The craniosacral system is made up of cerebro spinal fluid and membranes that surround and protect the spinal cord and neck. It extends from the cranium bones which include bones of the skull, face, and mouth down to the tailbone area called the sacrum.
By releasing restrictions of the craniosacral system with a light touch, it helps improve the functioning of the central nervous system. Craniosacral works by assisting the bodys natural healing mechanisms. The gentle touch helps to release the blockages and stress on the central nervous system.
Imbalance in the craniosacral system can cause sensory motor and/or neurological disabilities. The development and the performance of the brain and spinal cord is vital.
The craniosacral system has a rhythm or pulse similar to the cardiovascular system. Monitoring the rhythm helps the practitioner pinpoint the source of obstruction or stress. Through light touch, the practitioner can assist the natural movement of the fluid to help the body self-correct.
Craniosacral helps bolster overall health and resistance to disease, is beneficial to those with head, neck, or back injuries, stress-related dysfunctions, TMJ, and sensory disorders.
