    Cranial/Sacral vs Massage or Chiropractic

    Has anyone had any luck staying in physical alignment with cranial sacral work as opposed to regular massage or chiropractic. I tried it for the first time a week ago and I am not sure what to think?

    What's Cranial/Sacral work?? I know what the two areas are/do. I just have never heard of what you are talking about. Could you elaborate?? Thanks..

    CranioSacral

    I don't put much belief behind CranioSacral therapies. I have had introductions to it and have had people attempt to show me and feel/find meridians, but I am skeptical.

    What is your alignment issue?
    If you were to tell us a bit more we could possibly give you a better answer.

    Hey guys. To answer road dirts question, crainial/sacral work involves (from what I understand) using trigger points on the body to loosen up soft tissue and alighn the joints. I experienced no pain during the session but boy was I sore and dizzy after...for two days. My sacrum and neck did go back into place however. My deal is that I have a short right leg (11mm) and frequently my SI's go out from riding and upper back and neck. I read Andy Pruitts book and had a bike fit done at UC Davis. Hopfully by moving my cleats forward on my right shoe I will alleviate some of my issues.
