Cranial Sacral Therapy
Cranial Sacral Therapy teaches that a third circulatory system is created in the body from the cerebral spinal fluid in addition to the blood and lymphatic fluid. This fluid is made in the brain, travels through the spinal cord and permeates the body in the space made between the muscle and connective tissue layer, called the myofascial space.
The movement of this fluid creates a discreet pulse, or cranial sacral rhythm, which can be palpated (detected) by a skilled practitioner.
The movement of this fluid through the body also causes subtle movement of the cranial bones in the head. The practitioner feels for the movement of the cranial bones as well as the cranial sacral pulse in the body and makes adjustments to these rhythms as needed to re-establish the flow of the cranial sacral fluid. This allows tissues to heal, and the body to be in a dynamic state of balance.
Cranial Sacral Therapy can be used to treat trauma, injury, spinal or muscular disorders, headaches, jaw or sinus problems, and corrects equilibrium imbalances.
