CranioSacral Therapy is an effective way to alleviate a wide range of illnesses and pains, including tension headaches, migraine headaches, and chronic neck pain and back pain, among others. CranioSacral physical therapy is a light-touch manual therapy that increases movement of the cerebral spinal fluid into the brain and treats restrictions in the CranioSacral system.
The CranioSacral system consists of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. The system extends from the bones of the skull, face, and mouth (cranium), down to the tailbone (sacrum) area. This system is important for the development and performance of the brain and spinal cord. An imbalance in the system can cause a number of health challenges.
