Chinese Craniosacral Therapy is a safe, indirect approach tothe body’s physical and psychological imbalances. Practitioners trained in CCT use a subtleblend of Chinese Acupressure Meridian Therapy and psychophysiologicalCraniosacral Therapy. In ChineseCraniosacral Therapy, the goal is a self-regulated and self-regulating systemof energy wherein the body is guided by the Therapist and taught to harness itsown bio-electric immune system or “Inner Intelligence”. By working on the mind and sympathetic andparasympathetic nervous systems first, inflammation and blockages are reduced,laying the groundwork for further bodywork and serving as an adjunct to otherEnergy/Vibrational medicine, whatever the modality.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) the body is aholograph! And so it is with ChineseCraniosacral Therapy. Problems on theleft or right side of the body, are first treated contralaterally (on theopposite side), as are issues on the top or bottom of the body. CCT is performed based upon the ChineseAcupuncture Meridian System, the location of important Gate Acupressure Pointsand corresponding channels of energy, and are accessed by the application ofAcupressure, rather than with Acupuncture needles.
Chinese Craniosacral Therapy practitioners use palpatoryskills for evaluation and employ gentle therapeutic stretching of the fascia,identify congestion and “sick“ energy that affects the organs and fascia, treatimbalances, and often release the toxicity of viscera through VisceralManipulation of the internal organs (if opted for by the client).
Some of the conditions which have been successfullyaddressed by Chinese Craniosacral Therapy include Chronic Fatigue Syndrome,Fibromyalgia, inflammatory viral conditions, migraines, tension headaches,emotional imbalances (such as anger, frustration, resentment, anxiety, andnervousness), chronic back pain, cervical (neck) pain, Post-traumatic StressDisorders (PTSD), depression, gastrointestinal problems, sinusitis,ADHD/hyperactivity, Autism, and all forms of Arthritis.
