WHAT IS CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY?
Craniosacral Therapy is a light touch therapy that releases tension in the body, improves the functioning of the central nervous system and therefore helps to reduce pain, dysfunction, stress, and increases overall well being.
The craniosacral system is the soft tissue and fluid that protects, nourishes and cleanses the brain and spinal cord (the central nervous system). It is responsible for the production, reabsorbtion and circulation of craniosacral fluid. It is influenced by the nervous system, the muscoskeletal system, the respiratory system, the lymphatic system, the vascular system and the endocrine system. Tension or dysfunction in these systems may influence the craniosacral system, which in turn may affect the central nervous system.
HOW CAN CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY HELP ME?
CranioSacral Therapy can help everyone by enhancing his or her physical and emotional well being. This happens because stresses and restrictions on the craniosacral system that reduce its performance efficiency can be removed.
An imbalance or dysfunction in the craniosacral system can cause sensory, motor and/or neurological dysfunction. Specific problems, such as accidents, trauma and infections can be addressed. Where there is a restriction, the body is less able to detoxify itself. Gentle techniques to release such restrictions enhance the body’s ability to heal itself, and to attain its optimal balance at any given time.
This kind of preventative treatment can reduce healthcare costs, because we are taking a proactive approach to our health and health care needs.
