Craniosacral Touch

Many of you know that I used to practice massage therapy (I still do for my family & close friends).

For the past 10 years, on top of massage sessions, I have received many sessions of Craniosacral therapy, and absolutely loved this light touch modality, its deep relaxation and health benefits.

Last year, I decided to dive into its study. It is pretty fascinating!

What is it about?

Craniosacral therapy was pioneered and developed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger following extensive scientific studies from 1975 to 1983 at Michigan State University, where he served as a clinical researcher and Professor of Biomechanics.

Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord (from cranium to sacrum).

Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the Craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.

What Conditions is Craniosacral Touch suitable for?

By complementing the body's natural healing ability, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction, including but not limited to:

* Autism * Central Nervous System Disorders * Chronic Fatigue * Chronic Neck and Back Pain * Colic * Concussion * Emotional Difficulties * Fibromyalgia and other Connective-Tissue Disorders * Infantile Disorders *Infertility * Learning Disabilities * Motor-Coordination Impairments * Neurovascular or Immune Disorders *Orthopedic Problems * Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Post-Surgical Dysfunction * Scoliosis * Stress and Tension-Related Problems * Traumatic Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries *Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)...

As I am studying, I also need to practice a lot (I already do that with my close family & my studying group) and would love to welcome you for a free session.

A session takes place in a quiet setting. You remain fully clothed as you relax on a comfortable table.  Each person is unique, so each session is unique. It lasts about 60 minutes.
