About CranioSacral Therapy
There is a rhythm in the body called the Cranial Rhythm. It is separate and distinct from the breathing rate and the heart rate. By putting my hands on gently I can feel for this rhythm anywhere in the body. In particular, I am looking for a lack of this rhythm and by treating these areas we are treating the sources of these problems rather than the symptoms.

CranioSacral Therapy can benefit individuals throughout life.
Research strongly suggests that the birth process is responsible for many brain dysfunctions and central nervous system problems. Therapy carried out in the delivery room or within the first few days of life could potentially reduce a wide variety of difficulties, many of which might not become apparent until your child is in school. Even problems with head shape and skull-bone override can be corrected with the skillful use of CranioSacral Therapy. The childbirth experience of both the mother and baby can be improved with CranioSacral Therapy during pregnancy.
