“Craniosacral is the Rolls Royce of bodywork.”

John Beaulieu, N.D., Ph.D., RPP

ShoulderCraniosacral Unwinding is a gentle, hands-on healing technique that releases tensions deep in the central nervous system so that every other system in the body can relax and self-correct.

It helps you naturally free yourself from pain, stress and discomfort.

The practitioner “tunes-in” to the craniosacral rhythm which arises out of the fluid system of the body. Following this internal rhythm leads to places of restriction in the body’s connective tissue.

Using a light touch and dialogue, these places of restriction, pain or injury, are then released by gently unwinding the connective tissue.

Sessions are done fully clothed so you are able to move comfortably as your body starts to unwind. This work is not like traditional massage therapy.

You may feel a sensation of floating and letting go. After a session, clients often feel deeply relaxed, like they have had a deep sleep even though they were awake during the treatment.

“Why should it surprise us that we can tap into the body’s own inner wisdom to facilitate a positive response through the use of our hands and an innate desire to help? In my mind, this is health as it was meant to be—a natural collaboration between two human beings on a multitude of different levels, all simply allowing the body to do what it was born to do best.”
