What is Craniosacral Therapy and Who Should Try It?

Craniosacral therapy is a wonderful but very powerful form of work of the body, where, with light touch, the restriction, tension and pain in our physical and emotional bodies are localized and relieved.

Some people compare it to Reiki or energy work when they experience it, but craniosacral therapists have other goals when it comes to working with the body. If you want to hire the best craniosacral practitioner in Santa Cruz, you can take a look at the site here.

You're looking for something called a craniocerebral rhythm that is very similar to your pulse, but slower and smoother. Skull rhythm is created by the flow of cerebrospinal fluid (the fluid that nourishes, cleanses, and nourishes your spinal cord and brain).

If the therapist finds areas where the rhythm is moving fast or not at all, there may be limitations and the therapist is equipped with tools to solve anything that may be distracting.

Who Should Receive Craniosacral Therapy?

There are many ways to engage your nervous system's healing division, but one of the best ways is to feel safe, warm, and calm (see beach scenario above). How many safe, warm, and quiet moments do you have on any given day? In this case, craniosacral therapy is a good idea.
