CranioSacral Series: Part One

CranioSacral Therapy can be hard for people to understand.  Especially when you are trying to keep the explanation simple.  I have started this series to give you information on this modality and stories of success so that you are able to see the vast benefits that CranioSacral Therapy has to offer and in what ways it can help your life.   CranioSacral Therapy has its roots in Osteopathic Medicine, based on three common-sense principles.

The Body is a Unit  

Fascia is a perfect example.  It is a fibrous tissue that connects the entire body.  You can travel from the tips of your toes to the top of your head completely on the fascia.  Which is why a problem in one area of the body can affect a different area.

The Body is a Self-Correcting Mechanism

Your body does a great job of healing itself.  When you get a cut, a scab is produced to protect it.  If you break a bone, the bones will fuse back together.  There are times when the body needs help, but it is a beautifully complex system.

Structure and Function are Interrelated

The founder of Osteopathy, Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, said the body is like a machine.  Every part needs to be moving correctly.  If one piece is not functioning properly, it can produce changes in a different area.
