Cranial Release Technique (CRT) 

What is cranial release technique and what are the benefits?

The Cranial Release Technique (CRT) is an application that takes only a few minutes to administer, but has powerful results. Through a quick hands-on, gentle manipulation, CRT addresses the sympathetic nervous system (the one that dictates our natural fight or flight response) and shifts the brain back into a more relaxed state where it can assist the body to maintain a proper functioning status.

This manipulation allows the body to experience a deep release of tension caused by stress on the nervous system that can negatively affect the rest of the body, including all of the muscles and its connective tissues. This is a gentle, non-invasive treatment that is appropriate for people of all ages, including infants and the elderly, as well as expecting mothers.


Recipients of the Cranial Release Technique rountinely report positive changes in the following areas/conditions :

  • Neck & back pain (pain relief, increased range of motion)
  • Headaches (migraines)
  • Extremity pain (shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee and ankle)
  • Low Back Pain (Sciatica)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Insomnia
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Mental focus (clarity of thinking)
  • Stress relief (feeling of ‘calm’)
  • Fatigue (more energy)
  • Asthma
  • TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder)
  • Allergies
  • Digestive disorders
  • Sinus pain/pressure
  • Autism / ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder)
  • Anxiety / Depression
  • Anger management
  • Diabetes
  • Vision (clarity)
  • Sports (strength & balance)

Cranial release technique has also been shown to slow the aging process of the brain and therefore slow the process of related illnesses, such as Alzheimer’s Disease.

Colicky babies or those with digestive difficulties may benefit greatly from this gentle procedure – allowing both relief for the baby, as well as the frustrated, saddened, sleepless parents.

By assisting the body to maintain a positive state of homeostasis, the immune system is strengthened and illness and disease are thwarted more frequently. This technique is an excellent choice for providing such assistance where greatly needed.
