Craniosacral Therapy believes that everyone is born with an underlying infinite order of intelligence or ‘vital force’ energy (often referred to as ‘chi’ in Chinese Medicine.) This is the same intelligence that keeps your heart beating and runs your body. This constant undetectable intelligence is carried by the nervous system to every cell in your body supplying it with all the information it needs to function as planned, every day.
Craniosacral Therapists call this innate Intelligence. This is the intelligence that heals the body and is always with you. If every cell in your body is functioning at 100% then you will have optimal health. Unfortunately structural imbalances and spinal misalignments can interfere with the transmission of this innate intelligence, causing imbalance and altered cell formation that in time can create many health problems and disease.
The aim of Craniosacral Therapy is to correct structural imbalances in the human body allowing the innate intelligence to go where it needs to go and to restore blocked circulation, alleviate any nerve impingement and thus allowing dysfunctional cells to heal themselves. The power that made your body can heal your body. Craniosacral Therapy helps to turn on your healing power and creates optimal health.
Craniosacral Therapy focuses on the use of ‘Light-touch’ therapies to align the structural integrity of the body that is the root cause of many structural and spinal imbalances. The Craniosacral Therapist therefore may employ a number of techniques from different healing modalities to assist in rebalancing the integrity of the body. For example, Myofascial Release Therapy.
