Craniosacral therapy is an effective and gentle form of alternative treatment which can diminish or alleviate stress-related imbalances in the body.
Through craniosacral therapy, entrapped or impinged nerves can be freed, blood flow to the brain may increase resulting in improved concentration and the central nervous system will come to function more efficiently, generally creating a sense of calm and wellbeing after a treatment, and often alleviating pain in the head, neck, shoulders and back.
During a treatment the patient lies on his back on a comfortable treatment table while the gentlest pressure is applied at specific places on the head, neck and sacrum. Treatment is holistic. The patient experiences a deep and pleasant state of relaxation. Tension in the joints and sutures between bones are loosened, membranes relax, nerve function improves, and blood and cerebrospinal fluid circulate more freely.
I combine craniosacral therapy with neuromuscular treatment for shoulder, neck and back problems. I always choose the optimal combination of techniques for the condition of my client.
Most of my clients who have suffered from whiplash symptoms came to me after being referred by their primary care physicians, or directly from insurance companies who knew of the benefits of craniosacral therapy. Recently craniosacral therapy has begun to be used in hospitals in Denmark with excellent results in order to lessen the side effects of chemotherapy.
