5th Key – Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy

Balances each of the cranial bones and sacrum in therapeutic sessions to assess and palpate the fluidity of the craniosacral system, which affects the body’s overall health. This holistic, hands-on technique alleviates the restrictions on the craniosacral flow that can cause illness, pain and dysfunction.

Craniosacral therapy is a light-touch approach that can create dramatic improvements in your life. It releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. It helps relieve pain from migraines and headaches, chronic neck and back pain, stress and tension-related disorders, motor-coordination impairments, infant and childhood disorders, brain and spinal cord injuries, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, TMJ syndrome, scoliosis, CNS disorders, ADD/ADHD, learning disabilities, post-traumatic stress disorder, orthopedic problems and many other conditions. The sessions are deeply relaxing, creating feelings of warmth or gentle pulsing in the areas the therapist is working on.
