How Do Craniosacral Therapists Work?
Craniosacral therapists use gentle and subtle treatment techniques that help correct imbalances in the body. These imbalances can be the result of physical and emotional trauma.
Examples of physical traumas include concussions, fractures, post-surgical trauma and whiplash injuries.
Examples of emotional trauma include childhood emotional and physical abuse, stressful life events and PTSD.
By correcting these imbalances, Craniosacral therapy helps to promote the body's natural healing process via the immune system.
Therapists usually carry out treatments with the client fully-clothed on a massage table.
What Can Expect During Appointments?
The first appointment is usually 75 minutes long. During the visit, our Craniosacral Therapist will take a brief medical history.
Craniosacral therapists do not perform physical exams but combine diagnosis and treatment during the session. By listening to the body through their hands, they allow it to correct imbalances.
Follow up treatments are generally 60 minutes and include the same diagnosis and treatment process as in the initial visit.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments depends on the longevity and nature of the symptoms.
Healing is a process. Symptoms there a long time will require more treatments. For example, PTSD will need more treatments than helping with the effects of short term stress.
Your Craniosacral therapist will give you an estimation of the number of treatments you require.
Can I Pay For Craniosacral Treatments Using My Health Insurance?
Most of our Crainioscaral therapists are Massage therapists and can issue insurance receipts under their Registered Massage therapist licence.
