Craniosacral therapy involves the manipulation of the skull bones (the cranium) and the sacrum (a bone between the lumbar vertebrae and tail vertebrae) to relieve pain and a variety of other ailments. Introduced by William G. Sutherland in the 1930s, this therapy emphasizes energy, harmony, balance, rhythm, and flow.
Craniosacral therapists detect a rhythm in the cranium, sacrum, cerebrospinal fluid, and the membranes that envelop the craniosacral system. By restoring the balance and flow of this rhythm, the restrictions of nerve passages are eased, the movement of cerebrospinal fluid through the spinal cord is optimized, and misaligned bones can be restored to their proper position.
Craniosacral therapists use this method to treat mental stress, neck and back pain, migraines, TMJ Syndrome, and for chronic pain conditions such as Fibromyalgia.
Fascia, a continuous covering on every muscle, bone, nerve, artery, and vein, as well as all internal organs, connects each part of the body. Fascia can become restricted by trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures, causing intense pressure and pain.
Myofascial Release is a form of soft tissue therapy that involves applying gentle, sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.
The gentle pressure applied slowly helps relax contracted muscles, increasing circulation and venous and lymphatic drainage, and stimulates the stretch reflex of muscles and overlying fascia.
Originating in China more than 2,000 years ago, Tuina is a bodywork therapy that seeks to establish a more harmonious flow of chi through pathways (meridians) in the body.
Tuina methods include the use of hand techniques to massage the soft tissue (muscles and tendons) of the body, such as rolling, one-finger pushing, and energy generation exercises, as well as acupressure techniques to directly affect the flow of chi, and manipulation techniques to realign the musculoskeletal and ligamentous relationships (bone-setting). External herbal poultices, compresses, liniments, and salves are also often used to enhance the other therapeutic methods.
