is the Cranial Sacral System?
The membranes and
cerebrospinal fluid which form the fluid-filled sac around the core of
the nervous system make up the Cranial Sacral system. Cranial Sacral Therapy
is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the
function of a physiological body system.
This system surrounds, nourishes
and protects the brain and spinal cord. Like the pulse of the cardiovascular
system, the Cranial Sacral system has a rhythmic cycle
that can be felt throughout the body.
How Cranial Sacral
Using a touch generally
no heavier than the weight of a small coin, a skilled Cranial Sacral
Practitioners monitors this rhythm at key body areas to pinpoint the
source of an obstruction or stress.
Once a source has been
determined, they can assist the natural movement of the fluid and related
soft tissue to help the body self-correct.
This simple action is
often all it takes to remove a restriction and improve cerebral flow
and balance the energetic flow to the entire body.
Therapy is often combined with other complementary therapies
to help restore the body to it's optimum functioning level.
