Cranial Sacral Therapy
WHAT IS CRANIAL SACRAL THERAPY?
Headache and Migraine treatment / Cranial Sacral Therapy / Clarity Centers / Towson, MD 21204Craniosacral Therapy is a powerful alternative in cases where other therapies have not provided relief. In addition, craniosacral therapy promotes relaxation and immune system function, thereby enhancing healing throughout your body.
How It Works
The craniosacral system consists of the brain, spinal cord, membranes and the fluid within it. This fluid has a pulse or rhythm not unlike the pulse of the circulatory or respiratory systems.
After the body experiences a trauma such as a fall or accident or has been in a cycle of repeated stress, the rhythm within the craniosacral system can be disrupted. Sometimes a restriction can occur in the natural flow of this fluid.
These disruptions occur in the central nervous system, so a variety of different symptoms can occur. Symptoms can include headaches, chronic pain, fogginess and many other neurological complaints.
Cranial Sacral Therapy involves a very light touch and gentle manipulation of areas on the head and throughout the body including the spine. A trained practitioner, or CST, can detect where the natural flow is restricted and facilitate a release where flow is then restored. The natural healing ability of the body is the key to the effectiveness of this therapy.
This type of therapy is gaining popularity due to its gentle and non-invasive treatment of a variety of symptoms. In addition, Craniosacral Therapy works well in conjunction with other therapeutic techniques to promote balance and recovery for a variety of symptoms.

What a Craniosacral Therapy Session Is Like?
In a typical session the patient lies on a padded table on their back, fully clothed and usually covered with a blanket. Light touch no heavier than the weight of a nickel is used to detect the rhythm of the craniosacral system and gentle techniques are used on the head, spine and throughout the body to release restrictions.
