Cranio-sacral work is a treatment modality that consciously brings into focus the subtle flow of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). This fluid surrounds the entire central nervous system creating an environment of near weightlessness for the brain. CSF is produced in the center of the brain and rhythmically flows outward. When the rhythm and flow is restricted, it inhibits the functioning of the nervous system, creating inefficiency in the muscles and organs, and disharmony between the body and the mind.
Chronic disharmony in this fluid flow can create symptoms like headaches, sleeplessness, emotional imbalance, physical pain, low energy, appetite imbalance, and more. The disease process advances if these initial patterns are not dealt with by a normal return to healthy physiology. Chronic symptoms wear down the body and mind over time and solidify into more permanent physical and emotional patterns.
Craniosacral therapy is an extremely gentle way to address the disease process. It can immediately interrupt initial symptoms as well as unwind chronic conditions. As time goes on, the unwinding process gains momentum yielding greater and greater results.
