Is Cranio-Sacral Therapy for me?

Cranio-Sacral therapy was developed by Dr. John Upledger. He was an Osteopathic Physician and did extensive research from 1975-1983 at Michigan State University where he served as a Professor of Biomechanics.


Cranio-Sacral therapy is a gentle, hands-on method to evaluate the cranio-sacral system. Cranio-Sacral Therapy addresses many conditions including migraines, headaches, neck and back pain, stress and tension-related issues such as PTDS, depression and anxiety. As you might already know the brain and the spinal cord make up the Central Nervous System. The fluid and membranes that surround and protect this system make up the Cranio-Sacral System. When we are born, there is an ebb and flow to the cerebrospinal fluid that flows through the spinal cord from the tailbone up to the brain and then recycles. As we get older and experience life and/or trauma, that “flow” loses rhythm. Tension and stress tighten the tissue and the flow can become erratic and out of sync. Cranio-Sacral Therapy can release tension so that the body can self-correct.
