CranioSacral Therapy is a light-touch, non-invasive form of bodywork that helps release tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction, improving whole-body health and performance. By gently working with the soft tissues of the body, CranioSacral Therapy releases restrictions around the brain and spinal cord, allowing the body to self-correct and free itself of pain, dysfunction and negative patterns.
Our CranioSacral Therapists have the advanced skills and experience to help relieve a wide variety of conditions including, but not limited to:
- Acute or chronic pain
- Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue
- Sinus conditions
- Grief/emotional trauma
- Insomnia/sleep issues
- Stress/tension related disorders
- PTSD and/or anxiety
- Strains, sprains or injury
- Childhood conditions
- Digestive disorders
- Loss of purpose/direction
What Will You Experience During A Treatment?
You will be made comfortable and remain fully clothed while your therapist gently places their hands on or under different points of your body. At times, you may be very quiet to the point you fall into a deep, relaxed state… even sleep. Other times, you may dialogue with your therapist about emotions, memories or sensations that are pertinent to your healing. Following treatment, changes continue to integrate for several days/weeks as your various systems settle into a more natural balance and alignment.
How Many Treatments Will You Need?
Each person has highly individualized needs. Initially, a minimum of three treatments within 10 to 14 days is recommended. This is to determine what changes are occurring and to ascertain the frequency/intensity of treatment best for you and your goals. At times,a more intensive protocol may be required to break through long-standing dysfunctional patterns in order to create more efficient and healthful ways of functioning. Our therapists will discuss the number/frequency of treatments they specifically recommend for you at the end of your first session.
Are There Any Contraindications or Precautions for Treatment?
Generally, the gentle techniques we utilize are safe for mostly everyone. It is important that you are specific in completing the medical history forms that will be provided to you so that we may be aware of any precautions or contraindications for your treatment.
"CranioSacral Therapy is the only thing that helped the severe back pain I was experiencing, and prevented me from undergoing surgery. And even more important, it is the only thing that makes me truly relax! As a business owner, this is invaluable. It enables me to find clarity to make decisions, effectively manage my staff, and increase my productivity!
J.Z., Winter Park, FL
"This work helps me stay sane! It helps me quiet the negative self–talk and release the clutter, so I can connect with the ‘good thoughts’ I knew were in there. I find clarity, peace, and feel healthy and whole. I can be myself again!
"I was suffering from pain on my left side under my rib cage. It was too painful to play golf, run, go to the gym or do any other physical activities. I went through extensive medical testing prior to trying CranioSacral Therapy. All the results were negative, but the pain would not go away. CranioSacral Therapy has been invaluable and has allowed me to avoid surgery, and taught me the value of therapy, not only as restorative, but also as a preventative course of action."
