Welcome

We are a growing group of professional health care providers who feature cranio-sacral therapy, cranial therapy, cranial osteopathy and biodynamic cranial work to help patients and clients.

As an association, we work in two spheres: one, to promote public awareness and education about cranial therapies; and two, to provide a forum for professionals from diverse branches of cranial training to meet and advance their skills.

Northwest Cranial Association

The Northwest Cranial Association is an organization of practitioners committed to fostering the acceptance of different schools of thought in cranial therapeutics. Our ideal is to learn from one another through the experiences we have had as practitioners who focus on body-centered therapies.
 

Northwest Cranial Association is powered by its members and the community that it serves. 
Joining as a member provides benefits of having a spot in the members directory to promote your practice, participate in members quarterly meetings and other members events, share educational opportunities with other members and the public and becoming a member of one of our committees or join the board of directors.
