Imagine feeling a gentle wave wash over your body. Your breathing changes, and the pain melts away. The wave – a continuous flow of fluid connects your body, no beginning, no end. Bringing a sense of calm, peace and the pain has gone.
What are 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 profound 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 are 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.
As I have previously discussed, 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 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.
