The craniosacral system consists of the membranes that enclose the brain and spinal cord (meninges), the enclosed cerebrospinal fluid, the physiological structures that control fluid input and outflow, and the related bones. Imbalances in the craniosacral system can trigger a host of neurological disorders and compromise the performance of nearly every other system in the body.
Craniosacral therapy uses a light-touch approach to evaluate and release any restrictions in the craniosacral system, encouraging the body’s own natural healing capabilities to improve central nervous system function and maximize overall health. This gentle, hands on therapy is beneficial in bolstering resistance to disease, making it an ideal modality for preventative health care.
Craniosacral therapy is often helpful for a wide variety of conditions, including:
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Cerebral Palsy
- Learning disabilities
- Ear infections
- Sinus infections
- Motor coordination problems
- Chronic Fatigue
- Chronic Pain
- Traumatic brain injury
- Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)
- Spinal cord injuries
