Enhancing Health Together: The Synergy of Craniosacral Therapy & Chiropractic Adjustments

– Written by Amber Novak, Craniosacral Therapist Burlington, VT


At 7 Wonder Wellness, I am passionate about holistic approaches to health and well-being. In my practice, I often find that combining different modalities can lead to profound improvements in my clients’ health. Craniosacral Therapy and chiropractic adjustments are an example of how we can use different tools to support the same goal of improved health.

Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on technique that aims to release tension and promote balance within the craniosacral system, which includes the bones, nerves, fluids, and connective tissues surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Through subtle manipulation of the skull, spine, and pelvis, Craniosacral Therapy can help to alleviate pain, reduce stress, and enhance the body’s natural healing abilities.

Chiropractic adjustments, on the other hand, focus on realigning the spine and correcting musculoskeletal imbalances to restore proper function to the nervous system. By applying controlled force to specific areas of the spine, chiropractors can improve joint mobility, alleviate pain, and optimize nerve function, leading to improved overall health and well-being.

While Craniosacral Therapy and chiropractic adjustments may seem different on the surface, they share a common goal: to promote harmony and balance within the body. When used together, these modalities can enhance each other’s effectiveness, providing clients with a more comprehensive approach to healing.
For example:

Craniosacral Therapy can help to release tension and restrictions within the craniosacral system, creating a more receptive environment for chiropractic adjustments. By addressing soft tissue restrictions and promoting relaxation of the central nervous system, Craniosacral Therapy can make it easier for chiropractors to perform adjustments and and for clients to hold them for longer periods of time.

Conversely, chiropractic adjustments can complement Craniosacral Therapy by addressing structural misalignments that may contribute to tension and dysfunction within the craniosacral system. By restoring proper alignment to the spine and pelvis, chiropractic adjustments can support the body’s ability to maintain balance and facilitate the benefits of Craniosacral Therapy.

By combining Craniosacral Therapy and chiropractic adjustments, clients can experience a wide range of benefits, including:

  • Reduced pain and discomfort
  • Improved posture and alignment
  • Enhanced mobility and flexibility
  • Reduced stress and tension
  • Enhanced nervous system function
  • Improved overall health and well-being

I believe in the power of the body to heal itself and sometimes it takes an integrative approach to care to reach optimal health.

Craniosacral Therapy and chiropractic adjustments are powerful healing modalities that can complement each other beautifully. By combining these two approaches, clients can experience a more holistic and comprehensive path to improved health and vitality.
If you already have experienced the wonderful relief from chiropractic work and are ready to take it to the next level of integrative care, I invite you to schedule a session with me at 7 Wonder Wellness. Together, we can help you unlock your body’s innate ability to heal and thrive.
