapy that can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including chronic pain, headaches, anxiety, depression, and digestive issues. It is often used as a complementary therapy to other treatments, such as acupuncture and massage therapy, to help promote overall health and wellness.
If you are interested in trying craniosacral therapy, it is important to work with a trained and experienced practitioner. A qualified practitioner can help you determine if this therapy is right for you and can provide safe and effective treatment to help you achieve optimal health and well-being.
"Kelsey is incredible! She is so calming, caring and she is a healer. I first went to her because I was getting constant headaches, but about a day and a half after she gave me cupping and acupuncture, my headaches basically disappeared. After experiencing nearly instant relief of my problem that had been bugging me for months, I started seeing her every few weeks for maintenance work and to iron out other things. My experiences with her made me a true believer in her practice and I think she is amazing at what she does."
