Cranial Sacral Therapy

Cranio(Cranial) Sacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, whole-person, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance.  Using a soft touch, which is generally no greater than 5 grams – about the weight of a nickel – practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround and include the central nervous system.  The inter-connections of mind, body and spirit are deeply acknowledged.  CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, create optimal conditions for health, encourage vitality and facilitate a sense of well-being. It is also an effective form of treatment for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.  It is suitable for people of all ages including babies, children and the elderly, and can be effective in acute or chronic cases.

Cranial Sacral/Massage/Percussion Table Sessions

The ultimate experience in whole-body unwinding. The Percussion Table, invented by Dr. Swidler, is based on the idea of the original Percussion Hammer taught by Dr. Robert Fulford, DO. This percussive device, locally applied to a specific body area, unwound some of the most resistant, localized injury patterns, very rapidly.  Dr. Swidler’s table, nicknamed, the “Re-orient Express”, does this globally (to the entire body at once), accelerating release at a rate previously unavailable to those utilizing manual medicine.  While appearing similar to a regular massage table, once it’s turned on, you feel like you are lying in a sleeper car on an old time train.  However, when it stops, the real ride begins!  Sensation and a process of body unwinding occurs that will continue to work through the layers of the injury onion for weeks.  All of this takes place while the table is running, with the therapist facilitating through release work. For more information on the Percussion Table® please view the video below where Dr. Swidler discusses the table at length. (Insert video)

 Sports Injury/Body Alignment

This is a great therapy to reduce or eliminate pain for sports enthusiasts and those with physically active lifestyles.  These techniques are aimed at creating balanced body alignment, along with equal and opposing cranial motion, in order to reset the body to optimal performance.

Body Intuitive Sessions

Body intuition utilizes our natural, universal ability to ‘sense’ or tune into the energies and systems of the body.  By using this ability we can identify areas of pain and restriction in order to quickly navigate body pathways and initiate release in the direction of the original injury.
