Cranial Techniques

CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the function of the Craniosacral system which includes the membranes and cerebral spinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.  I began using this technique in 1987 and the training it provided regarding the required light touch was essential in preparation for the systems I would later learn.  As with my other approaches, I incorporate the various techniques and knowledge from this system into my treatments.

One of the most profound changes I experienced using just this system alone was with my own children.  Two of my daughters at a young age seemed headed for ear tubes due to chronic ear infections.  Turned off by the ear specialist’s rude approach, I decided to get a second opinion.  Since I was unable to get them in to see the 2nd specialist for 6 weeks, I decided to use CranioSacral therapy in the meantime.  By the time the girls were evaluated, the specialist was calling in all of the medical students to have a peek at what “perfect ears” should look like!  Needless to say, the ear infections dramatically decreased and they never needed tubes.
