Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, noninvasive method of evaluating and enhancing the function of a physiological body arrangement called the craniosacral system. The therapist connects deeply with complex internal rhythms and structures. Developed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger in 1985 after more than 15 years of clinical research, this manual therapy enhances the body’s natural healing processes. Craniosacral therapy has proven effective in treating a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction. These problems could include chronic pain, eye difficulties, scoliosis, motor-coordination impairments, learning disabilities and other health issues.
Craniosacral Therapy encourages the body’s natural healing mechanisms to improve the functioning of the central nervous system, dissipate the negative effects of stress, and enhance health and resistance to disease. The craniosacral therapy practitioner uses a light touch to assist the natural movement of fluid within the craniosacral system.
