What is Cranial Sacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy is a light touch modality, that can create dramatic improvements in your life. It releases tension deep in the body to relieve pain and disfunction and improve whole body health and performance. Few body structures have more influence over your health and well-being than your central nervous system and few body systems have more impact on your central nervous system then the craniosacral system

Why Do We Work On the Head

Every day your body endures stresses and strains that it must work to compensate for. These changes often cause body tissues to tighten and distort. These distortions can then cause tension to form around the brain and spinal cord resulting in restrictions any where in the body. By releasing the tensions of the tissues  we can reduce the effect of trauma and strain

The Importance of Hydration

The cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is a clear, colorless fluid that is produced in the ventricles of the brain and acts as a cushion or barrier for the brain and spinal chord. The fluid performs like a hydraulic system, bringing nutrients into the system, while removing waste and debris. CranialSacral Therapy works very closely with the CSF, by assessing it's flow through inter-cranial membranes, releasing adhesions and congestion, and thereby improving the environment of the brain and CNS.

Fascia

Fascial is a network of thin water filled layers of connective tissue. It joins our head to our feet and everything in-between much like a spiders web. It is said that it holds consciousness.  In addition to the dura matter which surrounds the brain and spinal cord, fascia is imperative to release for full body recovery.
