Cranial Sacral Therapy (also known as craniosacral therapy) is a simple procedure involving light, therapeutic touch administered to the head, neck, and other troublesome areas that prevents the problematic exchange of cerebrospinal fluid (or what is called arterial pressure) throughout the body, targeting cranial bone movement. Certified Practitioners of this therapy use selective pressures to manipulate the cranial bones, offering guests the feeling of deep relaxation during and after the session. Clinical studies have also determined that Cranial Sacral Therapy has reduced the incidence of adverse affects in patients who have suffered traumatic brain syndrome as well as other accidents. Depending on the area or areas receiving treatment, Cranial Sacral Sessions can last anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour. The guest will lie on their back with the certified therapist gently examining the head and neck areas. The therapist will usually begin at the cranial base, located at the back of the skull where stress and blockage at this location are commonly attributed to be the cause of Migraines as well as other types of headaches. By targeting this area, the therapist opens up the tissues and alleviating pain caused in this area.
