CranioSacral Therapy works with the whole spine, neck and head to release restrictions within those areas so that the flow of cerebral spinal fluid moves more freely, giving tissues more oxygen and nutrition and flushing out toxins and debris. It is a very gentle, but powerful modality that truly affects the whole body. CranioSacral therapy is very relaxing and calming to the nervous system as well. It is a "hands on" healing system where I have learned to listen acutely with all of my senses to develop an ability to tune into the subtle physical and energy cues of the client on the therapy table.
Early exploration of cranial manipulation was performed primarily by osteopaths and chiropractors and a man by the name of Dr. John Upledger developed the techniques to teach health care practitioners the modality. He also taught family members how to do cranial work on their children/spouses/families who needed ongoing work. The Upledger Institute is in West Palm Beach Florida where people can go for intensive CranioSacral therapy.
