CranioSacral therapy is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system – comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.
Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.
By complementing the body’s natural healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction, including:
- Migraine Headaches
- Chronic Neck and Back Pain
- Motor-Coordination Impairments
- Central Nervous System Disorders
- Orthopedic Problems
- Concussions and Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Infantile Disorders
- Learning Disabilities
- Chronic Fatigue
- Emotional Difficulties
- Stress and Tension-Related Problems
- Fibromyalgia and other Connective-Tissue Disorders
- Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)
- Neurovascular or Immune Disorders
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Post-Surgical Dysfunction*
Distance and In-person Sessions Available
As a practitioner, Myra Lapidus provides sessions in person and remotely via skype or phone. She has found distance healing sessions and distance CranioSacral therapy sessions to be particularly beneficial for individuals with autism who do not like the sense of touch as well as individuals with a chronic illness who have a difficult time leaving their home or who are bedridden, as well as individuals who are not local to Sedona.
Myra also sometimes enhances her client’s craniosacral therapy sessions with other techniques that she has developed including chi acupuncture brain balancing, and various aspects of the energy healing modality she developed (full spectrum energy healing), based on the client’s needs and unique situation.
