Cranio-Sacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy is a therapeutic method, which aims to restore the functionality of the Nervous System, strengthening the body's natural defense mechanism.

This treatment method became known through the work of Dr. Upledger in the 1970s. The central nervous system (CNS), which consists of the brain and spinal cord, is enclosed inside three protective membranes: the dua matter, the arachnoid membrane and the pia matter, which extend from the brain to the 2nd sacral vertebra.

Specifically, the arachnoid meninges are filled with cerebrospinal fluid. In the cerebellum is located the largest reservoir of cerebrospinal fluid where we can easily listen to its production.

Just as there is a heart rate, which normally ranges between 60 to 80 beats per minute, or a respiratory rate of about 14 to 20 beats per minute, so there is a craniosacral rate of about 6 to 12 cycles per minute.

By detecting the rhythm, evaluating the amplitude and frequency and applying very a gentle pressure of 5 grams or approximately a coin weight at various points, we help the central nervous system to return to its normal function.

  • Chronic stroke
  • Paraparesis - quadraparesis
  • Nerve injuries
  • Intervertebral disc herniation
  • Radiculitis
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Headaches
  • Arthritis
  • Autism
  • Back pain
  • Immune system disorders
  • Insomnia
  • Migraine
  • Sports injuries
  • Disease-related stress
  • Tinnitus and middle ear problems, vision problems.

Craniosacral therapy strengthens the central nervous system, which, in turn, promotes the regulation of health.
