Craniosacral Therapy Q&A

What is craniosacral therapy?

Craniosacral therapy is a type of massage therapy that examines and gently manipulates the membranes, cerebrospinal fluid, and bones that run from the bottom of your skull (cranial) to the bottom of your lower back (sacrum).

The craniosacral therapist relieves stress and pain from compression by using gentle pressure on the head, neck, and back. It also improves the flow of the cerebrospinal fluid in the central nervous system, removing blockages and restoring balance, giving you an overall sense of well-being.

The craniosacral therapist at Newma understands the effects childbirth has on the soft tissue in mom and baby, causing tension and discomfort. They perform craniosacral therapy to optimize health and well-being.

I just had a baby. How can craniosacral therapy help me?

Craniosacral therapy can help you and your baby by easing tension, relaxing tight muscles, and restoring fluid balance. Before making any treatment recommendations, the team thoroughly evaluates you and your baby to fully understand your health needs, concerns, and goals.

They recommend craniosacral therapy to treat:

  • Headaches
  • Constipation
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Neck pain
  • Difficult pregnancies
  • Birth trauma

For babies, the team at Newma recommends craniosacral therapy to improve soft tissue relaxation, relieve discomfort, and improve infant feeding. 

What does craniosacral therapy feel like? 

Your provider at Newma explains what you and your baby may expect during your craniosacral therapy. The treatment feels a lot like a massage, but you remain clothed during therapy.

The therapist uses gentle pressing techniques to find blocked areas in the body and soft tissue restrictions. Then, they gently reposition you or press on certain parts of the body to restore the flow of the cerebrospinal fluid.

Many people find craniosacral therapy very relaxing.

What should I expect after craniosacral therapy?

Results from craniosacral therapy vary, but most mothers feel a sense of calm after their treatment, and infants are calmer and sleep. Through this hands-on therapy, the team at Newma aims to boost your body’s natural self-regulation and self-healing process.
