Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on healing modality that focuses on the wave-like rhythmic pulse that goes through the entire body. This therapy stems from osteopathy, which is an approach that emphasizes the role of the musculoskeletal system in health and disease.
In a typical session, the client lies quietly, fully clothed, while the practitioner makes light contact at selected points around the head, torso, knees, and feet. This light contact consists of gentle finger pressure, with no bone manipulation or forceful thrusts such as those used in chiropractic work, bone-setting, or osteopathy.
The practitioner notes what he or she perceives at selected points on the body and in the craniosacral system (the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord), as well as the client’s attitude and intentions. The goal of craniosacral therapy is to help get rid of restrictions in this system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.
Relief from TMJ and orthodontic treatment through the use of myofascial release in the mouth and tooth un-winding, as well as releases in the jaw is an experience which cannot be described in words. Cranio-sacral therapy is integral to assisting the nervous system as well as relieving facial restrictions. Relief from whiplash, concussions, and post operations, the balancing that cranio-sacral gives, advances your healing to another level. Laura has advanced training in cranio-sacral and is a teacher’s assistant with the Upledger Foundation. She has taken classes through Somato-emotional Release II, which benefits you with your healing progression.
