Craino Sacral Therapy

Cranio Sacral Therapy was developed by Osteopathic Physician and Surgeon Dr. John Upledger. Due to his research and clinical work and the Cranio Sacral rhythm, he developed the Cranio Sacral Therapy system.  It is a subtle and profound form of healing that is deeply relaxing  and encourages the body’s natural healing processes. This increases physical vitality and wellbeing. It is effective in achieving structural changes in the musculoskeletal system, the back, neck, knees and joints. Yet, it has a wider application in that it works with many levels of disease and pain. The name is derived from the system’s associated bones. Included are those of the skull, face and mouth which make up the cranium, also the spinal column which extends down to the sacrum.

Cranio Sacral is well respected for its relief in back and neck pain, sport injuries, and it is also highly effective in the treatment of such complaints as colic, sleeplessness in infants and young children, behavioural problems, ADD, ADHD, phobias and fears.

Tralee Alternative Therapies was the first clinic in Kerry to provide Craino Sacral Therapy for infants. Having years of experience as a midwife and registered nurse prior to training as a Craino Sacral Therapist is a major advantage for the client, be they a newborn or adult.
