CranioSacral Therapy

                The craniosacral system has only been scientifically defined within the last three decades; it has existed since the beginning of time as we know it in every human being and animal possessing a brain and spinal cord.  It is a system which influences dynamic activity involving skull bones, meningeal membranes, cerebrospinal fluid, the intracranial vascular system, the development of the brain, the movement of body fluids, the tonicity of muscles, and the function of total body connective tissues.

                Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle noninvasive approach to the whole-body health.  Generally using about 5 grams of pressure, the practioner evaluates the craniosacral system by testing for the ease of motion and rhythm of cerebrospinal fluid.  Simple manual techniques are then used to release restrictions in fascia, membranes and other tissues that influence the craniosacral system.
