What is CranioSacral Therapy?
CranioSacral Therapy is a very gentle, light touch approach that releases tensions in the central nervous system so that every other system in the body can relax, self-correct, and free itself of pain and discomfort. The practitioner uses about 5 grams of pressure to find and release the tensions throughout the body.
How does CranioSacral Therapy work?
The basic premise of CranioSacral Therapy is the central nervous system controls a lot of processes in your body. The craniosacral system has a great impact on the central nervous system, because it provides the fluid for its nutrients. In your life stresses and traumas, blockages occur in this system (similar to trigger points in muscles) which decrease the performance of the nervous system. Using gentle touch to correct these blockages, your body can restore proper function to the nervous system and other systems that the nervous system interacts with.
Who could benefit from a CranioSacral Therapy session?
Almost everyone could benefit from CranioSacral. It is gentle in nature, so it can be practiced on a wide variety of people, including infants. It is very effective in helping people with migraines, neck and back pain, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, fatigue, TMJ syndrome, colic, scoliosis, emotional distress, stress, and many more. CranioSacral facilitates your body's healing.
What is a CranioSacral Therapy session like?
In our office, we usually use CranioSacral in conjunction with a Chiropractic adjustment or Acupuncture. After either of those sessions, CranioSacral can be performed to further help your body's healing. Many people feel very relaxed during and after a treatment. Some may even feel very emotional, which is normal. CranioSacral Therapy is highly individualized so there are many ways your body can process the treatment.

After just one session of Acupuncture and a Chiropractic Adjustment my pain level immediately began to reside and I had a renewed sense of hope. I really could not believe it. Dr. Kristine had already started giving me back my life.
You did it again! I feel like a million bucks! I truly feel like I get my "money's worth" when you treat me. Not only do you treat the problem at hand but you go the extra mile to do some preventative work.
Dr. Baker is my miracle. Her caring ways and knowledgeable hands have helped me when no one else would. When I moved away from the area, I tried another acupuncturist and did not get as good results as with Dr. Baker. She has changed my life and I thank God every day that I met her and that she cared enough to help when no one else would.
I remember leaving my initial appointment feeling very empowered. I didn’t feel guilty, defeated, or responsible anymore. I felt very hopeful. I truly believe that the regular acupuncture and chiropractic adjustments played a huge role in my success with getting pregnant this second time.
I feel so blessed to have been referred to Dr. Baker as I feel that she has totally improved my quality of life. I will always be grateful to my friend at church for leading me to her and I will always be grateful to her for making my life more enjoyable.
