Craniosacral therapy was developed in the 1970s by an osteopathic physician named Dr. John Ledger. During a routine neck surgery, he noticed the rhythmic movements of the craniosacral system.
Craniosacral therapy is a wellness chiropractic technique that uses gentle touch and hand movement to massage and examine fluid movement and cell membranes connected to the central nervous system. The body system as a whole is covered by tissues called “fascia”, creating an interconnected network. Craniosacral therapy’s gentle touch therapeutic technique promotes release of these fascia, increased health and wellness, and efficient function for these connective tissues. This therapeutic physical therapy can be effective for all members of the family, from children to the elderly and can best help issues like chronic pain, fibromyalgia, migraine headaches, multiple sclerosis, stroke symptoms, epilepsy, and neurodegenerative diseases.
During a craniosacral therapy session, the practitioner will lightly touch your body (using roughly 5 grams of force, or about as much as a nickel weighs). They’ll feel and move with your body’s natural rhythms in order to realign your cerebrospinal fluid. You’ll most likely feel deeply relaxed (and might even fall asleep!), and may also have a “pins and needles” sensation through your body.
