What is CranioSacral Therapy?

The craniosacral system (CSS) has a slow, gentle rhythm that resonates throughout the entire body. Unique from other systems of the body, the CSS actually slows down and enters into a sense of timelessness, which practitioners refer to as stillpoint. Regular CranioSacral Therapy can help maintain health, and well being and encourage the body’s own innate ability to heal.

CranioSacral Therapy assists the pregnant woman by releasing restrictions in the body and pelvis to co-create an optimal birthing experience. CranioSacral Therapy is also a wonderful and gentle bodywork modality for infants, babies and children.
