What is Craniosacral Therapy?

As we continue through life, we seem to battle different types of conditions on a weekly to monthly basis. Those who suffer from chronic conditions are always looking for ways to address them in order to live more comfortably. That’s why the experts here at CORE Physical Therapy have decided to explain a new type of therapy that helps a large amount of people!

What is Craniosacral Therapy?

Craniosacral Therapy is a type of treatment in which a soft touch is used to release restrictions that surround the central nervous system. This soft touch has a weight of no greater than 5 grams and has become a popular preventative health measure for its ability to help with the resistance of disease and medical problems that cause pain.

How does it work?

The craniosacral system holds membranes and fluid that surround, nourish, and protect the brain and spinal cord. After the stresses of your day, the tissues in the craniosacral system tighten which form tension around the brain and spinal cord. A light touch is then used to release those tensions in the tissues helping the body to correct itself and repair.

What conditions are treated by this?

  • Concussions
  • Migraines and Headaches
  • Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Scoliosis
  • Autism
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Motor-Coordination Impairments
