What should I know before I try craniosacral therapy?

Craniosacral therapy has not yet been proven to treat any condition, although it is still under study and has shown some promise, especially in pain relief. However, because of its massage and manipulation of the head and neck area it is not recommended for toddlers or babies, anyone recovering from head or neck injuries or diseases, or those with clotting or blood vessel disorders. Craniosacral therapy should not take the place of standard medical care, and you should let your doctor know you are thinking of trying it.
