Understanding Craniosacral Therapy

The cranium is the skull and the sacrum is the wide bone at the base of the spine, in the pelvic bowl. Craniosacral therapy helps these vital bone structures to align with each other. The movement that realigns these structures is the natural tidal movement of the craniosacral fluid (or CSF) up and down the spine and around the brain.

Craniosacral therapy is a physical treatment that is gentle yet amazingly effective. By supporting joints and tissues around the whole body, the natural body fluids can be encouraged to fill every cell and release tension.

A technique that I use frequently is called fascial unwinding. Fascia is a clear, tough, fibrous tissue that covers and connects all the muscles of the body. This fascia can become twisted, tight or dry. By allowing it to soften again, it can unwind and allow normal body function to be restored again. 

A session of craniosacral therapy can be quiet or even silent, for deep relaxation. At other times it may be helpful to use verbal dialogue to gain a deeper understanding of the processes at work during a treatment. Sometimes it’s OK to just chat about your day or your life and simply enjoy a nice treatment that makes you feel relaxed and cheerful, sleepy and much better than when you came in.
