What is Craniosacral Therapy?

Besides the physiological rhythm of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, the human body has the so-called


which directly affects several systems and body functions.

Although this rhythm is less manifest than the above mentioned ones, it can be felt with the hands; unlike the other two, it can be assessed and treated through touch.

This system is so important that imbalances in it may lead to a troublesome development of the brain and the spinal cord, thus generating sensory, motor, or neurological problems.

The brain and the spinal cord are lined with protective membranes which constitute a single thick layer, under which the cerebrospinal fluid flows.

This fluid is released and reabsorbed inside the cranium, thus creating a rhythm that is echoed all over the body as a very light movement, both in the cranial bones and all along the spine up to the sacrum, and in peripheral areas of the body by means of the connective fascia.
