Overview

The theory behind Cranial Sacral Therapy is based on the idea that the subtle motion of the cranial bones has an effect on the many tissues, fluids and systems at the core of the human body.  Using gentle touch, the therapist manipulates the cranial sacral system (comprised of the bones and soft tissues of the cranium, spine and pelvis) to restore balance to the nervous system and its surrounding structures. Cranial Sacral Therapy can reduce/alleviate anxiety, migraine headaches, TMJ, the effects of whiplash as well as improve overall health emotional and physical health and sleep. Students will develop palpatory sensitivity and an understanding of the activities of the cranial bones and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).
