I have completed module 1 and 2 of this discipline with the Upledger Institute
The craniosacral system is made up of the membranes and fluid that surround the brain and spinal cord. It influences many body functions so an imbalance or constriction here can affect sensory, motor and intellectual function.
CranioSacral therapy is a gentle procedure for locating and releasing obstructions to the cranial system’s rhythm. By applying light sustained pressure to key areas of the body like the head, jaw, neck, spine and sacrum, constrictions can be released. This gentle, motionless touch is so calming that clients frequently go to sleep!
The client remains fully clothed during this treatment and usually lies on their back or on their side.
CranioSacral therapy helps clear the way for our self-healing mechanisms to be more effective, so its scope is very wide indeed. Conditions helped include:
- Chronic back pain
- Headaches and migraines
- Jaw problems
- Menstrual and menopausal problems
- Reduced mobility
I have completed specialist training in craniosacral therapy.
