Advantages of Cranio-sacral Therapy

Cranio-sacral therapy has a very wide application, it also has some very specific advantages as a therapy:

  • It is safe and suitable for people of all ages, from newborn babies to the elderly.
  • It has very few contraindications, the main ones being recent stroke or brain haemorrhage and brain aneurysm.
  • It can be used to treat acutely painful and delicate conditions, especially when physical movement is difficult, or impossible.
  • It is often appropriate when other therapies may be unsafe, such as during pregnancy, after accidents or operations and where osteoporosis is present.
  • It often works well when traditional osteopathy, or chiropractic, have failed to get a result, or have made a condition worse.
  • It promotes healing at a profound level, often resolving the cause(s) of a condition.
  • Finally, conditions which are specifically cranio-sacral in nature and which are therefore unable to be dealt with be any other therapy, can be addressed, eg. Compression of the head and body during birth, fasciae restrictions, spinal disc compression and the subtle effects of head, spine and joint injuries.
