Gentle Healing...Craniosacral Therapy
The body and mind are greatly interconnected, what effects one will influence the other. Both mental and physical stresses can be held in the tissues, and these stressors may have a profound effect on health and function. We have a vast innate ability to balance and self-heal, and often just need a gentle "nudge" to open restrictions and release areas of pain, scars, and inflammation to restore overall health and well-being. That's where craniosacral therapy comes in...
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a very “light touch” therapy used to evaluate and enhance the natural rhythm of the Craniosacral System and support overall health. The Craniosacral system is comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord, CST also aids in detoxification of the brain, Because the CS system contains the cerebral spinal fluid, it follows the rules of fluid dynamics…a small force in one area can be transmitted up and down the entire Craniosacral system. This allows a "shot gun" style therapy that can positively influence multiple areas, in distant locations.
The Craniosacral system interconnects with the whole body through neural networks and fascia. Fascia is collagen-like tissue that covers and envelops the body (like a giant sheet with folds and pockets for organs, joints and bones). Abnormal tensions in one area of fascia, can pull and negatively impact other areas. Collagen fibers are the information highway of our own electrical communication system. Restrictions in these tissues can block communication, trigger disease and pain, and keep the body in a perpetual state of “Fight or Flight.” Gently releasing these abnormal tensions can positively influence not just the pain symptoms, but the central nervous system itself! Craniosacral therapy is gentle, yet powerful, allowing the body to release, relax, and re-balance without eliciting a "rebound" or guarding response in the tissues.
Avazzia BEST Neurostimulation Therapy
Microcurrent stimulation beautifully complements Craniosacral Therapy. They are both gentle, non-invasive therapies that work with the body's tissues, fascia, communication system, and structure. The Avazzia microcurrent device stands apart from a traditional “TENS” unit. It uses frequencies and wavelength forms similar to our own electrical communication to relieve pain and inflammation, and help set the body up for optimal healing. Its neuro-stimulation technology has a proprietary high-speed microprocessor which measures the response of the tissue and adjust its next signal accordingly for maximum therapeutic intervention. The Avazzia also stimulates neuropeptides and regulatory peptides which the body uses to help HEAL itself! Many settings are available to address the symptoms of pain, stress and inflammation caused by current or past injuries, scar tissue, or other issues. In the hands of an experienced practitioner, it is an amazingly powerful therapy!
Some Conditions that Benefit from CST and Microcurrent Therapy...
TMJ & Facial Tension and Jaw or Face Pain particularly critical if tongue-tie is present or pre/post frenectomy (tongue-tie release)
Chronic/Acute Pain: migraines, TMJ/D. post-surgical healing, scar tissue
Acute & Chronic Injuries: sprains, strains, bruises
Post Surgical Pain
Symptoms from Concussions and Post Concussion Syndrome (must be evaluated by physician prior to treatment and CST cleared by physician)
Inflammatory and Auto-immune Conditions: Lyme, Arthritis, RA, IBS….
PANDAS/PANS Autoimmune encephalitis triggered by Strep or other microorganisms
Autism & CNS Disorders & Detoxification Blockages
Scoliosis & Functional Balancing
Lyme Symptoms, Chronic Fatigue & Fibromyalgia
PTSD, Emotional and Stress Related Disorders
Post-Surgical Inflammation, Pain Relief, and Scarring
Support Detoxification & Immune Health
