What is Craniosacral Therapy?

Craniosacral Therapy is a subtle and profound way of working with the body to assist the body’s natural capacity for self repair. In craniosacral therapy there is an understanding that health expresses itself through the craniosacral motion. This is the subtle rhythmic movement of the cerebrospinal fluid which surrounds the central nervous system and is expressed in a tide-like ebb and flow.

Life Expresses Itself As Motion

The bones of the head (cranium) and the base of the spine (sacrum) follow this movement known as the craniosacral motion. The free flowing health of this motion expressed through the different fluids and tissues of the body is essential to our well being. Stress, injury, illness, shock and trauma can get held in the body and the craniosacral motion can become unbalanced and restricted and can lead to physical, mental and emotional problems.
