Video: Myofascial Release & Craniosacral Therapy with a CranioCradle

The CranioCradle is a soft and easy to use self-treatment tool that relieves stress, tension, and pain.  In just 10 minutes you can restore your body to a deep state of comfort and relaxation.  It can really help your whole body let go, while providing people with headaches, migrains, tension, neck and shoulder pain a simple and effective way to relieve their symptoms. The Cranio Cradle can also be used on your back to mobilize your spine and release trigger points and your sacrum (the bony plate at the base of your spone) to provide gentle traction for your low back.

Below is my video and instructions on how to use the Cranio Cradle.  The instructions that come with your CranioCradle show and describe where to place it.  Please note that when under your sacrum, the flat base of the CranioCradle should be against your body.

If at anytime something does not feel right, please stop and check in with yourself.  If you feel that you have further questions or concerns beyond this video, please leave a comment below or schedule an appointment with your local physical therapist.
