Frequently Asked Questions

 
 

How is Craniosacral therapy different from Physiotherapy?


While many practitioners of Craniosacral therapy are also originally trained as Physiotherapists (P.T. or R.P.T.) the focus of traditional Physiotherapy is on increasing range of motion using a variety of modalities, including electrical devices such as TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) and ultrasound.  


Craniosacral therapy is all hands-on and uses no electrical devices.  It is also based on a holistic model which takes into account emotional factors in physical pain and dysfunction.
