The craniosacral system is composed of the tough membrane and fluid that encase your central nervous system–the brain and spinal cord. In Craniosacral Therapy, the therapist works with the bones of the skull to relieve tensions in this membrane. This relieves pressure on the brain, the cranial nerves, the spine, and the spinal nerves that enervate the whole body. It also improves the flow of cerebrospinal fluid, the fluid that brings nutrients and carries away waste for the the central nervous system. Craniosacral Therapy can greatly alleviate chronic headaches, backaches, emotional difficulties, TMJ syndrome, and fatigue. It has also been effectively used to improve symptoms of autism, post-traumatic stress disorder, and brain and spinal cord injuries. This therapy is especially potent because it treats the core of your nervous system (the central nervous system) as well as the core of your structure (the spine and skull).
