    What is CranioSacral Therapy?

    Craniosacral therapy is a light-touch massage that helps relieve pressure within tissues surrounding the spinal column. Your licensed therapist will help guide fluids back to the heart, alleviating stress on the central nervous system. Therefore, getting CranioSacral Therapy in Simsbury is ideal for regulating pain, mood, and immune support.

    How Does CranioSacral Therapy in Simsbury Work?

    Our offices have been providing CranioSacral Therapy in Hartford County for almost three decades. The team at Simsbury Therapeutic Massage & Wellness is well-versed in the best practices for a relaxing experience.

    First, your licensed therapist will assess the current infrastructure of your central nervous system. Through light touch, the therapist will monitor the rhythmic flow of fluids around the spine.

    That’s why many people get CranioSacral Therapy prior to a lymph drainage treatment in Hartford County. 

    The first area to be monitored will be your head. Hence, the whole “cranio” part of this therapy. Their initial assessment will conclude at your sacrum.  You don’t need to be a licensed therapist to figure out that’s the “sacrial” part of this treatment.

    As your therapist works their way down the spine, they will pinpoint locations that have weak fluid flow and tissue motion.

    By figuring out these problem areas, your licensed therapist can create a wellness plan unique to your body’s needs.

    This on-the-spot customization is precisely why Hartford County gets their CranioSacral Therapy in Simsbury at STM Wellness.

    What Are CranioSacral Therapy Techniques?

    Many fundamental techniques unique to this practice are used when you opt for CranioSacral Therapy in Simsbury. These massage techniques are intended to improve fluid circulation, relieve tension, and provide an overall relaxing experience.

    CranioSacral Stillpoint Release

    First, your licensed therapist will find your stillpoint. The stillpoint disrupts regular central nervous system activity. Instead, stillpoint promotes calmness throughout the system. That way, your licensed therapist can go in and hit the reset button.

    With a touch lighter than a Thai massage, your licensed therapist will release your stillpoint by activating a spot on the back of your head. This location is directly on the opposite side of your eyes.

    In addition, your therapist will release stillpoints in:

    • Hands
    • Head
    • Sacrum
    • Feet

    Now that your licensed therapist has the lay of the land and promoted relaxation throughout the central nervous system, they are ready to get to work!

    CranialSacral Release

    Using slight pressure, your licensed therapist will help release tension in common problem areas. Pushing down with their fingertips, your licensed therapist will manipulate fascia and tissues. By doing this, they will cause the tightness within the area to release. As a result, stagnant liquids and tissues causing pressure to your central nervous system lighten up.

    CranialSacral release points include:

    • Pelvic Diaphragm
    • Respiratory Diaphragm
    • Thoracic Inlet 
    • Hyoid
    • Occipital

    These movements will start to loosen up parts of the body that are prone to tension. Implementing these techniques are great for people dealing with unique issues such as lockjaw, pelvic pains, and pulmonary disease. That’s why people in need of specialized and targeted care opt for CranioSacral Therapy in Hartford County at Simsbury Therapeutic Massage & Wellness.

    Sacral Massage

    After treating the body as a whole, your licensed therapist will become more localized. They will spend a good portion of your therapy session, manipulating your sacrum. First, they will move this sensitive up and down toward the pelvis. This movement will help get your sacrum back to its natural alignment.

    From there, your therapist can work on iliac fascia near the base of the spine. By contracting them toward each other, it forces fluids and tense muscles to loosen. This action is why many who come for a sports and athletic massage in Simsbury, follow up with a CranioSacral treatment.

    Next, your therapist can help guide the fluids away from the central nervous system. Thay way, they can either pump back to the heart or be eliminated with waste.

    Dural Tube Rock and Glide

    One of the primary reasons to get CranioSacral Therapy in Hartford County is to clear out your dural tube. This tiny pathway runs from the brain to your pelvis. It’s full of cerebral fluid that may cause clogs that leave us lethargic, anxious, and achy. 

    Clearing this area gives your brain a natural boost. Benefits like this make getting CranioSacral Therapy ideal for students. That’s why many who come for a teen massage in Simsbury also opt for this natural form of therapy.

    Frontal and Parietal Lift

    The frontal lift is ideal for relieving tension directly in the forehead. Your licensed therapist will manipulate tissue pressing directly on the bone. By achieving this release, you may experience fewer headaches and less tension in the eyes. 

    Next, they will manipulate both hemispheres of your head inward. With this light, rejuvenating massage, your therapist will relieve pressures on the bones in the area. Parietal lifts affect the temporal-parietal structure. Therefore, providing this area with relief may help improve your mood.

    Sphenoid Compression and Decompression

    The sphenoid bone is quite an influential part of our central nervous system. This structure influences twelve other bones in our body. Plus, it has a direct correlation to the pituitary gland.

    Our pituitary gland is essential to the endocrine system. Therefore, getting CranioSacral Therapy can help bring balance to your hormones. That’s why many who opt for an elderly massage or pregnancy massage alternate with CranioSacral Therapy in Hartford County.


    As your CranioSacral Therapy in Simsbury comes to an end, your licensed therapist will evaluate and re-evaluate your system. That way, they can ensure you got the most of your CranionSacral Therapy session.

    Your licensed therapist will check to see if your fluids are flowing in the right direction. They will assess prior weak areas and see how they’ve improved. Lastly, your therapist will check for any oversights that need to be addressed.

    The evaluation process of CranioSacral Therapy in Simsbury includes:

    • Circumferential Motion
    • Medial-Lateral Motion
    • Occipito-Mastoid Release
    • Ear Pulling

    After the evaluation portion of the CranioSacral Therapy, your therapist will begin to wrap up your session.

    TMJ Compression and Decompression

    So many of us hold tension in our jaws. These pressures can hinder our speech, energy flow, and thought processes. Not to mention, a tightly-wound jaw can lead to nasty headaches. The last part of your CranioSacral Therapy in Simsbury will see your licensed therapist alleviate pressure around the jaw. That way, you will walk out with a smile on your face, ready to take on the world!
