Alongside the cardio-vascular and respiratory rhythm in our body, there is a CranioSacral rhythm caused by the rhythmic production and re-absorption of the cerebral spinal fluid produced in the ventricles of our brain. This fluid bathes and nourishes the brain and the nervous system, washing away any debris accumulated in the cells of our body, therefore enhancing our general health.
CranioSacral therapy is a non invasive and safe method that encourages free movement of this essential cerebral spinal fluid along the spinal canal from top to bottom. CranioSacral therapy also assists in releasing any physical and emotional tension or traumas stored in our body. The therapist will apply a very light touch on parts of the fully clothed body, assisting it’s own natural self-correcting activities to maintain the body’s natural health and balance. The therapist simply removes obstacles, activates and empowers the body’s ability for self healing.
CranioSacral therapy is excellent for stress and anxiety; supports the immune system; reduces blood pressure; helps during pregnancy due to pelvic releases; beneficial for arthritis and swollen limbs by enhancing tissue and fluid motion; and is brilliant for post-traumatic situations, e.g. accidents, surgery, shock.
