“Cranial Unwinding,” also known as “Craniosacral Therapy,” is based on the research of osteopathic physician John Upledger, founder of the Upledger Institute. The craniosacral rhythms are at the core of the body’s pulse, and learning to palpate and balance them is like discovering the ebb and flow of the ocean. With gentle manipulations of the skull and spine, restrictions of nerve passages can be eased or released. Cerebrospinal fluid can once again move freely, restoring balance and promoting healing throughout the body.
Cranial unwinding honors the body’s own innate healing ability. Subtle, palpatory skills are used to get into harmony, resonance and rapport with the client, while maintaining healthy boundaries. The idea is to develop a relationship that is completely non-invasive and client centered. This grounded, therapeutic modality is perfect for the individual who seeks to connect and harmonize the fluid nature of the body on both the physical and emotional levels.
Cranial Unwinding has been shown to:
- Promote relaxation and ease tension
- Ease or eliminate chronic pain
- Release energy blocks
- Open energy pathways in the body
- Restore balance
- Promote revitalization
- Encourage transformational healing
- And so much more…
