The Craniosacral system consists of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. It extends from the bones of the skull and face to the tailbone. Because this vital system influences the brain and spinal cord, an imbalance or restriction here could cause various symptoms in the sensory, motor or nervous systems. Craniosacral Therapy utilizes light touch and offers a gentle method for detecting and correcting the negative effects of stress on the central nervous system, bringing about well-being and resistance to disease. Craniosacral Therapy has shown to be effective in alleviating the symptoms of a wide range of illnesses, pain and stress related issues.
Craniosacral Therapy using the Principles of Acupuncture
The energy and intention of Craniosacral Therapy are applied to the points and energy pathways of acupuncture. Applying principles of healing from these two systems provides deep core healing, positively influencing physical, emotional and spiritual health.
Myofascial Release is another aspect of Craniosacral Therapy which focuses on the connective tissue. It is a hands on whole body approach for evaluating and treating the physical being. Restrictions are released from the connective tissue by listening on a subtle level and applying gentle touch, resulting in pain relief and improved quantity and quality of movement and function.
