CranioSacral Therapy $85.00

We are all familiar with the cardiovascular and respiratory rhythms. Like them, another body rhythm - the CranioSacral system, somewhat like a semi-closed hydraulic system, operating between the cranium (bones of the skull and sacrum (base of the spine) - influences many body functions. First identified in 1970 by Osteopath John Upledger, D.O.: the CranioSacral rhythm is a regular pulsation of cerebrospinal fluid at the rate of 6 to 12 cycles per minute.

The CranioSacral system is the primary system of the body because the health and well being of this system determines the functioning of all others. The brain and spinal cord need to function optimally to ensure the health of the rest of the body. The cerebrospinal fluid (CSC) is contained within the membranes enveloping the cranium, spine and sacrum. The CSC is filtered from the blood to bathe and protect the brain and spinal cord, then returned again to the blood, making a regularly cycling feedback loop. According to Dr. Upledger's theory, disturbances in the crania sacral rhythm can indicate dysfunction in the body. This rhythm may be monitored, just as the pulse may be monitored by a trained medical technician. The skull bones are joined by soft tissue, (sutures), and these are subject to internal pressure changes capable of producing small angular motions or "strain patterns" across the cranium.

The mechanical displacement is noticeable and measurable. The easiest places to monitor the rhythm are on the bones of the skull, sacrum and coccyx (tailbone). CranioSacral therapy "improves the functioning of the nervous system by releasing the brain and spinal cord using the skull and sacrum as hand holds." Dr. Upledger developed an ultra light touch technique for restoring the CranioSacral rhythm, applying pressure no heavier than a nickel.

WHAT IS IT - An imbalance in this system can adversely affect the development of the brain and spinal cord, which can result in sensory, motor and neurological dysfunction. The CranioSacral system is a physiological system that exists in all humans. Its formation begins in the womb and its function continues until death. The positive effect of CranioSacral Therapy relies to a large extent upon the client's natural self-corrective physiological activities. The therapist's light, hands-on approach assists the hydraulic forces inherent in the CranioSacral system to improve the body's internal environment. CranioSacral Therapy is used to locate and solve problems. It encourages your own natural mechanisms to improve the functioning of your brain and spinal cord, to dissipate the negative effects of stress, and to enhance your general health and resistance to disease. Clinical work with the CranioSacral rhythm has led to the development of a light-touch manipulative therapy that has been effective in treating poorly understood dysfunction such as chronic pain, lowered vitality and recurring infections.
