Craniosacral Therapy, as a form of manual therapy, uses a soft touch to evaluate and enhance the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.
Craniosacral Therapy generally improves the quality of life. It supports the body’s innate ability to balance and heal itself, as well as improves the functioning of the central nervous system, helps to reduce stress, improve immune function, return physical vitality and well-being.
By releasing restrictions in the craniosacral system, the therapy supports to normalize cerebrospinal fluid circulation, balance nerve function, release restrictions in the fascial system, facilitate muscle relaxation, enhance blood circulation in the cranium and the body.
Craniosacral Therapy has a positive effect on the functioning of the central nervous system, musculosceletal system, cardiovascular system, immune system, energy system, as well as the various organs, connective tissues, and body fluids.
Due to the extremely light touch used during treatment, Craniosacral Therapy is suitable for everyone from newborns to the elderly.
