CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands on technique of working with the dura mater, which is the thick connective tissue that lines the inside of the skull and spinal column. This tissue is essentially the sack that contains the cerebral spinal fluid which supports your brain and spinal cord. Simply put, the craniosacral system is the home of your central nervous system.
Tension in this system can contribute to both physical and cognitive dysfunction as it creates strain on the brain and spinal nerves and can be the result of physical injury, concussion, traumatic birthing process for either mother or child, emotional stress and PTSD. 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).
