Cranial Sacral

Cranial Sacral

Cranial sacral fluid (also known as CSF or spinal fluid) runs in a steady flow from your cranium to your sacrum. This flow, which can be felt throughout the entire body, should be wavelike and consistent. However, due to different stresses or injuries in life, the flow can sometimes become stuck or interrupted.

Cranial sacral therapy is an energy modality, which uses different holds on the head, sacrum, and even the feet in order to help shift the different cranial plates, balance CSF, and restore its natural flow.

This therapy is a non-invasive and very gentle form of massage located on the bones of your head and spinal column. Cranial sacral therapy also aims to decrease stress and restore the natural position of your bones. This can provide you with relief from back and neck pain, chronic migraine headaches, and temporomandibular joint disorder (also known as TMJ), which is the inflammation of the joints in the jaw.

Cranial Sacral Therapy & Migraines

Around 28 million Americans currently suffer from migraines, according to the National Headache Foundation. Migraines can sometimes strike with no warning, but they’re more often brought on by stress, injury, or lack of sleep. Researchers have discovered that migraine sufferers who receive regular cranial sacral therapy suffer from fewer migraines and get better sleep than those who don’t. In addition to helping with migraines and other painful issues, cranial sacral therapy can also provide relaxation and stress relief.
