There is a movement in the body called the cranio sacral rhythm completely separate from the breath and heart rate. With light pressure, this rhythm is found anywhere in the body. In CranioSacral Therapy, the therapist is specifically looking for a lack of this rhythm. By treating those areas, we are treating the source of the problem, rather than the symptoms. The therapist's hands "meld" with the client to:
create deep relaxation
manage chronic pain
relieve headaches and migraines
treat the fascial system
regain a healthy cranio sacral rhythm

Fascia is the connective tissue that is present throughout the body: a superficial layer just below the skin, and a deep layer that flows down throughout the muscles, and surrounds and protects all of the internal organs. This type of massage relaxes and lengthens this tissue to regain flexibility and treat chronic pain. Sustained pressure is applied to help soothe symptoms of:
ilio-tibial band friction syndrome

Massage cups provide decompression of tight tissues, encourages blood flow, and sedates the nervous system. Rather than applying pressure to the muscles, suction from the cups lifts skin and fascia to allow nutrients to flow upward, revitalizing the system. The cups may be moved around, or left in place depending on your individual treatment.
Works well for back and neck pain, stress relief, fatigue, stiff muscles or fascia, anxiety, and headaches.
