Craniosacral Therapy w/ Dr. Amber


Dr. Amber integrates different physical medicine therapies in her treatment to address a variety of musculoskeletal concerns. "Simply put, I love helping people get better and manage disease. As an ND, I know that optimal health is achieved by treating the root cause of disease, supporting the body’s self-healing mechanism, and finding balance of body, mind, and spirit. It’s an honor to help patients navigate their health journey!"

Dr. Amber’s favorite therapy/treatment that she offers here at PCNH
is
Craniosacral Therapy.

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach to healing that focuses on the craniosacral system, which includes the bones, membranes, and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. The therapy is based on the idea that the body's natural rhythm, which is created by the movement of cerebrospinal fluid, can be disrupted by stress, injury, or illness. By using gentle touch to release restrictions in the craniosacral system, CST practitioners aim to improve overall health and wellbeing.

Here are some of the benefits of Craniosacral Therapy:

Pain Relief: CST has been shown to be effective in reducing pain, especially in conditions such as migraines, headaches, chronic neck and back pain, and TMJ disorders. By releasing tension in the craniosacral system, CST can help to reduce pain and improve range of motion.

Stress Reduction: CST can be a powerful tool for managing stress and promoting relaxation. By working with the craniosacral system, CST can help to release tension in the body, calm the nervous system, and promote a sense of calm and wellbeing.

Improved Immune Function: The craniosacral system plays a key role in the functioning of the immune system. By releasing restrictions in the craniosacral system, CST can help to improve immune function, which can lead to better overall health.

Enhanced Emotional Wellbeing: CST can be an effective therapy for addressing emotional issues, such as anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). By promoting relaxation and releasing tension in the body, CST can help to improve mood, reduce anxiety, and promote a sense of wellbeing.

Improved Sleep: CST can be helpful in improving sleep quality by promoting relaxation and reducing tension in the body. People who have received CST often report better sleep quality and an improved ability to fall asleep and stay asleep.

Relief from Chronic Fatigue: CST can be an effective therapy for people with chronic fatigue syndrome. By releasing tension in the body and promoting relaxation, CST can help to reduce fatigue and increase energy levels.

Improved Digestion: The craniosacral system plays a key role in the functioning of the digestive system. By releasing restrictions in the craniosacral system, CST can help to improve digestive function, reduce bloating and discomfort, and promote overall digestive health.

Improved Mental Clarity and Focus: By promoting relaxation and reducing tension in the body, CST can help to improve mental clarity and focus. People who have received CST often report feeling more alert and focused after their sessions.

In summary, Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, non-invasive therapy that can be effective in treating a wide range of conditions. By releasing tension in the body and promoting relaxation, CST can help to reduce pain, improve immune function, enhance emotional wellbeing, improve sleep quality, relieve chronic fatigue, improve digestion, and promote mental clarity and focus.
