Cranio-sacral Balancing

The Craniosacral system reaches all different systems in the body from muscle tension to digestion, sleep, hormone, respiratory and skin disorders as well as depression, worry, anxiety and inner stress. This deeply relaxing treatments helps the body find equillibrium between parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system and to remove stress and tension from the different body systems.

The craniosacral system is directly linked to all cells in the body  -nervous system, movement, muscles, digestion, hormones, reproductive system, circulation, respiration, immune system, lymphatic system. Cranio-Sacral balancing is a holistic treatment where all parts of you being is affected both  physical body, pshychological aspects as well as the essence of your soul.
