Northwest Cranial Association

Who we are

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 find relief.

Our supporters include medical doctors, osteopaths, chiropractors, naturopaths, acupuncturists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, massage therapists, mental health care providers and more.

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

Our Mission

Our mission is to foster connection. The NWCA values each lineage of cranial therapeutics. We bring together diverse practitioners to encourage skill sharing and professional support. Together we educate the public and enhance our gifts that we share in service to the community.


Our History

The Northwest Cranial Association (NWCA) began in 2007 with the intent of serving the public and providing a forum to unite cranial therapists. The founders felt a need to enhance communication and skill sharing among the various branches of the cranial tree. This serves the public by improving the knowledge and skill of practitioners as well as providing opportunities for the public to receive the benefits of cranial therapeutics directly. We are 501(c)3 organization and look forward to enriching our membership and the ways in which we serve the health of the community as we continue to grow in the coming years.
