Created in 1970, craniosacral massage is a gentle technique that releases compression in the head, spinal column and sacrum. Similar to a joint mobilization massage, a craniosacral massage targets stress and pain issues related to soft tissue and fluid around the bones, specifically the bones in the head, spinal column and sacrum. It is an effective technique for Westminster residents who suffer from daily migraines, fibromyalgia, patients with central nervous disorders and those who have immune disorders as well. It has also been known to treat issues such as chronic fatigue, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and brain and spinal cord injuries.
Although we recommend Craniosacral therapy massages in conjunction with other therapies, like deep tissue and lymphatic drainage massage, it has many benefits as a standalone treatment as well. Although Westminster residents generally enjoy a laid-back lifestyle, population and cost of living increases, as well as long commutes and extended work hours can wreak havoc on mind-body wellness. The body will compensate for the stresses by tightening muscles, joints and soft tissue, causing discomfort and anxiety. Westminster’s Self Endearment specialists know how to relieve the tension around the brain and spinal cord, releasing restrictions and helping you get back to a lifestyle that you actually enjoy.
