Craniosacral Helps Many Disorders

Another article about craniosacral therapy is in the news. It's a treatment I use on 90% of my clients. If I leave it out, it's because I've run out of time.

Craniosacral therapy is an increasingly popular treatment for ailments such as headaches and back pain, post-traumatic stress disorder, autism, dyslexia, depression, sinusitis and visual disturbances. But like other treatments in the growing field of alternative medicine, the therapy has its critics.

Craniosacral therapy focuses on the bone, joints, soft tissue and fluids surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Therapists say that blockages in the flow of this fluid can cause disorders and that light-touch therapy can remove blockages and help the body naturally correct the problems.

While Craniosacral therapy is an offshoot of osteopathy, it has been met with criticism by some in conventional medicine.

Interestingly, John Macy, mentioned in the article, is the physical therapist who helped me overcome whiplash from an automobile accident using Craniosacral therapy in 1991. Thanks John!
