Frequently Asked Questions


How is Craniosacral therapy different from Massage therapy?

While many practitioners of Craniosacral therapy are also originally trained as Massage Therapists (R.M.T.), the focus of traditional massage therapy is on stretching and increasing range of motion of muscles through a variety of manipulations that increase circulation of blood. 

The focus of Craniosacral therapy and osteopathic manual therapy is on the gentle stretching of fascia, or connective tissues, and on increasing circulation of the cerebrospinal fluid of the central nervous system through a light touch on mobile cranial bones, spinal and pelvic joints.
