Craniosacral therapy (сranium (lat.) – “skull”, sacrum (lat.) – “sacrum”) is one of the types of sections of osteopathy that effects the entire body through work on the structures of the head (bones of the skull, brain shells) and the sacrum. It is very similar to a light massage for the patient, but the method of exposure to the hands of the doctor is completely different.

Many believe that back pain can be eliminated only through a rather strong and rough impact on the bones (reposition), such procedures are accompanied by unpleasant and sometimes painful sensations. Craniosacral therapy is the complete opposite of this method.

Craniosacral osteopathy appeared at the beginning of the 20th century thanks to research by the American osteopath Sutherland (Sutherlend), who discovered the interconnected oscillatory movements of the cranial bones transmitted to the sacral bone through the hard shell of the spinal cord.

Craniosacral therapy has become very widespread throughout the world and as an independent method of treatment. This is due to the unique combination of efficacy, safety and surprising softness of the treatment.

How does a session of craniosacral therapy (cranial osteopathy) take place?

Craniosacral therapy involves the use of multiple impact techniques. The main one is unfolding (from the English. “Unfold”). The doctor finds too “loaded” (spasmodic) tissues and “unwraps” them in a free direction with the help of an impact with his hands, relaxing the muscles and tissues of the patient’s body. Thus, they acquire their natural physiological mobility, and the rhythm of contractions of the craniosacral system is restored.

Craniosacral therapy has a very gentle and careful effect on the entire nervous system. Rough impact is not acceptable and not acceptable here. Soft methods used in craniosacral therapy, normalize the blood supply to the brain and spinal cord, eliminate disorders in the joints of the spine, regulate the tension of the protective membranes of the brain, normalize the movement of the cerebrospinal fluid. All this leads to the normalization of the nervous system of the person as a whole.

A therapy session takes from 30 minutes to 45 minutes. As a result, the patient gains lightness of body, vigor and feels “reborn.” This is the first sign of the beginning of recovery. Of course, it’s impossible to get rid of diseases in one session. You will gradually notice more and more changes for the better.

Such sessions will be useful not only to patients, but also to healthy people. They are an excellent prevention that increases the body’s resistance to diseases, keeps it in good shape, improves the psycho-emotional background and normalizes the work of the nervous system.
