Cranial Unwinding Therapy has it’s roots in cranial osteopathy; a gentle, intuitive, hands on approach to bodywork. It focuses on the bones of the head, spinal column, sacrum, and the underlying structures. The cranial/sacral system produces a rhythm, similar to the cardiac and circulatory systems. This movement is referred to as the Cranial Rhythm. Once a practitioner determines areas of compression or restrictions, gentle non-intrusive techniques are applied to release those areas.
Cranial Sacral Therapy has shown benefits with:
Chronic pain, particularly in back and neck
Migraine, tension and cluster headaches
Auditory problems, including inner ear
Colic and biliary function
Learning and/or behavioral disorders
