Cranio-Sacral Treatment

Q: What is the cranio-sacral Unit?

It consists of the cranium, brain, spinal cord and the wedge-shaped sacrum bone at the end of the spine.  Also, it consists of the fascia that surrounds the cranium inside and outside, as well as the cranial nerves and blood vessels.  All of these structures work together to act as a single unit.

Q: What is the cranio-sacral rhythm?

The brain and sacrum are connected by the spinal cord.  The cerebral spinal fluid flows around the brain and then down around the spinal cord.  The sacrum slightly rocks, creating a wavelike motion in the fascia and causing the cerebral spinal fluid to flow back up to the bathe, protect and nourish the central nervous system.  The normal cranio-sacral rhythm is 6-12 cycles per minute.

Q: What is the cranio-sacral dysfunction?

It can result in various physical injuries, inflammation, infections, and structural imbalances.  Common imbalances are dental malocclusions, which causes TMJ and leg length discrepancies/pelvic rotation which causes SI Dysfunction.  Such problems alter the normal cranio-sacral rhythm which results in pain.

The Technique

The technique is a subtle manual therapy technique designed to detect imbalances in the cranio-sacral rhythm and then restores it to the bodies natural rhythm.
