Craniosacral Therapy is a technique that seeks to restore the natural rhythmic movement found between the bones of the skull. It does the same for the movements of the sacrum. The motion of cranial bones is closely connected to subtle movements that involve a network of interrelated tissues and fluids at the core of the body; including cerebrospinal fluid (the 'sap in the tree'), the central nervous system, the membranes that surround the central nervous system and the sacrum.
Over time our bodies become shaped and conditioned according to how we deal with any stresses or traumas. If overwhelming, they become locked in the body as sites of inertia - until such a time we access resources that allow them to be processed and released. These sites of inertia affect the natural rhythmical movements of the Breath of Life and hinder our ability for health to manifest at a cellular level. Common causes of inertia are physical injuries, emotional and psychological stresses, birth trauma and toxicity. The intention of treatment facilitates the expression of the Breath of Life and increases the body's own self-healing and self-regulating capabilities. This is done in a non-invasive way as the practitioner subtly and gently encourages the conditions that allow for the reemergence of primary respiratory motion.
