CranioSacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation & Lymphatic Drainage
Craniosacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation & Lymphatic Drainage are manual hands-on bodywork that work with the natural and unique rhythms of the body systems to pinpoint and address problem sources.
Craniosacral Therapy: CranioSacral therapy (CST) is a light-touch, whole-body treatment technique developed by John E. Upledger, DO, OMM; works with the body’s craniosacral system (comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround & protect the brain and spinal cord) to support & nourish the central nervous system —improving overall health & well-being. CranioSacral therapy helps to improve the body’s ability to self-correct & can produce profound, positive changes.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a manual, whole body treatment that facilitates movement of the lymphatic system. Benefits of MLD can include the removal of toxins and bacteria from the skin, relieving sinus pressure and congestion, reducing swelling, optimizing immune system function.
Visceral Manipulation (VM) is a manual therapy technique that focuses on restoring the inherent motion of each organ and synchronize the organs’ motion to optimize the brain-body connection. This manual therapy technique leads to improved body system function and decreased pain.
