How can you try this at home on yourself? Place both hands behind your head. Use your middle three fingers from each hand, placed on the base of the neck.
Apply light pressure, dropping the head forward and back. This light pressure can give you relaxation, alleviating headaches and lessening neck pain.
2. Cranial Sacral Therapy for Anxiety
For anxiety, place both hands on the top of your head, where the center part would be. Use all five fingers and play along the part like piano scales. Move from the front toward the back of the head. Repeat this three to five times in five-second intervals.
3. Cranial Sacral Therapy for Lower Back Pain
The lower back is another common area for pain. Tennis balls are part of this solution. Lie on the floor and place a tennis ball beneath your tailbone on each side of the butt. Gently rock back and forth to get some relaxation and relief. Straighten out your legs if that is comfortable.
You can also place the tennis balls beneath the neck while you are lying in the floor to relax your neck and head.
