Is a gentle low-impact, nurturing approach to working with the nervous system, fascia-connective tissue, muscles and bones to release restriction and pain. This deep relaxation in our body creates a strong sense of well-being by reducing pain, creating more flexibility in our tissues and organs, and by boosting our immune system.
The Cranial Ebb and Flow
The cranial - sacral system is mainly the flow of cerebral spinal fluid from the head to the sacrum or tailbone. Once the fluids reach the sacrum they are moved back up to the brain and reabsorbed. This is called the cranial wave, the ebb and flow. It is repeated continuously through the day and night nurturing our brain, spine and nerves.
Our fascia is what holds us together and allows movement of muscles, organs and joints. It can become stuck and cause restrictions such as those listed below.
Muscles, ligament and bones
These are our supporting structures and our way of moving about in the world. These need to be as strong and flexible as possible in order for us to do the things we desire in our lives.
Nerves and Our Nervous System
This is our COMMUNICATION SYSTEM, it is how we know:
- What we are physically feeling
- Where we are in space
- How to communicate with our senses
- What pain we are feeling and where it is in our body
- and how to act on things
- as well as our internal systems communicating with each other
We use the cranial wave to assess for tissue/joint/muscle/organ restrictions. With extremely light touch we can feel where things are stuck. By easing the constriction in the area, things release and balance is restored. This allows for a healthy flow of nerve impulses, fluids, circulation, and energy between regions of the body.
As restrictions are released tissue will move to normal functioning. This will increases joint range of motion, reduces pain, improve digestion, strengthen your immune system, assists in emotional release, and improve our interoception.
This gives you a deep sense of relaxation and well-being.
CranioSacral Therapy is safe for adults, infants, children and seniors. It is effective in many situations:
