Craniosacral Therapy Seattle

Craniosacral therapy is a gentle manual therapy, which involves lightly touching cranial bones in order to influence the cerebrospinal fluid which flows through the brain and around the spinal cord. It was originally developed by an osteopathic physician to help release pain patterns and correct dysfunction in the soft tissues surrounding the central nervous system.

The brain and spinal cord, which comprise the central nervous system, govern the entire body, and they need proper flow of cerebrospinal fluid to function optimally. Unfortunately, many stressors and injuries can disrupt its flow, leading to suboptimal performance of the central nervous system and causing many symptoms such as headaches, concentration issues, TMJ dysfunction, and chronic misalignments of the spine, to name a few.

Craniosacral therapy is also an effective tool for healing birth injuries. During delivery, an infant’s skull is significantly compressed to allow it to travel through the mother’s pelvis. This is a normal process, and typically the bones settle back into place without issue. There are times, however, when the cranial bones incur excessive trauma and need extra help settling back into place. This especially happens if the infant is pulled too hard out of the birth canal during delivery. Infants with birth injuries that haven’t healed properly can experience an increase in nursing, colic, teething problems, torticollis, and even palsy. However, receiving CST within the first few weeks after birth can significantly help to reduce these symptoms, if not prevent them.

During a typical CST session, the patient lies down on a massage table, and the practitioner gently places their hands over various parts of the patient’s head. If the patient is an infant they are placed on their parent’s lap for this. The practitioner then uses their hands to detect the movement of the cerebrospinal fluid. If restrictions of the cranial bones are found, they gently guide them back into place, with gentle touch. Patients usually report feeling relaxed during this process and leave with a sense of ease and well-being.

Dr. Tressa Pinkleton provides craniosacral therapy at Seattle Naturopathy and Acupuncture Center. She has advanced training in CST and experience working with infants, children and adults.

Get Food Allergy Testing at Seattle!

At Seattle Naturopathy and Acupuncture Center, we know how hard food allergies can be on you, especially if you don’t know what foods you are allergic too. Food intolerances and food allergies are terms often confused with one another. Classic food allergies cause anaphylactic reactions like hives, swelling, difficulty breathing, or in severe cases death. They are mostly associated with peanuts, shellfish, strawberries, etc., and people usually realize right away what triggered their reaction. Food intolerances, or sensitivities, on the other hand are more difficult to diagnose and many people are unaware they have them because they tend to cause delayed reactions. The most common reactions to food intolerances are migraines/headaches, chronic digestive disturbances, eczema and other skin conditions, chronic ear or throat infections, and joint pain. The range of symptoms from food allergies can be from mild conditions to life threatening conditions whereas food intolerance symptoms are usually chronic and less severe. Determining if what you are eating is causing your ill health can change your level of wellness significantly, and food intolerance testing is the surefire was to get the diagnosis you need to start feeling well again.

Once we have pinpointed the foods, we will then come up with a treatment plan

Don’t Self-Diagnose!

Understanding the symptoms of food allergies can help you to understand how easily you might be misdiagnosed. Often food intolerances are masked by their symptoms. You might want to run an IgG food intolerance panel if you experience:

  • Frequent headaches or migraines
  • Stomach upset or intestinal upset – IBS, colitis, etc.
  • Skins problems like eczema
  • Chronic ear infections, sinusitis, or tonsillitis
  • Joint pain

All of these symptoms, and others as well, might be caused or aggravated by foods, and getting to the root cause of these problems can make an enormous difference. Only proper testing will provide the answers.

Methods Used to Diagnose Food Allergies

  • Blood test
  • Skin prick test
  • Trial elimination diet
  • And an oral food challenge
  • Other diagnostic procedures

At Seattle Naturopathy and Acupuncture Center, we strive to improve the quality of our patients’ lives. Contact us today for an appointment for food allergy testing.
