Many persons who have looked to traditional massage and chiropractic techniques to solve their chronic pain have found that Craniosacral therapy has been successful in reducing their associated symptoms where traditional medicine has failed.
Specifically, Craniosacral therapy provides a range of benefits for those who have severe head, neck, or back injuries, from car accidents, workplace mishaps, and falls. Because Craniosacral massage utilizes light-touch techniques, it is safe for children and infants, even those experiencing trauma and complications stemming from birth.
In addition to severe injuries, Craniosacral massage also provides numerous advantages for those experiencing anxiety, fatigue, insomnia, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction, and severe migraines. A 2009 study published in the medical journal Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine (eCAM) found that persons with fibromyalgia saw significant improvement in sleep quality, anxiety, quality of life and pain reduction after 25 weeks of Craniosacral therapy. Because of its ability to reduce blockages in the flow of CSF which lead to the buildup of disease, Craniosacral massage is extremely effective in reducing the effects of stress that occur in the nervous system. Craniosacral therapy has also been seen to help those suffering from sensory disorders such as dyslexia, autism, tinnitus, vertigo, and loss of taste or smell.
