"Cranially based treatment is now one of the most successful and fastest growing approaches to mind-body healing. Providing access to the unity of structure and function of the organism, such therapy offers a simple, direct, and non-dogmatic means for tapping the body's inherent intelligence in a fluid and spontaneous way. The craniosacral system is no less than the structural aspect of the central nervous system. It's methods originate in neural behavior and emotional energy and include their manifestations throughout the tissues and organs of the body. Both a medical system with precise anatomical criteria and a therapeutic art requiring a practitioner to feel, interpret, and move energy, modern craniosacral therapy offers a unique way to perceive and influence the structural configuration of the brain itself in it's relationship to the body's architecture."

WHO CAN BENEFIT?
If you are suffering from any of the following symptoms, your body is telling you that your cranial system is probably imbalanced and needs help:
Migraines and Headaches
Chronic Neck and Back Pain
And Many Other Conditions
Craniosacral therapy is an option for facilitating recovery from injuries acquired in auto accidents, falls, sports etc. It is especially effective in cases of concussion, aka- traumatic brain injury.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Sessions take place in a quiet setting with the client lying on a massage table. Clients remain fully clothed and it is recommended that they wear loose, comfortable clothing. Therapists make light contact with different areas of the craniosacral system, sometimes staying with an area for 10 to 15 minutes. Sessions can last an hour and a half.
Most people report feeling very relaxed after their craniosacral therapy session, although experiences are as individual as those receiving and can vary from session to session.
