The CranioSacral System is intimately related to the nervous, musculoskeletal, vascular, lymphatic, endocrine and respiratory system. Just as abnormalities in the structure or function of any of these systems can influence the CranioSacral System, abnormalities in or injuries to the structure or function of the CranioSacral System can have profound and deleterious effects on all other systems and the development or function of the nervous system, especially the brain.
Children and Pregnancy
From postnatal to the teenaged years, children respond very favorably to CranioSacral Therapy. Because of a child’s still-developing physiology, the central nervous system is especially accepting of this effective therapy. Mothers-to-be and prenatal infants also respond favorably to CST. The central nervous system of an unborn child accepts this gentle therapy easily.
Emotions and trauma are stored in our tissues and organs. SomatoEmotional Release® is a therapeutic process designed to rid your mind and body of the residual effects of past injuries and negative experiences (trauma).
Visceral Manipulation as a whole-body therapy focuses on healthy functioning of our organs in relation to the musculoskeletal, nervous, circulatory, lymphatic and respiratory system. French Osteopath J. P. Barral found that 90% of all musculoskeletal problems have a visceral component. Over time a structural issue will start to affect the body’s organs, or it may be that an organ has been the primary culprit leading to compensatory changes.
Lymph Drainage Therapy(sm)
The proper function of the lymphatic system is critical to our body’s ability to drain stagnant fluids, detoxify, regenerate tissues, filter out toxins and foreign substances, and maintain a healthy immune system. Because this therapy enables practitioners to detect the specific rhythm, direction, depth and quality of lymphatic flow, therapists can achieve profound, more precise outcomes in shorter periods of time.
