What Can It Treat?
I think it’s very important to consider that when one aspect of the system which is functioning at less than it’s full potential, the entire system is, though possibly functioning, is operating at less than it could be. Therefore to rebalance even one thing is to move toward and possibly find equilibrium for the whole.
Keeping in mind there is no magical cure, craniosacral therapy is a gentle and effective treatment which can help balance various systems of the body. In addition to tangible problems such as:
- TMJ dysfunction
- back pain
- gait problems
Craniosacral therapy can also positively affect things such as;
- foggy thinking
- improving of general well being.
“Craniosacral work is no panacea. There are some people with some conditions for whom it offers no help at all. But there are many conditions, particularly birth defects, muscle contraction headache, migraine, cluster headache, neck arthritis, low back pain, scoliosis, personality disturbance, dyslexia, whiplash, Bells Palsy, vertigo and temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD) where, in the right environment, it can be highly effective. Other conditions, such as autism and tinnitus meet with varying degrees of success. Craniosacral work can also be highly effective in helping the return of mental clarity and abundant energy after a life-crisis, and sometimes helps alleviate chronic depression. It is also sought out by those who are perfectly healthy, as a meditative and calming experience. Some people find craniosacral touch a deeply spiritual experience. And a few find it creates a fertile ground for the kind of transformative insight that paves the way for important change. “(the Milne Institute, Inc)
