What is the Wave and the Cranial Sacral System?

The Cranial Sacral system is made up of membranes and fluid that surround, protect and nourish the brain and spinal cord. By specifically addressing this system the body experiences a deep sense of relaxation which is often necessary for physical healing. The cranial treatment directly affects the nervous system and the dura. The cerebral spinal fluid supplies nutrients washing over facilitating healing and soothing of the nerves and connective tissue – Fascia. The cranial system is interwoven into the Fascial system and thus affects the entire body.

Any trauma to the body often can cause the fascia surrounding the spinal cord and the brain to restrict reduce or hinder the flow of cerebrospinal fluid that normally nourishes heals and supports the spinal cord. Cranial therapy reduces these blockages or restrictions to restore optimal normal function.

The extremely light manipulation also makes CranioSacral Therapy a safe treatment method for children or infants who have experienced any early stressors including but not limited to birth trauma. By releasing restrictions around the central nervous system early in life it will likely help prevent future difficulties such as learning disabilities or hyperactivity.

It is also a profoundly effective technique for seniors or anybody suffering from fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue.

“As a physician, I can undertand the approach she uses in her treatments, but even with my medical training, I was skeptical that a skilled laying on of hands could make such a difference… until I had experienced it for myself. Part of the healing that Simone accomplishes is also due to her holistic approach to her clients’ lifetyles, stress management and self-care. Truly the whole package.
