CranioSacral Therapy

One session offered by The Heartful Touch involves CranioSacral Therapy. Developed during the last few decades by John Upledger, D.O., this modality relies upon very gently applied hands-on pressure to various parts of the body with the major focus on the head and the lower end of the spine. The gentle pressure assists the client’s body in activating self-correcting mechanisms.

At the very least, CranioSacral Therapy sends the client into a state of deep relaxation; often, my clients fall asleep on my table.

The therapy also helps treat these conditions:

  • Migraines and other headaches
  • Neck and back pain
  • Motor-coordination impairments
  • Stress- and tension-related problems
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Scoliosis
  • Emotional difficulties
  • Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome

CranioSacral Therapy also helps calm some ADD and AHDD children and helps some autistic children become more sociable.

Some of my clients enjoy 45 minutes to an hour of Swedish massage, followed by 45 minutes to an hour of CranioSacral Therapy. Such treatment nourishes the body, spirit, and soul.
