Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle hands-on form of bodywork that has a deeply calming effect on your central nervous system (CNS) and works with the body's innate ability to heal itself.

 

The many benefits can include:

  • relaxing and balancing the nervous system

  • releasing muscle tension and headaches

  • calming and relieving physical and emotional pain, stress, and discomfort

  • supporting healthy sleep and digestion

  • alleviating depression, anxiety and PTSD

Your central nervous system consists of your brain and spinal cord, from the cranium (cranio) to the sacrum (sacral). The craniosacral system includes the bones, soft tissues, and fluids that protect your CNS. Almost every structure and function in the body is influenced by your brain and spinal cord so any dysfunction in your craniosacral system can have a profound effect on you. Dysfunction can happen for many reasons including trauma, injury, muscle tension and postural patterns. In a Craniosacral Therapy treatment, delicate manual techniques locate, assess, and release problem areas and improve the form and function of your CNS.

What to expect

During the treatment I will gently hold areas of your body (such as the feet, sacrum, diaphragm, chest and head), listening and feeling with my hands to what your body's muscles, fascia and fluids are communicating. In this meditative space, your body is given space to speak through its rhythms and tension patterns. As your body is ready, the release of held patterns and a return to balance can be facilitated through manual and/or somato-emotional release techniques.

The client remains fully clothed and simply lies in a comfortable position on a padded treatment table. To support health and reduce the spread of viral infection, Kristin will continue to wear a face mask but it is not expected of clients.
