The Craniosacral System


This system consists of membranous tissues and fluid that surround and protect our brain and spinal cord, and the bones they attach to. These membranes reach from the cranial bones, including those of the face and mouth all the way down to connect at the sacrum (tailbone). And they create spaces that allow for the passage of Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) throughout the brain and spinal cord. The health of these tissues are paramount in maintaining the function of the Central Nervous System (CNS). Our Central Nervous System governs over and responds to everything that happens in our body. It’s pretty easy to recognize then that the health of our Craniosacral System is paramount to our overall health. Craniosacral Therapy releases restrictions within and around the Craniosacral System to renew the flow of (CSF). CSF protects, nourishes, and cleans the CNS as well as boosting nerve conductivity. Craniosacral Therapy is often used as a preventative measure as it supports the body’s natural healing mechanisms, and helps to sustain a healthy immune system. It is very relaxing and therefore supports the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS), the system that controls our fight or flight responses. It is a great way to support overall health and well-being.
