Cranial Sacral Therapy


This light touch therapy is done while the client lies supine (face up) on the massage table. The client is clothed. The therapist discerns the body’s cranial sacral rhythm, which occurs as the cerebral spinal fluid fills and empties around the brain and along the spine, or dural tube. The places of non-movement are detected, and released from the cranium and along the spine. The cranial nerves, systems of the body, and the fascia of the body are affected positively as restrictions are released. Balance and healing occur as the body’s normal movement returns to full function. The boney parts of the skeleton are accessed with light touch, i.e. the pelvis, sacrum, spine, neck, and bones on the skull. Accessing soft tissue, the tongue, teeth, and cheek bones inside the mouth opens the passage way for expression, releasing dental, or other mouth related traumas. Facilitated, gentle movement of the limbs also releases stored energy, or energy cysts.
