Craniosacral Therapy

What is Craniosacral Therapy?

Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on method of facilitating the release of restrictions in the craniosacral system. This system is composed of the membranes and craniosacral fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. It extends from the cranium (bones of the skull, face and mouth) down to the sacrum or tailbone area.

During a craniosacral session, the therapist listens to the body’s subtle rhythms and any patterns of inertia or congestion. She is then directed by the patient’s own physiology for natural healing. The intention of treatment is to facilitate the expression and movement of healthy bodily rhythms within a deep inner stillness and so enhance the body’s own self-healing and self-regulating capability.

Craniosacral therapy takes a whole-person approach to healing and the inter-connections of mind, body and spirit are deeply acknowledged.

This is an effective form of treatment for a wide range of problems because the craniosacral system influences so many other systems in the body. It is suitable for people of all ages including babies, children and the elderly, and can be effective in acute or chronic cases.

“Health is that perfect matrix that precedes form
and is present within us from the moment of conception”

From a client of Integrated Therapies:

“Being clinically diagnosed with ADHD as a young adult was the beginning of an endless search for the right medication, proper dosages and other helpful solutions to look for ways to focus my attention, control my emotional swings and clarify my mind. Having exhausted what seemed like all options: a variety of different drugs, psychologists and therapies, I came across cranio-sacral therapy. I had been told that it had been used as an alternative method to alleviate some of the symptoms associated with learning disabilities, anxiety and traumas. Even after my first session I noticed a significant difference in the ease I felt with things that usually were enough to ‘tip me over the edge”. During treatments I would enter into a deep state of relaxation and I could feel my body working out all the kinks as it was ‘communicating’ and opening up. Afterwards I would find that my focus became better, and I could limit my tantrums with my new sense of awareness and control of my body and mind. It almost felt like it was ‘magic’. I had never experienced anything so powerful with medication and so my perspective has shifted. I now regularly get cranio done and each time I am even more impressed by the results.”
