Types of Therapy
Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on form of body therapy that uses light touch to evaluate the craniosacral system – the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds and protects the brain and spinal cord. Using a soft touch, usually no heavier than the weight of a nickel, Dr. Tracy can release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system, allowing the body to heal itself.
Restrictions in the craniosacral system are caused by head trauma, blunt trauma of other types of injuries, car accidents, viral or bacterial infections, excessive immune responses (allergies or autoimmune diseases), stress, and prolonged sitting (driving or working at a desk).
The craniosacral system has its own unique rhythm. Just like the heartbeat (which beats at 70-80 beats per minute) or the respiratory system (we 14-18 breathes per minute), the craniosacral system has a rhythm of 6 – 12 cycles per minute. When restrictions disrupt the cransiosacral rhythm there is increased pain, limited movement and disturbances in organ function and metabolism.
By complementing the body’s natural healing processes, Craniosacral Therapy is used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease and is effective for a wide range of medical problems.
Reiki is a spiritual healing art that uses spiritually guided life force energy. Everyone has the ability to connect with their own healing energy and use it to strengthen energy in themselves and help others. A person’s “ki” or energy should be strong and free flowing. When this is true a person’s body and mind is in a positive state of health. When the energy becomes weak or blocked it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance. A Reiki session can help ease tension and stress and can help support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels – physical, mental, and emotional. A session is pleasant and relaxing and is often utilized for one’s personal wellness.

What to Expect During a Craniosacral Therapy Session
During your Craniosacral Therapy session you will remain fully clothed lying on your back. Dr. Tracy works hands-on with your body and your nervous system to help re-establish balance and optimum function, helping to relax any tension from head to toe and releasing restrictions that are currently in the way of your healing process. The result is a relaxed body and mind that are able to function more efficiently and effectively.
As Dr. Tracy works to rebalance your craniosacral system you may feel tingling, pulsing, cold or a warming sensation in different parts of the body and a sense of deep relaxation. Because a goal of CranioSacral Therapy is to release restrictions within the cranial system, you may notice some drainage in the form of mild post nasal drip in the hours after your treatment. This drainage is beneficial to detoxification and healing and will be short-lived.

For what conditions is Craniosacral Therapy helpful?

Do all Naturopathic Doctors practice Craniosacral Therapy?
Not all Naturopathic Doctors practice Craniosacral Therapy but it is a therapy that many NDs use in conjunction with other naturopathic therapies. Dr. Tracy has had training in Craniosacral Therapy from the Upledger Institute, Bastyr Center for Natural Health and the Craniosacral Alliance.
