CO Cranial Osteopathy
The Craniosacral System
This is a semi-closed hydraulic system in which CSF (Cerebrospinal Fluid) circulates. As a result of a filling and contraction/emptying mechanism, CSF causes flexion and extension in the entire body that can be detected using manual palpation.
The design of this system guarantees the integrity of the CNS (Central Nervous System) under normal conditions, though certain pathological conditions can alter this system, resulting in a lack of balance and health in an individual.
We use a light manual palpation technique to detect and correct imbalances in the Craniosacral System by assessing the quality of its rhythm. This rhythm can be felt the way we feel the heart rate or breathing. However, what makes Craniosacral Rhythm unique is that it allows us to both assess as well as correct using palpation.
Indications for Cranial Osteopathy
Dysfunctions in the CNS, PNS and ANS that can cause circulatory and hormonal alterations, distress of the organs and senses, neuralgia, cephalea, migraines, arthralgia, insomnia, lack of concentration, depression, psychosomatic distress and other disorders.
