What is Cranialsacral Therapy

Craniosacral therapy is a holistic healing practice that uses very light touching to balance the craniosacral system in the body, which includes the bones, nerves, fluids, and connective tissues of the cranium and spinal area.

Craniosacral Therapy with Kelly

It is essentially the interaction between the giver and receiver of care. Craniosacral therapy approach is a focused, intended and concentrated hands-on light touch along specific point’s on the patient’s body, including the spinal column, neck, and head.

The intention of the hands-on approach is to facilitate the release of physiological / energetic blockages or stuck (negative, disruptive) energies your body is holding on to. These stuck or trapped energies are due to unprocessed, unresolved emotions, traumas and experiences from your life that are now creating symptoms and health conditions in your physical body.

The focus of care is to facilitate your body to release these energies, which are interfering with life processes and not serving your highest purpose. This will allow the body to restore itself / heal to its maximum potential and expression of optimal health.

So the traumas, negative emotions and unpleasant experiences are catching up to you. Pain, spasm, fatigue, head pain, any symptom felt by you is a direct link from inside your body of negative, unpleasant, difficult, unexpected emotions you have experienced in your life that the body has not forgotten. Energy of these emotions are stuck in your body.

The therapeutic / healing bodywork from the practitioner to the patient facilitates your emotional / energetic release. Then the body recognizes a less disturbed energetic system and makes a correction. Once enough corrections are achieved, your particular symptom, issue or condition improves.

  1. Natural fit: When it comes to treatment options, craniosacral therapy can be a natural fit for alleviating TMJ symptoms

  2. Noninvasive: No need to worry about an implant breaking, craniosacral therapy is noninvasive. It also works by relying on soft touches that palpate facial muscles and bones to release tensions and stimulate proper function by manipulating the body’s circulation of cerebrospinal fluid

  3. Realignment: TMJ is primarily a dysfunction of misalignments and tensions in the jaw making craniosacral therapy an excellent choice of treatment

  4. Gentle: Because craniosacral therapy is gentle, it can be beneficial for TMJ sufferers since pain is often experienced in the areas where craniosacral therapy is performed

Emotional stress, tension in the neck or jaw, frowning and clenching the teeth or forehead can all contribute to headaches and or migraines, as well as pain in the face, neck and shoulders. Craniosacral massage can help to reduce pressure surrounding the head and also decrease migraines or headaches tied to high stress levels.

While there are many therapies that help to alleviate neck pain and stiffness, craniosacral therapy can promise to resolve neck pain issues more effectively because they help the body to release the tension and restriction in the fascia (connective tissue) that weaves through, and envelops, all the cells, tissues, organs, muscles, and other structures, such as blood and lymph vessels, nerves, and meridians (energy pathways of the body).

Endless effects of Fibromyalgia are pervasive to the point that they interfere with day to day living exercises and activities and can take away the joy of life. After only a couple of CST sessions, a vast majority of patients had better rest, less or no pain, diminished weakness, and sensitivity to light touch. As rest enhances and torment vanishes, individuals recapture their vitality and are excited to move again and return to living their lives.

CST is broadly known as the best treatment for mitigating Fibromyalgia side effects. It works by diminishing fascial (connective tissue) confinements, and adjusting the sensory system all through the body to restore the ideal adaptability, enhance vitality levels, reestablish normal sleeping patterns, and resolve pain. It also calms overactive nerves, clears mind confusion and flu-like systems, and also, diminishes stress, depression and anxiety.


Usually there are only pleasant sensations during the session and often complete relaxation. Processing begins and can often take a few days and up-to a week to complete. This is your body’s response to releasing trapped emotions, negative experiences and physical and emotional trauma your body has been holding on to.
