Craniosacral Therapy

Posted by Angela on January 13, 2007

Craniosacral Therapy is a bodywork modality that was originally developed by Osteopathic Physician Dr. William Sutherland.  It is an exceptionally gentle yet extremely powerful form of treatment that can be helpful to most people and most conditions – from minor aches and pains to severe and persistent chronic health problems.  Craniosacral Therapy has the potential to tranform patterns of restriction and resistance in our lives at a very fundamental level, thereby reducing, and in many cases even eliminating disease and restoring health.  The level of benefit that you may receive from a Craniosacral Session varies depending on a number of factors from the level of expertise of the practitioner to the level of trust and readiness of the client.

    Hi Angela, I would like to learn more about this therapy and how effective it is for patients with back surgery. My mom, 64, has had two lumbar back surgeries to relieve herniated disks and form bone fusion. SHe has not felt any relief from these surgeries but has more complications. SHe has constant pain in both her legs and also her feet and ankles. Yes, she has arthritis and osteoporosis but she thinks most of her pain has developed because of the strain on her spine. She doesn’t find any relief in conventional physical therapy and medications don’t so much for her, most of it makes her nauseous or with terrible headaches. I have been trying to see what else may be available for her. Cortizone shots don’t do much for her either. Please tell me more about this Craniosacral Therapy and how it could benefit my mom. Thanks

    Miriam,

    You might enjoy browsing through the stories on our website at http://www.transitionalhealing.com

    Sadly, it is far too often that we hear that spinal surgeries too often lead to more not less pain. It sounds like this may be the case for your mother. Craniosacral therapy may be helpful in addressing some of the symptoms that may have been created through the surgery. Myofascial release may also be helpful. Interestingly both of these therapies have the potential to help disapate some of the pain involved with arthritis too.

    Our suggestion would be to look for a therapist in your area that resonates with your mother. You should know within the first session if the therapist and your mother are a good fit and if she finds any relief with the therapy. Realistically it may be a matter of degrees of pain and relief that you can find – however I know and trust that miracles are also real.

    Many blessings, and please let us know how things go with you and your mother,
    *Angela
