Craniosacral Therapy

With Becky Higginson, DC

Becky’s treatments combine craniosacral therapy with myofascial release, which both involve GENTLE, sustained pressure to release areas of tension and restriction.

Clients often report a sense of DEEP RELAXATION during and after treatment.

What to Expect:

A typical session will begin with you lying fully clothed on a massage table. Therapeutic contact occurs simultaneously with the assessment.

With the guidance of your practitioner’s gentle touch, your body will release areas of restriction. As connective tissues and membranes release, they soften and become pliable, which allows for increased blood flow to cells and tissues.

When the body is functioning better, we FEEL better.


This therapy can be extremely helpful for…

  • Emotional stress

  • Past trauma

  • Headaches

  • Pain

  • Anxiety / Depression


The craniosacral system consists of the membranes and fluids that surround and “cushion” the brain and spinal cord. The fluid is in constant motion, providing protection and nutrition to the nervous system. This gentle fluid movement produces the craniosacral rhythm. The craniosacral rhythm is similar to other rhythms felt in the body, such as the heartbeat or pulse, but it is much more subtle.

Craniosacral therapists are trained to feel this rhythm and to assess the movement of the CSF, which can be restricted by tension or previous trauma.

By working very gently with the skull, spine and fascia, restrictions can be removed so that the body can function at 100%
