Cranial Sacral to release tension

Cranial Sacral to release tension

Samantha Shaw

Cranial Sacral

What is Cranial Sacral Therapy?

Cranial Sacral therapy is a gentle approach to bodywork that focuses on the bones of the head, spinal column, sacrum, and the underlying structures. The goal of this modality is to release tension in the tissue/fascia that surrounds and protects the brain and spinal cord, thus positively affecting the central nervous system. This technique uses minimal pressure and compressive and decompression techniques, as well as some gentle myofascial unwinding. It is NOT a scalp massage.

Who should receive this modality?

  • Chronic pain, especially in the neck and back

  • Headaches and/or migraines

  • TMJ dysfunction

  • Emotional trauma

  • Auditory problems

  • Stress

  • Trauma recovery (like whiplash)

  • Inner ear problems

  • Insomnia

Who should not receive this modality?

  • Acute intracranial Hemorrhage

  • Intracranial aneurysms

  • Recent skull fracture (within the last 6 weeks)

  • Recent stroke(s)

  • Severe grand mal seizures

* Cranial Sacral Therapy can be incorporated into a traditional massage or can be the only modality used

*If you want to experience a full cranial sacral massage you can stay fully clothed, so comfortable clothes are recommended.

*Best fit in 1 hour if only modality used

* Majority of the session is performed at head and neck.
