Craniosacral is a light touch bodywork technique that helps relieve tension, pain, and dysfunction throughout the body. It works through gentle adjustments to balance the flow of cerebrospinal fluid. This is the fluid that surrounds and cushions the brain and spinal cord and helps protect the central nervous system.
Dr. Peltz uses Craniosacral therapy in her practice for a variety of complaints including headaches and migraines, neck and back pain, chronic sinusitis, post concussion, and most often to calm a stressed nervous system. Many of Dr. Peltz's patients deal with a lot of stress in their daily lives which keeps them in a sympathetic nervous state and fight or flight response. Craniosacral therapy is a deeply relaxing treatment that allows patients to shift into their parasympathetic nervous system or relaxed state. This is where they do their best healing.
