Craniosacral therapy involves gentle, precise touch intended to release tension and restore circulation and function. Craniosacral tends to address the body as a whole rather than the sum of its parts.
Gentle techniques focus on the head, neck, low-back and joints, as well as on the emotional heart. The nervous system responds very well to craniosacral touch.
Since its inception in the 1930s, craniosacral has helped thousands worldwide to restore their health.
