What is Craniosacral Therapy?
Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle touch modality with roots in Osteopathy, a branch of medical practice that emphasizes treatment through structural balancing and nervous system health.
By balancing the nervous system we are given a doorway into the soft tissue (muscle, fascia and fluid systems) of the body where tension release and unwinding can happen on a deeper level than other bodywork modalities. It is this calm, restful nervous system state that facilities repair and healing in the body that is inaccessible when under stress or duress.
So many times in our modern lives and experiences, there is not enough space or time to pause or heal when injury occurs.
It is never too late to revisit the places in us that were interrupted, they can become profound catalysts to our next season of personal growth.

Craniosacral Therapy for Babies
Craniosacral Therapy is ideal for babies and children who may be experiencing tension or nerve issues and need a lighter touch as well as older people enduring chronic stress, PTSD or disruption of the nervous system. When we feel overwhelmed or overloaded, impact-driven modalities like massage and chiropractic can exacerbate our discomfort. In these instances, Craniosacral Therapy can be an effective option until the body can handle more direct treatments.
Infants and children are often referred for Craniosacral Therapy when a parent or professional notices baby has difficulty feeding or stiffness in their body like curving or looking in one direction. Left untreated, these symptoms can turn into delays in rolling and crawling or the development of plagiocephaly (head flattening). Often these issues are connected to tension from baby's intrauterine or birth experiences. Craniosacral Therapy, especially as part of a care team, can be helpful in unwinding this tension and the associated issues.
