Cranial Sacral Therapy treatment technique is where the practitioner applies light pressure with their hands, predominantly around the head area, but the technique is applied to joints and musculokeletal pathology and lesions depending on the person’s symptoms. This light touch is used to balance the cranial sacral system of the body, which includes the bones, nerves, fluids and connective tissue of the cranium and spinal area. Cranial Sacral Therapy identifies and treats restrictions within the cranium (head), spine, pelvis and other areas. Such restrictions may imapir you normal body function and could present as a multitude of symptoms including headaches, back pain, migraines, neck pain, balance issues, or even lethargy and poor sleep.
It is a very relaxing, gentle and soothing treatment that is safe for everyone. Most people usually notice improvements in their symptoms after the first or second treatment. A course of five to six treatments is, however, usually recommended.
