History of Craniosacral Therapy:

In the late 1800s, Dr. Andrew Taylor Still discovered that many illnesses could be treated through careful manipulation of the musculoskeletal system – without the need for dangerous surgery or drugs. This was a major step forward in medical science and lead to the development of Manual Osteopathy. More than a century later – in the mid-1970s – Dr. John Upledger took it one step further and developed Craniosacral Therapy (CST).

Dr. John Upledger derived his ideas from William G. Sutherland. Sutherland began teaching a course at the American School of Osteopathy in the 1940s regarding Osteopathy in the Sacral Field. The course’s popularity and teaching grew. Upledger, a doctor of Osteopathy, later developed the protocol and steps used in CST today.

What to Expect:

If you are experiencing neck pain, back pain, migraines, headaches, depression, or other spinal complaints, Craniosacral Therapy Massage may be the right service for you.

Appointment times range from 45 minutes to 2 hours. Your treatment will begin with a short but thorough one-on-one assessment. This is your opportunity to point out what areas you’d like to work on during your time, as well as identify any special requests or concerns you may have.

Craniosacral Therapy is a very gentle treatment. Your therapist will lightly manipulate the bones of your head, spinal column, and sacrum with about the pressure of the weight of a pencil. Using this minimum pressure, your therapist will be able to restore the bones’ natural positions, restoring balance and therefore reducing stress and pain throughout the body. Your individual treatment plan will be determined by what you present both verbally and what is ascertained from palpating your soft tissues. Your therapist is trained to identify the source of your issue and treat as needed.
