The craniosacral system lies deep within the body, surrounding and protecting the brain and spinal cord.
Could any job be more important?
A dense membrane, the dura mater, envelops the central nervous system. It is anchored with attachments to bones in the skull and vertebral column all the way down to the sacrum at the base of the spine. Hence the name craniosacral.
Falls, posture, surgery and accidents can all impact the tension in the dura mater, which then impacts the brain (encompassed within this membrane) and the peripheral nerves (exit through the dura mater to innervate organs and muscles, amongst other structures).
Craniosacral therapy gently mobilizes the dura mater, reducing restrictions in order to enhance the functioning of the central nervous system.
This is a gentle yet very deep treatment.
Craniosacral therapy is effective in getting to the root of many chronic problems ranging from pain to digestive issues to recovery from injury.
