The Craniosacral System contains the membrane and the liquid (liquor) which flows around the spinal cord. The system extends from the bones of the skull, face and mouth - the cranial part - until the sacrum and pelvis - the sacral part. The formation of the liquor is circular. A sensitive craniosacral therapist can feel a rythmic movement in different parts of the body.
The cranio sacral rythm influences the development and functionallity of the brain and spinal cord. Tense and a constriction inside the system can lead to sensorical, motorical and neurological symptoms.
Cranial osteopathy is a manual method to observe and treat the craniosacral system. During a treatment the therapist uses very light pressure (less than five gram) mainly in the area of the head to balance the system.
A successful treatment leads to deep relaxation and supports selforganising mechanisms of the body.
During the treatment the patient lies apparelled on a massage table. The duration is about 60 to 75 minutes.craniosacral osteopathy, temporale technique
