A session with this gentle technique involves the practitioner’s hands being placed on the body to help release restrictions in the connective tissue that surround the brain and the spinal cord. The effects include:
- The restrictions of the nerve passages are eased.
- The movement of the cerebrospinal fluid through the spinal cord is optimized.
- The skeletal system is realigned to its proper position.
The Central Nervous System is responsible for the functioning of the entire body therefore restrictions can cause pain and/or disease in any part of the body and any system. This light-touch therapy reduces the effects of stress and strengthens resistance to disease including but not limited to: stress, neck/back pain, headaches/migraines, TMJ, and fibromyalgia.
This is a great technique for sensitive patients who prefer to avoid acupuncture needles and still want to receive the relaxing effect of a treatment that calms and moves stagnant energy through the body.
“Acu-cranio” is a unique healing art which blends the ancient practice of Acupuncture with Craniosacral Therapy. In essence, it is hands-on healing combined with needles. The intention is to deepen the experience of having an acupuncture treatment by engaging the entire body and nervous system through touch. Each session is customized to the individual and their needs in the moment.
A treatment begins with acupuncture to soften the muscles, relax the nervous system and unwind any kinks that are creating discomfort in the body. This is followed by 20-30 minutes of craniosacral therapy which can then, more specifically, address any physical, psychological or emotional imbalances.
A customized acupuncture session with craniosacral therapy can gently ease restricted nerve pathways and optimize the flow or movement of the fluid in the spinal column, deepening your experience of acupuncture in a very effective manner.
