The craniosacral system embodies the membranes and fluid that surround, protect and nourish the brain and spinal cord. Like the other tissues in the body, these tissues can tighten and cause tension to form around the brain and spinal cord resulting in restrictions. This can create a barrier to the healthy performance of the central nervous system, and potentially every other system it interacts with.
Craniosacral Therapy may help relieve such restrictions, chronic pain and dysfunction, as well as a wide variety of impairments, including:
- Migraine Headaches
- Chronic Neck and Back Pain
- Motor-Coordination Impairments
- Central Nervous System Disorders
- Orthopedic Problems
- Concussions and Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- TMJ Syndrome
- Learning Disabilities
- Chronic Fatigue
- Emotional Difficulties
- Stress and Tension-Related Problems
- Neurovascular or Immune Disorders
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Post-Surgical Dysfunction
At Foundations, craniosacral therapy is offered in conjunction with massage therapy.
How Craniosacral Therapy Works
Craniosacral Therapy is non-invasive and uses an incredibly soft touch to help release tension and improve overall health and performance.
This is done by evaluating the craniosacral ease of motion and rhythm of the cerebrospinal fluid, then applying gentle pressure to release restrictions in any tissue impacting the central nervous system. Thus, helping to improve the function of the central nervous system and allowing your body the ability to heal naturally.
