Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral therapy is a type of alternative therapy that focuses on manipulating the bones of the skull, spine, and pelvis to promote healing and relieve pain. It is based on the belief that the cerebrospinal fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord has its own rhythm, which can become disrupted due to physical or emotional trauma. By gently applying pressure to specific points on the head, neck, and spine, a trained therapist aims to restore balance and flow to this rhythm.


Our massage therapists at Baker Family Chiropractic are skilled and trained in this unique and effective treatment for regaining balance in your nervous system.

What to expect in a session

A typical session of craniosacral therapy lasts between 45 and 60 minutes. During this time, the practitioner will use light touch to feel for any restrictions or abnormalities in the craniosacral system. They will then use gentle pressure and manipulation to release any tension or blockages that they find. The session is usually very relaxing and can help to promote a sense of well-being and balance throughout the body.

There are a number of potential benefits to craniosacral therapy. Some people find that it helps to alleviate pain and tension, while others use it as a way to manage stress and anxiety. Additionally, the therapy may be helpful in treating a variety of health conditions, including headaches, migraines, and chronic pain.
