Craniosacral therapy, a holistic technique, works through the various levels in the body impacting the musculoskeletal, nervous, cardio-vascular, circulatory, and immune systems along with the organs, tissues, and fascia. It’s a non-invasive healing process that works through gentle touch to release stress, disturbance, injury, and deep-seated trauma. The best thing about the therapy is that it benefits an entire range of problems, which range from minor aches to severe chronic conditions.
Craniosacral therapy is a gentle hands-on treatment that assists the release of the body’s connective tissue or “fascia”, which is a covering found throughout the body including organs, glands, nerves, muscles, blood vessels, brain, and spinal cord. Fascia forms a body-wide connective network.
Craniosacral therapy confirms that the body is interrelated at all levels.
Conditions in which craniosacral therapy is helpful
Craniosacral therapy session
A craniosacral therapy session is very similar to massage therapy. The only difference is that you stay fully clothed. The session begins with a consultation with your therapist. An initial consultation is important to identify troubled areas. During the session, soft music and low lighting are used to increase the relaxation state.
Using gentle pressure techniques, the therapist assesses the existence of possible disruptions and/or restrictions in the fascial system. The light hand touch and fascial release help the muscles and organs naturally relieve stress, improving function. Many people feel a sense of deep relaxation.
A craniosacral therapy session takes between 45 minutes to an hour, depending on each person’s experience and response to the therapy. Regarding the number of sessions, it depends on the severity of the condition.
More about Craniosacral therapy
Craniosacral therapy can be taken by anyone, which includes newborns, pregnant women, and the elderly. There is no such age restriction for the therapy.
As the therapy respects the innate ability of the body to heal itself, it doesn’t interfere with any treatment a person is currently undergoing. The fact is that the therapy enhances and speeds up recovery.
