CranioSacral Therapy For Headaches

A headache or migraine is a signal from the body that something isn't right. 

Headaches are sometimes caused by serious illnesses such as tumors, aneurysms, meningitis and very high blood pressure. Once these have been ruled out, neck tension, sinusitis, jaw dysfunction, and physical distortions arising from accidents and injuries sustained long ago may be the culprit.

That makes bodywork a prime solution for most headaches, and CranioSacral Therapy in particular. We work directly on the head and its structures, and CranioSacral Therapy allows release of tension patterns at the source.

The craniosacral system is comprised of the brain and spine, which span from the top of the head to the bottom of the spine at the sacrum. These structures of the central nervous system are contained in an impermeable sac and are protected with cerebrospinal fluid as a shock absorber. We track restrictions and flow of the cerebrospinal fluid. A whole body evaluation based on the craniosacral rhythm -- where it's strong and where it is lacking -- can indicate the nature of the problem and the path to recovery.

Because an overall goal and benefit of CranioSacral Therapy is to relax and balance the nervous system, people suffering from headaches typically get relief even as a side benefit if that's not what they're being treated for primarily, through reducing constriction of blood vessels.

In a nutshell, CranioSacral Therapy for headaches is:

  • Drug free
  • Hands-on bodywork with light physical touch.
  • Releases contraction and trauma patterns that cause or contribute to headaches.
  • Works on releasing the source of headaches, not just symptoms.
  • Balances the nervous system, improving overall health at the same time.

About CranioSacral Therapy in General

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a light-touch approach that seeks to locate and remove restrictions throughout the body systems. It can create dramatic improvements in your life. It releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance.

Few body structures have more influence over your health and well-being than your central nervous system. And few body systems have more impact on your central nervous system than the craniosacral system -- the soft tissues and fluid that protect your brain and spinal cord.

Every day you endure stresses and strains and your body absorbs them. But your body can only handle so much tension before the tissues begin to tighten and potentially affect the brain and spinal cord.

Unfortunately, this can compromise the function of the central nervous system -- and the performance of nearly every other system in the body.

CranioSacral Therapy releases those tensions to allow the entire body to relax and self-correct. Using a gentle touch -- starting with about the weight of a nickel -- practitioners evaluate your internal environment. Then they use distinctive light-touch techniques to release any restrictions they find.

By freeing the central nervous system to perform at its best, CranioSacral Therapy naturally eliminates pain and stress, strengthens your resistance to disease, and enhances your health and well-being.

At the office...

In a dedicated CranioSacral session, you remains fully clothed as the practitioner assesses the CranioSacral rhythm across the body, locates restricted body parts and with a light touch releases tissue blocks and re-establishes a normal rhythm.

My intention is to embody a neutral therapeutic presence, to act as a neutral witness to what might unfold, with no attachment to outcome.

What you experience from your own session is highly individual. The sessions are generally deeply relaxing, creating feelings of warmth or gentle pulsing in the areas the therapist is working on.
