Craniosacral Therapy

The Craniosacral System is a physiological system that exists in humans and animals possessing a brain and spinal cord. Its name is derived from the bones involved: the cranium and the sacrum. The membranes surrounding the brain, the dural tube that runs down the spine, and the fluids within, are all part of the craniosacral system.

CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, non-invasive manipulative technique. Assessment is done by testing for movements in various parts of the system. Valuable information can be gained very quickly by palpating the Craniosacral motion for rate, amplitude, symmetry and quality. Often when movement testing is complete, the restricting obstacle has been removed and your system completes its self-correction. An imbalance in the Craniosacral System can adversely affect the development and function of the brain and spinal cord which can result in sensory, motor and intellectual dysfunction.

This therapy encourages your own natural mechanisms to improve the functioning of the brain and spinal cord, to dissipate the negative effects of stress, and to enhance your general health and resistance to disease. Some common health issues that respond favourably with Craniosacral Therapy are: head ache, migraines, visual disturbances, autism, dizziness, ear infection, dyslexia, ADHD, inflammatory conditions, and other misunderstood dysfunctions.

Infants and young children especially benefit as early therapy can potentially reduce central nervous system problems that could lead to developmental delays and many other health challenges. Craniosacral therapy for newborns is highly recommended - its safe, risk free and an excellent modality to clear any birth trauma and medications from the system. CST is also helpful in supporting pregnancies and preventing fetal entrapment as the pregnancy progresses.

Consider this excellent health enhancing modality even if "there's nothing wrong". A more highly functioning organism is desirable for anyone, whether aged or infant.
