Introduction to Upledger CranioSacral Therapy (Adelaide)
What is CranioSacral Therapy?
CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, non-invasive modality that seeks to find and treat restrictions throughout the body systems.
Restrictions within the CranioSacral system can lead to tension patterns, restrictions or affect the functioning of all bodily systems including the musculoskeletal, endocrine, cardio-respiratory, gastrointestinal, lymphatic, immune and reproductive systems.
How does CranioSacral Therapy work?
Through various assessment tools, your CranioSacral Therapist can globally assess your body and CranioSacral system and find the “primary” restrictions or “root causes” of issues.
Over time our body may compensate around particular restrictions in order to keep us functioning well. When the body can no longer compensate or the restrictions are so great that it overcomes the body’s compensatory strategies, symptoms occur.
