Cranial Sacral Therapy
Cranial Sacral Therapy is a subtle and meditative practice that promotes deep healing and balancing of your central nervous system. By tuning into your body's physiological rhythm of cerebrospinal fluid, restrictions and strain patterns within the layers of your cranium are gently released.
Your Cranial Sacral system includes the cerebrospinal fluid and membranes that surround your brain and spinal cord. It extends from the cranium through your spine to your sacrum. Distortions in the natural cranial rhythm result from injuries and stress. Birth trauma, childhood injuries, car accidents, head trauma and psychological trauma all impact you physically, emotionally and energetically. Cranial Manipulation can assist with a wide range of issues including migraines, insomnia, neck pain, TMJ, head trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
As a practitioner of Cranial Manipulation, I will use subtle touch to feel the cranial rhythm and apply gentle pressure to release tension. In addition to unwinding and releasing restrictions, trauma and pain, Cranial Sacral Therapy allows you to drop into deep relaxation. This state of deep relaxation creates alpha brain waves. This Alpha Brain Wave state allows for daydreaming and conscious mindfulness or meditation. It is the gateway to your subconscious mind and intuition. Deep healing happens during this time as stress is released from your nervous system and your body's own healing process is enhanced.
Anyone can benefit from Cranial Sacral Therapy. If you suffer with anxiety, emotional stress or the effects of trauma, it can be life changing.
This method of Cranial Manipulation is as taught by Jim Asher of the Colorado Cranial Institute and the Rolf Institute in Boulder, Colorado.
All Rolfing sessions may include some Cranial Manipulation.
