Our cranial dural system is essential in protecting our central nervous system. When it’s strained due to a head or neck injury, such as a concussion or traumatic brain injury, or tensed from PTSD, stress, or anxiety, it can send our central nervous system spiraling out of control and activate or fight, flight, or freeze mode. Over time, it can feel impossible to relax the mind, find relief from pain, and focus on the things you love.
Through CRT, your therapist will gently stretch the muscles at the base of the skull to realign the bones of the cranium, helping to restore proper movement. This “release” helps relax the nervous system to better manage everyday stressors, relieve muscle tension and pain throughout the body, and reboot the brain to calm negative thought patterns.
A CRT session lasts only a few minutes, but many patients report feeling more relaxed immediately and enjoy greater balance and peace in the days to follow. With regular treatment, they experience long-lasting relief and an improved quality of life.
