Why Craniosacral?

Craniosacral therapy restores and maintains biomechanical and postural balance, and releases restrictions in the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Craniosacral is a powerful equine and canine bodywork method.


Craniosacral Therapy aids in:

  • freeing restrictions and re-establishing balance in motion in the bones of the skull, vertebral column, and pelvis
  • re-aligning the skeletal structure
  • improving area(s) of injury or trauma
  • releasing emotional patterns and reducing stress
  • improving behavioral problems
  • improving headshaking, weaving, cribbing, and tail wringing
  • addressing specific areas of the body, such as: unblocking tear ducts, and releasing the TMJ
  • removing toxicity from the body


Craniosacral Therapy was developed by Dr. William Sutherland, an Osteopath, well over 100 years ago and has since been applied to other animals including horses and dogs with great success.  CST practitioners work with the “third pulse” of the body, similar to the heartbeat and respiration, which is the flow/pulse of the cerebrospinal fluid from the cranium to the sacrum.  CST addresses restrictions in this pulse, which result in imbalances in the overall system, including the musculoskeletal, nervous system, and visceral organs.
