Cranio-sacral from latin:
In cranio-sacral therapy we give attention to the rhythm of the cerebro-spinal fluid. It moves in a free, rhythmic movement between skull and brain and further on the vertebral canal down till the sacrum. This movement is also called the "cranial wave".
The cranio-sacral system has a connection to the whole body. An dysfunction
within this system can have negative impact on organs, muscles, bones
as well as on the nervous, vascular or endocrine systems. Dysfunctions
can be palpated/sensed and often balanced through very subtle pressure
at the skull or the pelvis.
In general, cranio-sacral therapy strengthens our vital functions and brings us to a state of balance. It is often helpful as a preventative measure to protect from migraines or tinnitus and is also used when having problems with jaw joint, back, knees or others.
I incorporate elements of Hugh Milne’s approach to cranio-sacral therapy in my individual sessions.
