A typical CranioSacral Therapy session takes place in a quiet, private setting.  You remain fully clothed as you relax on a comfortable, padded table.

Your therapist begins by gently touching various parts of your body to monitor the rhythm of the fluid that is flowing around your central nervous system.

By carefully listening with the hands to locate areas of weak fluid flow or tissue motion, your practioner can trace those areas of weakness through the body to the original source of dysfunction.

Delicate manual techniques are then used to release those problem areas and improve the form and function of your central nervous system.

A CranioSacral Therapy session can last up to an hour or more.  It can be used alone or integrated with other therapies to create powerful effects.

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.

Natural and Safe for ALL ages to help many different issues and concerns.



The Four Happiness Neurotransmitters and Your Brain

If your high in Seritonin, you’re positive, confident, flexible, and easy going.

If you’re sinking in Seritonin, you’ll tend to become negative, obsessive, worried irritable, ad sleepless.

If you’re high in Catecholamines (norepinephrin, dopamine, and adrenalin are in this group), you’re energized, upbeat, and alert.

If your Catecholamines have crashed, you can sink into a flat, lethargic funk.

If you’re high in GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), you’re relaxed and stress-free.

If there’s a gap in your GABA, you’ll be wired, stressed, and overwhelmed.

If you’re high in Endorphins, you’re full of cozy feelings of comfort, pleasure, and euphoria.

If you’re near the end of your Endorphins, you may be crying during commercials and overly sensative to hurt.
