What is CranioSacral Therapy?

CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, non-invasive technique for removing restrictions from the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord, the bones of the cranium and spinal column as well as the connective tissue throughout the body.

Over the past two decades Dr. John Upledger, founder of the Upledger Institute, has refined CranioSacral therapy and introduced it to medical establishments and the scientific community around the world. The technique is based on the idea that the motion of the subtle pulses of the cerebral spinal fluid (the fluid system that nurtures our central nervous system, from the brain to the tailbone) needs to be as free as possible for healthy functioning. Injuries, muscular strain, and tension can affect this cranial motion both locally and throughout the body via the connective tissue network. CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands on method of correcting or normalizing and freeing this motion.
