Cranio-sacral therapy is a gentle, hands-on technique for releasing deep-seated pressures in the body, relieving pain and dysfunction, while also enhancing overall health and performance. A practitioner of cranio-sacral therapy effectively helps the body to unlock limitations that it hasn’t been able to resolve on its own. Rather than determining how these improvements should be incorporated, the practitioner depends on the body’s reaction to decide the best course of action. This gentle approach ensures that the procedure is both safe and successful.
Cranio-sacral therapy has been found to treat migraines, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, insomnia, sinus infections, neck pain, ear infections, mood disorders, scoliosis, and difficulties during pregnancy. This practice is responsible for improving the atmosphere in which the central nervous system operates. The central nervous system is made up of membranes and fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord, as well as the bones that are attached to them. As the practitioner applies pressure to these areas, any build-up of spinal fluid is released, causing a release of tension for the surrounding nerve endings.
This form of therapy has been around for a long time. It was first discovered and practiced in the mid-1800s by a doctor by the name of Dr. Andrew Taylor Still. The idea behind this form of treatment came from the notion that the body has a living element that does not “mix” with the rest of the body. It is a separate element that, once adjusted and properly aligned, can bring about self-healing and balance to your regulatory system.
This practice of therapy has seemingly too many health and physical benefits to let fall by the wayside. With such a broad array of benefits, it would be a shame not to give it a try. Though health is the focal point of this practice, it also provides a relaxing and comfortable method of healing. Most people prefer this mode of therapy over more invasive treatments because it is a more gentle approach.
