Tibetan Cranial

Tibetan Cranial® is an ancient healing tradition from the Himalayan highlands. Known traditionally as "Thoba Khujatag," Tibetan Cranial was developed in Tibetan monasteries and has passed directly from teachers to apprentices over thousands of years. It is a disciplined technique designed to realign and restore our innate capacity for self-healing. Tibetan Cranial helps the body correct its own imbalances so that it can heal itself. Sophisticated pulse readings provide the means to deliver the most appropriate treatment. During the session, the practitioner works on the head and neck, using pulses to help the body achieve optimal balance.  

I'm still feeling the benefits of this treatment 4 days ago. I've been telling my friends & yoga students. Everyone can benefit from Tibetan Cranial treatment. Powerful yet subtle. Thank you. I will be back!

Working with Susan helped me recover from a concussion. Within a few sessions, my headaches and the buzzing in my head were significantly lessened. I was amazed by Susan's extensive knowledge of and expertise in Tibetan Cranial. That, combined with her genuine compassion and devotion to one's healing, made all the different in restoring my health.

I’ve struggled with chronic neck pain and stiffness for nearly 40 years, probably from a car accident.  I’ve tried medication, massage, chiropractic care and supervised weightlifting, with only minor, temporary relief.  The Tibetan Cranial care provided by Susan over the course of approximately eight sessions has provided more relief than 40 years of these other treatment modalities.  I look forward to many years of Susan’s healing touch.

Unlike many other systems, Tibetan Cranial does not focus on a specific disease or diagnosis, but aids in restoring overall balance. Because the work helps to restore the person's own ability to regain balance, people have reported relief from a wide variety of symptoms. Many people with various symptoms (headaches, migraines, back and neck pain, anxiety, head injury, stress-related conditions, depression, many nervous-system related issues, and more) particularly enjoy TC. 

TC takes place in a quiet setting. The person rests on a specially designed TC table. The practitioner kneels at the end of the table above the client’s head. At various times, the practitioner moves to the client's head, hands, or feet to assess pulses. The practitioner then applies subtle touch to the head, face, mouth, jaw, and neck. During the treatment, pulse readings are repeated and adjustments are made until optimum balance is achieved. The session ends with a "seal," followed by a period of time of quiet relaxation.

Sessions last approximately 60 minutes. For more information on preparing for a session, what to expect during a session, and post-session recommendations, visit TC Session Preparation.
