Cranio Sacral Therapy
The cranium and sacral bone are, roughly speaking, the extremes of the Cranio-Sacral system. Between them lie the spine, spinal cord and the brain. C-S therapy works with the rhythm of the cerebral spinal fluid. This fluid nourishes the brain and spinal cord and has its own rhythmic motion like the heartbeat or breathing. The C-S rhythm is thus the third rhythm of the body. Normally this rhythm expands and contracts about 6 to 12 cycles a minute. All bones and tissues in the body move subtly on this rhythm. A C-S practitioner tunes into this rhythm to listen and connect to the body being treated, giving it the opportunity to tell its story. The body will indicate which places need attention and where restrictions are located. Restrictions within the body manifest in the form of tight muscles, twisted fascial holding and compressed nerves. During the treatment a light pressure is applied, with the hands, to optimize the functioning of the C-S system. The body is given the opportunity to set in motion its own corrective mechanism which will trigger the healing process.

Visceral Manipulation is focused on enhancing the function and mobility of an organ. It assumes that restrictions within the fascia (connective tissue) surrounding the organs and connecting other organs is primary in causing pains, discomfort and tensions in the musculo-skeletal system. Visceral Manipulation uses soft touch manipulations to mobilize an organ. We speak of “motility” when we examine the embryological (inherent) movement of an organ. And we speak of “mobility” when we examine how an organ moves in relation to its surrounding structures. Testing and treating mobility and motility are key in Visceral Manipulation and enhancing health. Restrictions in an organ will often not be felt in an organ itself but will more often show up as a pain in the muscles, nerves or bones: like a pain in the neck, shoulder, lower back etcetera. We call this a referred pain. Meaning that a congested liver, for example, can and very often will cause pain on the right side of the neck and right shoulder (and can even descend into the arm). Thus there are multiple connections between the organ system and the musculo-skeletal system. Restrictions within those different systems often form tension lines. It would explain why some people always have all their physical pains just on one side of the body. We believe that the cause of many of our symptoms and dis-comforts are originating from our organs affecting our well-being. Visceral Manipulation proves itself to be a very effective, non-invasive method to enhance health, overall well-being and treating a variety of symptoms. Feel free to ask your practitioner if your symptoms can be treated using Visceral Manipulation!
