Intuitive Cranial Sacral Therapy and Organology
Dr. Johnson has practiced osteopathic manual manipulation and cranial sacral therapy for 25 years. He has combined these skills with his knowledge of embryology, neurology, alchemical 3-fold dynamics, 7-fold-organology, and 12-fold formative relationships in the body to offer an intuitive, and multi-dimensional approach to healing. This treatment involves an individualized session based on sensing areas where there are “functional” weaknesses in the organ systems, neurological pathways and vital energy flows. Treatment can involve both standard osteopathic techniques of counterstain, chapman’s points muscle energy release as well as visceral, cranial sacral and balancing of vital energy pathways in vital traditional energy centers such as Chakra regions. Often moist heat and essential oils and meditative imaging are used to facilitate individual healing.

And, the central nervous system is heavily influenced by the craniosacral system - the membranes and fluid that surround, protect and nourish the brain and spinal cord. By normalizing the environment around the brain and spinal cord and enhancing the body's ability to self-correct, Cranio-Sacral therapy is able to alleviate a wide variety of dysfunctions.
