CranioSacral Therapy, an offshoot of Cranial Osteopathic Medicine, is a system of natural healing first put forth by Dr. Andrew T. Still in 1874.

Disturbances or restrictions to these subtle motions can adversely impact the body, with a wide variety of symptoms arising, including neurologic, sensory/motor, orthopedic, organ, musculoskeletal, cognitive, and behavioral.
In CranioSacral Therapy, these subtle motions and processes can be perceived through palpation and monitoring of core rhythms in the body, and worked with therapeutically, to support the body's dynamic healing processes, thereby facilitating health & healing through more optimal functioning and communication throughout your body.
