CranioSacral Therapy is a time-tested technique that evaluates and corrects problems related to the craniosacral system. It is a gentle by hand technique that affects the very environment in which the brain and spinal cord function.
This manual therapy encourages the body’s natural healing mechanisms to improve the operation of the central nervous system, relieve the negative effects of stress, improve overall health and strengthen the body’s immune system.
CranioSacral Therapy is practiced worldwide by doctors and therapists of all known disciplines including, medical doctors, doctors of chiropractic medicine, doctors of Oriental medicine, psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, physical therapists, acupuncturists, massage therapists and other professional body workers.

Progressive relaxation, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Psychophilogic Integration Therapy, Relaxation Motivation Facilitation Technique (RMF), are some of the techniques routinely used in stress management. Techniques such as craniosacral therapy and therapeutic massage can also be great stress relievers.
Reflex Integration Technique (RIT)
Reflex Integration Technique (RIT) is an energy-based technique used in the evaluation and treatment of conditions involving the nervous system, muscles, joints and organs.
RIT draws upon the principles of Chinese acupuncture and meridian therapy, Japanese energy balancing, cranial and cerebrospinal fluid dynamics therapy and pulse energy technique.
RIT is a by hand, non-forceful, technique that can be successfully used as a standalone approach or in combination with other techniques such as craniosacral therapy, used here at Cherubino Health Center.
