What Is Craniosacral Massage?
As the name suggests, craniosacral massage treats the spinal column all the way from the skull, or cranium, to the sacrum at the base of the spine. It’s a gentle process, and it’s non-invasive, working only with the therapist’s hands on the body’s surface. In particular, it’s concerned about the craniosacral system, which is made up of membranes and cerebrospinal fluid. The massage promotes the circulation of that fluid and protects the entire central nervous system. If the bumps, bruises, and stress of daily life have led to compression in the spine, the bones may not be aligned the way they should. This massage can restore them to their proper position and reduce dysfunction, pain and stress. Craniosacral massage can be used alone or in conjunction with other massage and therapy.
What Are the Benefits of Craniosacral Massage?
It’s especially useful in treating migraines, which often lead to stress and to lack of restful sleep. Craniosacral massage can relieve neck and back pain. If you have tightness in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), where the jaw meets the skull, you might be a candidate for this treatment. In fact, any aches and pains that result from poor posture or spinal misalignment might call for this massage. There have been reports of relief in serious conditions such as fibromyalgia.
A lot of people don’t realize how much tightness they’ve been carrying in the head and neck until they experience stress melting away during a session. If you’re one of the tens of millions of Americans who suffer from migraines, know that your fellow sufferers have reported fewer headaches and better sleep even weeks after treatment. Reduced headaches, lowered stress and adequate sleep lead to happier, more active lives and even enhanced relationships.
