Craniosacral Therapy-an alternate therapy used by Massage Therapists

Two of our Massage Therapists at Vito Mazza’s recently took a class on Craniosacral Therapy. THis is an exciting therapy with plenty of benefits.Craniosacral therapy is an alternative therapy used by massage therapists. A craniosacral therapy session involves the therapist placing their hands on the patient, which allows them to tune into what they call the craniosacral rhythm. The practitioner claims to gently work with the spine, cranial sutures, and fascia. In this way, the restrictions of nerve passages are said to be eased, the movement of cerebrospinal fluid through the spinal cord is said to be optimized, and misaligned bones are believed to be restored to their proper position. Craniosacral therapists use the therapy to treat mental stress, neck and back pain, migraines, TMJ syndrome, and for chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia. Along with traditional Massage Therapy, craniosacral therapy helps relax the body better to allow for a more productive session.  Definition of Craniosacral therapy was taken from Wikipedia
