What is Craniosacral Therapy?
Craniosacral therapy is an art and science to reduce stress and tension in the meningeal membrane of the brain and various fascial connections to improve the function of the craniosacral system. The craniosacral system is the system responsible for the circulation of cerebrospinal fluid.
Good health of the craniosacral system is important because it surrounds and protects the brain and spinal cord area. This therapy is used to treat chronic headaches, ear infections, jaws, strokes, and other brain and spinal related diseases.

How to practice?
When the facial bones, head, and spinal cord and membranes under the skull are manipulated, blockages that prevent free movement of cerebrospinal fluid are removed and balance in the energy field is created.
This helps strengthen the brain and spinal cord which leads to overall good health. Because this therapy involves fine manipulation of the spine and skull area, this therapy is only used by experts such as chiropractors, osteopaths and/or acupuncturists.
How it works
A gentle and practical method for dealing with health problems that affect the craniosacral system, craniosacral therapy has proven results. When the bones around the brain are slowly manipulated, the flow of fluid becomes clearer and without interference.
The cerebrospinal fluid system and membrane tissue from one end of the spinal cord to the other and have a very fragile balance.
Practitioners of this therapy are required to apply only very gentle pressure equivalent to 5 milligrams or the weight of nickel coins to the affected area to release the pressure into the craniosacral region. Craniosacral therapy has been shown to be beneficial in conditions such as migraine, autism, colic, and childbirth.
