Acupressure, Massage, & CranioSacral Therapies

CranioSacral TherapyMassaging Patient's Back

CranioSacral uses gentle techniques to normalize the craniosacral system and allow the body to self-correct. By unravelling pain and dysfunction at the source, we can naturally help eliminate stress, strengthen resistance to disease, and enhance health in every dimension. Using a light touch, generally no more than the weight of a nickel, the therapist monitors the rhythm of the fluids that circulates throughout the central nervous system of the patient. Delicate hands-on techniques are then used to release tension. The result of a session is a central nervous system that is less restricted and a body that is better able to return to its greatest levels of health and performance.
