Purpose of craniosacral therapy
Craniosacral therapy intervenes on the craniosacral and connective tissue system of the body. The craniosacral system consists of the skull (‘cranium’), sacrum (‘sacrum’) and the cerebral and spinal membranes (‘dura’). The dura is part of the whole of connective tissue that forms an elastic network throughout the body.
It is essential that the connective tissue moves smoothly with all our movements. However, tensions and blockages may have arisen due to, for example, illness or trauma. This can manifest itself in, among other things, pain issues, intestinal problems, fatigue or emotional issues.
With gentle treatment techniques of CST, disturbances and stresses in the craniosacral and connective tissue system can be noticed and treated.
