Just inside the bony cranium we all have billions of star-shaped cells in our brain. Brain stars are part of a family of cells called “glia.” Glial cells are major regulators of nervous system development, structure and function. They are involved in all aspects of nervous system health and pathology. Glia and neurons create our inner universe of sensation, perception, memory and action. Reaching inward … we can gently touch them.

How do craniosacral therapy (CST) techniques reach into the brain or spinal cord?

Is there a biomechanical pathway through which CST corrective techniques are transmitted from a practitioner’s hands into the depths of the central nervous system (CNS)?

If so, what cells form this corrective pathway, what do they do, and how do they help CNS healing and function?

The answer to all of these questions may reside in glia.

The craniosacral system connects directly to the glial cell matrix of the brain and spinal cord.  This connection is a powerful route by which you can use CranioSacral Therapy glial technique to improve nervous system structure, function, healing and health.

Glial cells form an interconnected matrix throughout the entire central nervous system that is fused to the craniosacral system. Tad provides a model in which this interconnection helps to explain how craniosacral therapy reaches into the central nervous system to facilitate improved health and function.

Brain Stars shines a new light on craniosacral therapy and the central nervous system.



Eyes, retinal glia, optic tract.
Schwann cells, myelin sheath, axon pathways, neuromuscular junction.
Sensory system satellite glia (trigeminal ganglia, dorsal root ganglia), peripheral to central inflammatory cascade.
Autonomic Nervous System satellite glia (sympathetic, parasympathetic and enteric divisions), monitoring the stress response.
Gut-Endothelial barrier, Gut-Vascular barrier, Hepatic Portal System.
The peripheral and central extracellular matrix as a medium to address global and local patterns of health and distress.
Glial information is very important to understanding the central nervous system and it's directly interconnected in how CST creates change
