Craniosacral Therapy

Enclosed in a sac of fluid, the brain and spinal cord are protected from forces the body may experience. Out of this sac come the nerves that send energy to the various body parts. Taking advantage of small movements in the skull bones and the sacrum, Craniosacral Therapy involves the subtle application of force to the covering of the sac known as the dura. By applying gentle pressure with the fingers, the therapist improves the flow of the fluid around the spinal cord. This, in turn, eases tightness that forms along the sack and frees the nerves to better transmit signals. The result is improved energy, reduced pain and increased freedom of movement.
