This therapy is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the function of a physiological body system called the Cranio Sacral system.
The Cranio Sacral system is comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid which form the fluid-filled sac around the core of the nervous system – surrounding, nourishing, and protecting the brain and spinal cord. Like the pulse of the cardiovascular system, the Cranio Sacral system has a rhythm that can be felt throughout the body.
Using a touch generally no heavier than the weight of a small coin, a skilled practitioner can monitor this rhythm at key body areas to pinpoint the source of an obstruction or stress. Once a source has been determined, they can assist the natural movement of the fluid and related soft tissue to help the body self-correct. This simple action is often all it takes to remove a restriction.
Its far reaching-effects enable Cranio Sacral Therapy to be useful for a wide scope of health problems, including:
Headache, migraine, irritable bowel syndrome, digestive problems, chronic back pain, depression, strokes, brain and spinal cord injuries, problems of the brain, soinal cord, and nervous system, multiple sclerosis, tinnitus, menstrual problems, TMJ dysfunctions, Arthritis, Chronic pain syndrome, dyslexia & Dyscalclia, Allergies, Neuralgia, Vertigo, high & low blood pressure.
