Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the function of the craniosacral system, which is made up of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Using a very soft touch, the practitioner works with the bones of the skull and the pelvis. This affects, in turn, the deeper layers of membranes and cerebrospinal fluids in the spinal canal, the brain, and the spinal cord itself. Therapists release restrictions to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.
A pulse through the fluids proceeds through the entire craniosacral system, like a tidal wave, from the sutures in the skull to the spinal cord. Like a hydraulic system, there has to be an optimal circulation, which depends on constant mobility. When the membranes and lubricating liquids lose their freedom to glide freely, we hurt and symptoms start. It’s easy to imagine how even the slightest impact, lesion or distortion can stretch or strain this delicate system. Craniosacral therapy helps the body to re-establish an unobstructed wave, which is how symptoms disappear.
