Craniosacral Massage Therapy is a hands-on healing technique that is preformed while the client is fully clothed. Craniosacral therapists manipulate the craniosacral system, which includes the soft tissue and bones of the head (cranium), the spine down to its tail end (the sacral area), and the pelvis. They also work with the membranes that surround these bones and the cerebrospinal fluid that bathes the brain and spinal cord. While the pressure is very gentle it can be one of the most relaxing modalities.
