The human body is able to function as a result of numerous complex systems that are part of our make up. The system that is relevant to craniosacral therapy is aptly named the ‘craniosacral system’ and it is composed primarily of membranes and cerebrospinal fluid, whose job it is to surround and cushion the brain and the spinal cord.

During a craniosacral therapy session your therapist will tune into this system by placing their hands on specific body points allowing them to then evaluate and enhance its functioning by using very light touches to the body.

The aim is that your practitioner works with the spine, the skull and its cranial structures and fascia in order to ease the restrictions of the nerve passages and stimulate the movement of cerebrospinal fluid through the spinal cord.
