1. Insights into this therapy
The craniosacral therapy is a gentle manual therapy of the entire body. Skull, spine and the sacrum are treated with local emphasis. These structures, so to speak form the centre of the central nervous system. The spinal cord, the liquor of the brain surrounded by the meninges are parts of the central nervous system.
Skull, spine, sacrum and the central nervous system are called the Craniosacral System. Within the system, that means in the brain, liquor is rhythmically released, which moves as a pressure wave from the brain around the spinalcord down to the sacrum and the way back.
This rhythm operates independently from respiration and heartbeat. The trained craniosacral therapist senses it with his hands, examines and treats it. The mobility and functioning of the craniosacral system in connection with the other structures can be diminished by deseases of the muscles, connective tissue or metabolism, by inflammations, accidents etc.
