There is a tremendous amount of stress surrounding us these days, and we frequently find ourselves looking for relief. There is a longing to feel healed and whole, free from chronic pain, to let go of emotional trauma, or maybe just feel a little younger. There is a way to tap into your own body to allow you to heal from all types of trauma and this is the heart of CranioSacral Therapy.
Trauma, stress and injury are all essentially the same thing when it comes to our body. They all inhibit the body’s brilliant ability to self heal. Every cell, tissue and organ in our body needs to be able to move freely in order to function correctly. With physical and emotional trauma, stress adhesions and structural restrictions can develop. This increasingly puts stress on the adjacent structures leading to restricted movement and taxed the body’s ability to self-correct and self heal.
The Craniosacral system involves the cranium (head) including the cranial bones, the brain and its structures, the cerebral spinal fluid (CS fluid), the spine and the sacrum (all the way to the tailbone). This system is the first system to develop in the embryo stage as early as 6 weeks gestation. This system speaks directly to the autonomic nervous system where rest and repair is to take place.
Your therapist skillfully and intuitively palpates specific areas, especially areas of the head, spine and body. Your practitioner's role is not to forcibly correct the body but rather to encourage and hold it so it can correct itself. Buy using just 5 grams of pressure (the weight of a nickel on your finger) on an area of stress or trauma, craniosacral therapy allows your body to soften, thereby releasing adhesions, and enabling your body to self correct.
