Cranial Technique

The Cranial Technique, also known as cranial manipulation or cranial sacral therapy, is a chiropractic method that focuses on the gentle adjustment of the bones in the skull and sacrum. This technique aims to balance the craniosacral system, which encompasses the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord, to enhance overall health and well-being.

How It Works

The Cranial Technique involves the application of light, precise pressure to the cranial bones and the sacrum. The chiropractor uses their hands to detect and correct subtle restrictions in the movement of the cranial sutures (the joints between the bones of the skull) and the sacral region. By restoring proper motion and alignment in these areas, the technique helps to improve the function of the central nervous system, promote fluid balance, and alleviate various health issues.

Key Benefits

- Gentle Approach: The technique uses extremely light touch, making it suitable for patients of all ages, including infants and the elderly.

- Holistic Health Improvement: By addressing the craniosacral system, the technique can enhance overall nervous system function, leading to improvements in various bodily functions and reducing stress.

- Relief from Various Conditions: It is effective for treating conditions such as headaches, migraines, chronic pain, stress-related disorders, and certain neurological issues.

What to Expect

During a Cranial Technique session, the chiropractor will first conduct a detailed assessment to understand the patient's health concerns and identify areas of restriction in the craniosacral system. The patient will typically lie on a treatment table while the chiropractor uses gentle hand movements to palpate and adjust the cranial bones and sacrum. The pressure applied is often so light that it may feel like a gentle massage. Patients usually experience deep relaxation during the session and often report relief from symptoms and improved overall well-being afterward.

Ideal for

The Cranial Technique is ideal for patients looking for a gentle and non-invasive approach to chiropractic care. It is particularly beneficial for individuals suffering from headaches, migraines, TMJ disorders, chronic pain, stress, and other conditions related to the central nervous system. It is also suitable for infants, children, and those with delicate health conditions who may not tolerate more forceful chiropractic adjustments.
