Craniosacral Therapy

We are now introducing craniosacral therapy in our office!

Maryn in particular practices craniosacral massage therapy. Most of us may ask, “What is craniosacral massage therapy?” In her own words Maryn says, “Craniosacral Therapy is a very gentle modality. The therapist is more of a guide than anything else, bringing the body’s attention to where there are restrictions and then supporting the body as it addresses these spots. Because it is the body healing itself and moving in ways it is comfortable, it is much safer than other, more aggressive techniques. And very deeply relaxing as well.” With that, craniosacral therapy addresses the craniosacral system. The craniosacral system includes: cerebrospinal fluid, the lining of the brain and spinal cord that contains cerebrospinal fluid, the bony attachments and the mechanisms that produce and reabsorb cerebrospinal fluid. The craniosacral therapist searches for areas of restriction in the body that may be restricting the craniosacral system from functioning at its optimum.

All this information brings us to the question, “What is a craniosacral therapy session like?” One hour is recommended for the full benefit of this therapy.  By quietly resting the hand on your skull and sacrum, the therapist evaluates your craniosacral rhythms. This alone can create a shift in energy. Sometimes the therapist’s hands become aware of places along the column where energy is stuck or heated. The therapist then uses the bones of the sacrum and cranium as “handles” to manipulate the deeper layer of fluid and membranes. The therapist doesn’t use any instruments.

What can craniosacral therapy help with? CST can help with an extensive amount of symptoms. Some of which include, headaches, body aches, neck issues, back issues and TMJ. These are just a few out of many things that CST can help with.

There are few systems in the body that have as much influence on the central nervous system as the craniosacral system-having it healthy and fully functioning can make a world of difference in your physical, emotional and spiritual health.
