Craniosacral Therapy

BrainSpineThe popularity of Craniosacral Therapy has grown and many people ask: What is it? How can it help?

CranioSacral Therapy is a light touch technique that works to balance the cerebral spinal fluid flow through the spine and head, in simple terms. We all have restrictions due to stress, trauma, or other circumstances that affect the body. CranioSacral complements the body’s natural healing process and enhances functioning of that system of the body comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.

This technique was developed by Dr. John Upledger, D.O. He did this work out of Michigan State University.
His main clinic is now in Florida, but the techniques are taught around the world. Learn more about his classes here.

This technique is so gentle, relaxing, and balancing, it can be good for many people, including children. Some of the problems it may help to alleviate are:

Temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ)
Chronic neck and Back pain


Chronic Fatigue


Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

I have been practicing this technique for over 10 years, having taken three of the Upledger courses. Please contact me if you have any questions.
