Craniosacral Therapy is gentle, relaxing, and uses a light touch. It
involves palpating and assisting the movement of bones as cerebro-spinal
fluid (CSF) is pumped through the brain and the spinal cord. The flow
of CSF produces movement of the bones of the head, which causes movement
of the vertebrae of the spine, which moves the sacrum and pelvis, which
causes movement in the legs. Thus, this motion, called the Craniosacral
Rhythm (CSR) can be felt throughout the body. By feeling this motion
and gently assisting it, the skeletal system (including the bones of the
head) comfortably realign, muscle tension releases and emotional
disturbances find relief.
An additional focus and technique is Craniosacral Unwinding. For
Unwinding, the therapist gently follows the client’s movement as
different body parts reposition and change their postural alignment.
During Unwinding, the client’s body moves into postures it was in during
certain injuries, such as sports injuries or car accidents. This allows
the body memory of the trauma to surface, be processed and released,
resulting in decreased pain and greater mobility.
