CranioSacral Therapy, sometimes referred to as Craniosacral Therapy, is a massage method designed to balance the body's central nervous system. On this blog, the Elements of Rockville Center has a quick breakdown of what it contains.

What is CranioSacral Therapy?

CranioSacral Therapy applies light pressure to the head, neck and back. Its name comes from the focus on the head (skull) and sacrum (the triangular bone at the bottom of the spine). You can visit to find out about the certified craniosacral therapy practitioners in Santa Cruz.

What to Expect

First, your licensed massage therapist can examine your arms, legs, skull, ribs and spine to identify problem areas – as if you were "listening" to your body with your hands. Therapists can concentrate more on one part of their body than on other parts during CranioSacral Therapy.

The 3 main benefits of craniosacral massage

1. Management of chronic disease

Due to better functioning of the central nervous system, craniosacral therapy helps in the treatment of the following chronic diseases:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic neck and back pain
  • Orthopedic problems
  • migraine

Regular CranioSacral massage helps make this condition easier to treat over time.

2. Relaxation and revitalization

CranioSacral therapy is very relaxing. During your session, stress and tension will go away. You will feel very depressed and most likely get a good night's sleep.

3. Better response to stress

When your body's central nervous system is working optimally, it can respond better to stress. This reduces the negative effects stress has on the mind and body.
