Massage Therapy for Low Back Pain

We all have cranial fluid that travels from the cranium (brain) down the spinal column to the sacrum and then back again in a specific natural rhythm. When there are blockages in the body's energy system, tight fascia, injure to the tissues of the body (soft tissue/bone), birth trauma or any other type of dysfunction that affects the body, the cranial fluid is inhibited.

Nowadays, there are many clinics out there that provide craniosacral therapy to relieves compression in the bones of the head. All you need to do is type a query 'centers for cranial sacral therapy near me' and you will find the list of centers that are offering such therapy.

The cause of their pain is as diverse as their personalities, and so too are the treatments they receive. These muscles all have a role to play in the position of the hips. If you think muscles as pullies and bones as levers, you can visualize what might happen if one of those pullies shortened and the lever is left in a position to change, forcing all the other pullies to adjust.

There are many dynamics that we see as a massage therapist when considering client back pain. In the clinical context, we check posture, hip position in relation to one another, and the texture of the surrounding soft tissue.

The patterns of dysfunction and methods to treat them are as endless as the stars. In our practice of massage therapy, we use techniques such as deep tissue massage including myofascial release, trigger point therapy, and neuromuscular therapy, as well as complementary techniques such as Kinesio tape, stretch, reflexology, and craniosacral therapy.
