Normalizing the CS System
CranioSacral Therapy involves manipulating the craniosacral system, which includes the soft tissue and bones of the head (cranium), the spine down to its tail end (the sacral area), and the pelvis. Also manipulated are the membranes that surround these bones and the cerebrospinal fluid that bathes the brain and spinal cord. The touch used is so light is used that many patients don’t even notice it, most people report feeling profoundly relaxed after a treatment.
Craniosacral therapy is a carefully developed method of normalizing the function of the craniosacral system. The therapeutic method relies upon very gently applied hands-on pressure to various parts of the body with major focus on the head (cranium) and the lower end of the spine (sacro-coccygeal complex). The therapy makes use of the patientï¿½s natural self-correcting mechanisms, which are inherent within the CranioSacral System.
The therapist’s touch actually assists the patientï¿½s body in making these self-corrections. This fact makes the therapeutic approach almost totally risk free to the patient.
