About Tibetan Cranial®

Tibetan Cranial (TC) helps your brain function more effectively. It increases circulation in your head and improves neural connections. It can be likened to giving your brain a rejuvenating bath. When your brain functions at its highest potential, it is able to send information to areas of your body that need healing. 

The beauty of this work is its ability to assist your body in correcting its own imbalances. TC reminds your body that it can indeed heal itself. You are the author of your own health and disease; you are a unique expression inseparable from the unity of life. This philosophy is the backbone of TC.

TC has a rich and ancient history that originated in the Himalayan highlands about 2000-3000 years ago. This healing art is more than a modality and a method of anatomy; it is a lineage of sacred knowledge that has been passed down through generations of deeply devout Buddhist Monks.

TC is a unique combination of disciplined technique and attuned intuition. It is based on the natural integration of body, mind and Soul. This dynamic and profound method fully unifies all aspects of your unique and natural sense of well-being.

The results of even one session can continue long after it has been completed. However, depending on your condition, multiple consecutive sessions or periodic "check-ups" may be recommended to fully integrate subtle body structures.

The Scientific Basis for TC

Cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) cushions your brain, regulates the brain extra-cellular fluid, allows for distribution of neuro-active substances, and is the "sink" that collects the waste products produced by the brain. This is essential for proper functioning of the central nervous system. CSF also purifies neurons and glial cells, delivers nutrients and removes toxic substances from the central nervous system.

Did you know that every time you hit your head, your brain swells a little bit causing scar tissue and blockages, and that these blockages can prevent your brain from functioning optimally? You have fluids (blood and cerebrospinal fluid) within and around your brain which should be able to flow freely to allow your brain to function properly.

Even slight cranial trauma from bumping your head on something hard can cause compression or misalignment in your skull.

Blood vessels around traumatized areas become inflamed leading to scar tissue. When CSF encounters scar tissue, it has to circumvent the area. The nerves on the other side of the scar tissue become compromised and dry out. Dry nerves cause a reduction in nerve transmission.

"Being a long time Migraine sufferer I was coming into my first session on my 20th consecutive day of my latest Migraine. The next day, following my treatment, I awoke for the first day in three weeks - pain free. So far this has held and I have not felt the pain that I have had for so long. Up to this point in my life (44 yrs now) I have not considered myself to be a 'spiritual' person and Heidi has introduced spirituality to me as well. I was only looking for help with my Migraines and she has offered so much more. If you allow her to work her magic on you, I doubt you'll be sorry!"

How Tibetan Cranial works

During a TC session, your cranial structures are fine-tuned allowing for impeded cerebral spinal fluid to move evenly around scar tissue.


  • Enables more naturally occurring electricity to move throughout your nervous system.

  • All areas of your brain and spinal column receive more hydration and information is more readily received throughout neural pathways.

  • Your brain functions more optimally and is able to send information to other areas of your body that requires maintenance and healing.

  • Your nervous system is strengthened and restored, thus chronic pain and other deep issues find the opportunity to transform leading to overall well-being.

What to expect during a Tibetan Cranial session?

TC takes place in a quiet setting. Heidi remains in a state of prayer, mantra and meditation and you are invited to also practice any kind of prayer or positive affirmations according to yout preference throughout the session.

Loose, comfortable clothing is recommended (no jeans or hooded sweatshirts). You remain fully clothed, removing only your shoes, belt and jewelries.

You lie on a wooden table while Heidi kneels at the end of the table at your head.

At various times, pulses on your head, wrists and feet are assessed. Fine-tuning is made to your neck, cranium, face, mouth and jaw.

Experiences vary according to the condition of each individual, and from session to session.

At various times Heidi will touch vital points on your skull, wrist and ankles, deeply assessing pulses that give important information about the systems in your body. From this information, specific fine-tuning is made.

During the treatment, pulse reading is repeated and fine-tuning is made until optimum balance is achieved. During the session, your skull, face, mouth, jaw and neck are areas typically attended to. As a result, the whole body instinctively relaxes into alignment.

Another common result is that the spine will realign with the rest of the body without any adjustment applied directly to the spine itself.

During the entire session, Heidi holds an internal sacred space of prayer, mantra and meditation.

At the end, the work is sealed, followed by a period of quiet relaxation. This process allows for a full integration to take place.

  1. Wear comfortable loose and soft clothing such as sweat pants, leggings or yoga pants.
  2. Sign Heidi Nordlund's Waiver.
  3. Take off belt and all metal (incl. underwire).
  4. Remove jewelry (ear rings, necklaces, bracelets).
  5. Tell Heidi if you are wearing dental appliances.

Please DO NOT:

  • Drink alcohol or smoke marijuana.
  • Wear jeans, turtle neck sweaters, shirts with a hoodsie and clothing with embedded metal. 
  • Take Advil or other pain killers if possible.


What typically happens after a Tibetan Cranial session?

Profound relaxation is a natural result of a TC Session, and it is common for some people to sleep several hours after a session. Others may experience a noticeable increase in energy.

A reduction in pain or increase in overall functioning may occur immediately after a session, or could develop gradually over the next several days.

Because TC results in a natural healing process, the results may occur weeks after a session.

For some people a body reorganization process may occur as the body adapts to the release of previously held patterns.

Overall, most people experience a profound state of well-being.

How many sessions to expect?

It takes a minimum of 3-5 sessions to stabilize the cranial bones to the point that they have achieved their maximum improvement and their greatest degree of health and balance.

For most people it is most efficient to do the sessions close together, ideally consecutive days, however, if that is not possible then a few days apart, weekly, bi-weekly or monthly. The time between appointments can be extended over many months but it is less efficient and can increase the total number of sessions needed. 

During each session, the core patterns are further balanced and the root cause of the symptoms can be addressed.

Once stable an average person comes in for a tune up 1-2 times a year.
