Craniosacral Therapy was designed to adjust and regulate the fluctuation of the cerebrospinal fluid and spinal re-alignment caused by involuntary movement between the head and the sacrum.
Craniosacral Therapy is an ideal for people experiencing mood swings, anxiety, hyper anxiety, depressive, headaches and bruxism amongst other symptoms. These symptoms could have been related to an incident in one’s past or a problem in one’s present life such as relationship or work problems.
Tests to check the patient’s respirator flow, balance, dizziness and emotional stability are performed before osteopathy treatments begins.
An osteopath can treat these problems with Quiro massage rebalancing and relaxing the body. The quiro massage focuses on the spine starting from the nape of the neck to the hip bones.
The quiro massage is accompanied with mobilizations and manipulation with impulse. The lower back opened in flexion and the upper back opened in extensión. The neck maybe realigned according the he patient’s needs.
Special attention is paid to the head. The occipital area relaxed and stretched to make room for the flow of spinal fluid. Pressure is also applied in relation to the pateints pulse which in turn regulates the flow of spinal fluid into the heads fourth cavity and gives the patience a sense of calm.
In cases of bruxism the muscles in the jaw are stretched and the temples are relaxed.
The diaphragm is the body’s “holder” of anxiety and often we find in these cases the diaphragm blocked. Unblocking techniques are performed to the fascia improving not only the patient’s respiration but also the reducing anxiety.
Craniosacral Therapy treatment is a gentle treatment and pleasurable.
