Benefits of Cranio-Sacral Therapy
Because it is a harmless method, CranioSacral Therapy (CST) benefits all types of people, from newborns to people with multifactorial conditions.
As the Cranio-Sacral System (SCS) directly affects the fascia and tissues, it is especially recommended for the Nervous, vascular, lymphatic, endocrine and respiratory systems. It also supports cases with temporomandibular joint syndrome (TMJ), which result in migraines, neck pain, loss of balance and traumatic processes that the body has been unable to dissipate on its own. Its use is also recommended in people who do not have any condition, “healthy people.”
By moving the sphenobasilar synchondrosis (SBS) we can help to prevent degenerative diseases, as well as help repair the Central Nervous System (CNS). This also stimulates the pineal gland, which helps us produce more melatonin, thus improving any sleep disorders.
The constant tension of the masseter muscle and other ligaments affect the chewing system, and may cause tension cephalgia, cervical problems, earache and jaw pain.
By releasing the hyoid bone, we can improve any deficient swallowing and phonation processes in the lower jaw. This is also involved in the unblocking of emotional and oral expression.
This muscle is key for an optimal breathing process; it also directly massages the Lymph System, and it helps push the lymph into the venous circulation.
Is a structure of connective tissue that enables the small movements of organs, viscera and meninges. Any blockage at fascia level can affect the circulation of blood and lymph.
Muscular tension is one of the causes of pain in any part of the back. By relaxing the muscles, and also the organs and viscera, we can help decrease the pain.
Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF)
When the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flows well, it compensates the changes in the volume of intracranial liquid, therefore maintaining constant pressure. In some diseases, these processes are not carried out properly.
