CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY

 

Craniosacral Therapy works on the tissue that houses and attaches to the dural tube in your spine and the ventricles in your brain. Your cerebral spinal fluid continually moves in a “wave like” motion but when there are areas of restriction, this movement is limited and restricted. By releasing your connective tissue (fascia), restrictions are released and movement can return.

 

Fascia is a very tough connective tissue. It connects your entire body like a spider web or the "internet" of your body. It is very strong and can hold up to 2000 lbs. tensile strength per square inch.

 

Most of us develop restrictions when we injure ourselves or get a surge of epinephrine. Imagine that you are driving your car and almost have an accident. Your Sympathetic Nervous System becomes stimulated and your adrenal glands excrete Epinephrine. This is your body’s way of protecting itself. This results in a “Fight or Flight” response. When you stop the car and try to get out, your knees are shaking. They are shaking because they are discharging this sudden energy that has surged through you because your Parasympathetic Nervous System releases other catecholamines to counteract the Epinephrine. If you do not release the energy and tension, it becomes stored in your fascia or your connective tissue.

 

Craniosacral Therapy relaxes and releases the tension in the fascia. There are a few places in our body where horizontal restrictions are most common. They are the pelvic floor, respiratory diaphragm, thoracic outlet, hyoid bone release and several places on your skull.

 

After releases have been obtained, then you are put in a “still point.” This is a gentle technique to stop the wave of cerebral spinal fluid so that when it restarts, it is more equal, stronger, and rhythmic.

 

This procedure is done with clothing on but socks, shoes, and jewelry off. It is not painful and is very deeply relaxing. Craniosacral therapy relieves restrictions in layers, like peeling away layers of an onion. With subsequent treatments, the releasing and relaxing goes deeper and deeper. This therapy relaxes every part of your body as well as stimulates your immune system.
