Ventura County Therapist Offers Innovative Pain-Free Solutions for Nagging Injuries

Share Article

Massage Therapist Tanja Seagraves practices CranioSacral Therapy and Visceral Manipulation, two manual therapies offering gentle pain relief from a variety of injuries, for Ventura County residents.

Modern medicine often treats the symptoms without finding the cause, which neither solves the problem, nor limits the time and cost of recovery.

Both CranioSacral Therapy and Visceral Manipulation are internationally recognized modalities featuring effective and successful techniques for pain-free solutions to aches and pains previously treated, missed, or masked by medication.

Visceral Manipulation provides light, specifically placed pressure encouraging normal mobility, tone and tissue motion of the internal organs and their connective tissue. Results affect the physiological function and the structural integrity of the entire body. Seagraves says, “Modern medicine often treats the symptoms without finding the cause, which neither solves the problem, nor limits the time and cost of recovery.” Jean-Pierre Barral, creator of Visceral Manipulation, Registered Physical Therapist and Osteopath, who TIME magazine named, “one of the Top Healing Innovators to watch in the new millennium,” believed that “gentle manual therapy does not focus solely on the site of pain or dysfunction, but evaluates the entire body to find the source of the problem.”

Osteopathic Physician Dr. John Upledger created a treatment called CranioSacral Therapy, a complimentary method for releasing the tensions which prevent the body from relaxing and self-correcting. This treatment is used to detect and correct imbalances in the craniosacral system, which may be the cause of sensory, motor, or neurological dysfunction. The craniosacral system consists of membranes and cerebrospinal fluid surrounding and protecting the brain and spinal cord, extending from the bones of the skull, face and mouth, which make up the cranium, down to the sacrum, or tailbone area. Use of force to correct these areas can be extremely painful and dangerous.

“Some treatments cause greater pain and increased inflammation, doing more harm than good,” Seagraves adds. CranioSacral Therapy has been successfully used to treat headaches, neck and back pain, TMJ, chronic fatigue, motor coordination difficulties, eye problems, and central nervous system disorders among others. Injuries caused by automobile, sports or household accidents, old surgeries, and pain suffered by patients of all ages – children to the frail and ill – benefit most from CranioSacral Therapy. Seagraves concludes, “The success I attribute to my clients’ recovery is directly connected to gentle, pain-free techniques. Recovery goes much faster and insurance companies seem to like that.”
