Craniosacral Therapy in Penticton BC

craniosacral therapy

Craniosacral Therapy is gentle, whole body treatment. Its purpose is to evaluate and enhance the functioning of the physiological system called the 'craniosacral system'. The craniosacral system is comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord, our central nervous system. Our central nervous system has great influence over our health.

Craniosacral Practitioners are trained to gently palpate different areas of the body to monitor the craniosacral rhythm and by using light manual techniques free restrictions and locate the original source of dysfunction.

Everyday your body endures physical, mental, emotional stresses and, for a time, your body can compensate and adapt. Eventually there comes a time where it cannot, and tissues begin to tighten. Craniosacral Therapy releases restrictions and tensions deep in the body that cause pain and dysfunction and restrict healing. Craniosacral Therapy helps the body to relax and self correct. By bringing the body into a state of "rest and repair" and out of "fight and flight" it helps reduce the body's over active response to stimuli.

Craniosacral Therapy has been shown to increase the flow of cerebrospinal fluid which may help protect the brain from inflammatory processes, enhance health of the skeletal muscular system and improve whole body health and performance. By implementing the body's own healing system and freeing the central nervous system of restriction it helps relieve dysfunction including:

“Dr. Shayna helped me with severe back pain during my pregnancy and kept me feeling good throughout the last few months. Now she treats my little ones, and there is no one else I would trust them with! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for quality care!”

- Zowie B.

“Without Dr. Ryan, I don't know if I could get out of bed in the morning. He works to keep my body in alignment, even after I do everything I can to make his job difficult. The staff is all great and super friendly. Five stars for sure.”

“Ryan Ranit and his staff are amazing! I always leave his office feeling better, no matter what new injury I come in with. He is very professional and always gives me exercises so that I don’t  have to be in the office every week. I recommend this office for anyone needing a great chiropractor.”
