What is craniosacral therapy?

Craniosacral Therapy (CST), was created from a form of cranial osteopathy. CST examines membranes and the movement of fluids in and around the central nervous system. It helps relieves tension with a gentle and light touch to manipulate the joints in the cranium or skull, parts of the pelvis, and the spine to treat dysfunction. 

The focus of cranial sacral therapy is a gentle placement of hands to assist the release of the body’s connective tissue, or “fascia.” Fascia (Latin word for “band”) is a covering found throughout the body or craniosacral system including organs, muscles, nerves, glands, blood vessels, brain, and spinal cord. This covering forms a body-wide connective network and identified through palpation of a cranial rhythmic impulse (CRI) a fundamental clinical skill used in diagnosis and treatment methods.

 When restriction in the fascia impede this crucial flow, symptoms can develop. In this context, alterations can cause pain. I also use craniosacral on other areas of the body connected to major nerve plexuses that correlate with mental/emotional/physical development. 

About the CNS and the Craniosacral system

The brain and spinal cord are the two major components of the central nervous system (CNS) that require a carefully controlled physiological environment to develop and function efficiently and effectively. The craniosacral system is responsible for providing this environment. A well-nourished central nervous system (CNS) will function optimally, having all its structures in balance and order. An unbalanced central nervous system, however, increases the chance of developing pain and illness.

Once a craniosacral rhythm’s assessed and cranial rhythmic impulses are identified, I will then address any disruptions found in the circulation. When the membranes and fluids flow with a constant rhythm, the brain and spinal cord are lubricated with cerebrospinal fluid. The dural tube delivers nutrients to the central nervous system and circulates hormones, neurotransmitters, and immune cells. A well-nourished central nervous system with all of its structures will balance functions optimally.  By freeing the central nervous system of altered or restricted motion, you help it perform at its best. 

Craniosacral Therapy releases stress and fatigue from deep tensions allowing the entire body to relax and self-correct. It naturally strengthens your immune system, eliminates pain and stresses, and enhances your health and overall well-being.
