Very few systems have such an impact on the human body as the craniosacral system does. It protects and nourishes the brain, and the spinal cord - and has an overall impact on the performance of the central nervous system.  That is why CranioSacral Therapy plays such an important role in healthcare practice. Developed by Dr. John Upledger American osteopath, after years of research and testing, it enables you to release fascial restrictions anywhere in the body that may be impinging the craniosacral system and every other system it interacts with.

An important function of the craniosacral system is the production, circulation and reabsorption of cerebrospinal fluid that maintains the physiological environment in which the brain and nervous system develop, live and function.  All the nerves in the body originate along the pathway of the dural membrane system.  Restrictions along the dura occurring from physical or emotional events may cause dysfunction and pain at some points in the body.  All the bones attached to the dural membrane move constantly as the cerebrospinal fluid is pumped in and out.  Each bone has its own movement.  When a particular bone moves off course or does not move at all it indicates there is a restriction in the  cerebrospinal fluid flow.  An imbalance in this system can adversely affect the development of the brain and spinal cord. This can result in sensory, motor and neurological dysfunction. The craniosacral system works in conjunction with other body systems such as the cardiovascular, respiratory, musculoskeletal, endocrine and nervous system.  All parts of the body are affected by the functioning of the craniosacral system.

CranioSacral Therapy is a subtle and profound healing form, which encourages the body’s natural mechanisms to improve the functioning of the brain and spinal cord, dissipates the effects of stress and enhances general health and resistance to disease.
