CranioSacral Therapy: Are there Conditions for which it is Unsuitable?

The short answer is yes. There are conditions for which CranioSacral Therapy is unsuitable. Although, one of the things that attracted me to CranioSacral Therapy was the wide range of conditions it can treat – conditions such as sinusitis, infant colic, tinnitus, migraine, etc., as well as the range of ongoing natural and medical conditions that it supports very effectively such as pregnancy care and chronic pain, as well as other specific conditions.

However, the following conditions make the use of CranioSacral Therapy unsuitable:

  • ·         Recent skull fractures – for example if you have been recently involved in an accident and there has been serious head trauma (intracranial pressure).
  • ·         If a stroke (including acute hemorrhage) has occurred inside the last 6 months. If the condition has been stable for at least six months, then CranioSacral Therapy can be very beneficial.
  •         If there has been any recent leaking of the spinal fluid (Due to lumbar puncture etc.). However, once the situation has stabilized and your doctor has given the okay, CranioSacral Therapy is a very effective treatment aid to healing in this area.

  • Any swelling in the blood vessels of the head (acute cerebral aneurysms.)
