Health Alternatives Physical Therapy

Stephen V. Beckett, PT

Craniosacral Therapy evaluates and treats restrictions in the connective tissues or fascia, using gentle traction, pressures, and body positioning. Fascia is a complex elastic web throughout the body which connects all of the organs and the musculoskeletal system. It retains tensions from trauma or stress and is usually involved when a person experiences chronic pain or physical dysfunction. The body's ability to release stored tension in response to therapy allows a return to normal flexibility and mobility of the fascia and associated structures. This therapy is deeply relaxing and can relieve headache, spinal and nerve problems, and is often used to address temporo-mandibular joint disorders.
