Health care is an essential service, therefore we are OPEN during provincial lockdowns.

We have made some important changes to keep you and our therapists safe.

Following the Ontario Ministry of Health and our governing Colleges guidelines, these are the important measures we are taking to ensure patient and therapist safety:

1) Initial COVID-19 screening questions when booking your appointment and also when you arrive for your appointment.
2) We will ask that you wear a mask or cloth face covering to the clinic.
3) We have taken chairs out of waiting area and have 6 feet apart markers on floors.
4) We have installed a plexiglass barrier at front desk.
5) We have reduced patient bookings and spaced out bookings so that you can go directly into the treatment room, not waiting room, unless you are late.
6) Hand sanitizer will be available for you to use.
7) Therapist will be wearing a disposable surgical/procedural mask, and will increase their hand washing and hand sanitizing practices.
8) Between treatments the therapist will disinfect the table, equipment and anything used/ touched in treatment room. As always clean fresh linens will be supplied by our linen company.
9) Reception and waiting area will be disinfected regularly.

craniosacral therapy

What is it?

CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the function of a body system called the CranioSacral system. The CranioSacral system is comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid which surrounds, nourishes, and protects the brain and spinal cord. Like the pulse of the cardiovascular system, the CranioSacral system has a rhythm that can be felt throughout the body.

Using a touch generally no heavier than the weight of a small coin, skilled practitioners can monitor this rhythm at key body areas to pinpoint the source of an obstruction or stress. Once a source has been determined, they can assist the natural movement of the fluid and related soft tissue to help the body self-correct. This simple action is often all it takes to remove a restriction. Other times, CST may be combined with other complementary therapies to help restore the body to its optimum functioning level.

Typical treatment session

In a typical CranioSacral Therapy session the client remains clothed and lies on their back (if possible) on the treatment table. The therapist may place their hands on key evaluation areas such as the ankles, head, neck and lower back, assessing the state of the client's CranioSacral system.

The treatment itself involves the application of very light forces applied by the therapist's hands. Limbs may be picked up and moved gently and slowly as the body tissues are allowed to 'unwind' themselves. A typical session lasts an hour - though half-hour sessions may be better for children and infants.
