The human body is not originally patterned to handle the bulk of stresses and restlessness that modern living possesses. It was not designed to take in and ingest the toxic substances that are ever-present in the world today. This explains why so many people are developing diseases that are yet to be explained by modern science. When modern diseases are yet to be explained and managed with the appropriate treatment, the cranial sacral therapy offers relief to the overwhelming stresses and trauma that most people handle nowadays. The cranial sacral therapy taps into the body’s rhythmical movements and corresponding energies to understand the imbalances in the human health blueprint. Believing that such imbalances to health start at cellular levels, this form of therapy helps free and resolve trapped forces within the body to jumpstart healing and ensure positive responses to healing processes.
The main intention of cranial sacral therapy is to initiate the body’s self-healing processes in non-invasive ways. When orthodox treatment pounds the body with routine drugs, it facilitates the reemergence of respiratory motions to release the tensions embedded by daily stresses into the body. It offers support in delivering orders to jumpstart every living cell’s natural ability to heal. With the dynamic approach to treatment proposed by cranial sacral therapy, expressing full and balanced health will naturally follow. The observation of this therapy among natural swimmer has emphasized its beneficial effects in promoting better overall health and performance.
Cranial sacral therapy is done using soft hand touches making subtle rhythms that may palpate in the body. It basically uses light touch massages that establish cranial rhythmic impulses, which are expressed at an average rate of 8 to 12 cycles per minute. The tide of impulses suggested by this form of therapy is designed to produce rhythms with rhythms. This tide of rhythm reaches the membranes and fluids that surround and protect the brain. In a way, this form of therapy nourishes the brain and spinal cord to connect subtle movements to a network of interrelated tissues that can dampen the harmful effects of daily stresses and other environmental factors that compromise health.
Cranial sacral therapy simply helps restore balance in the environment and spinal chord. Referring to early science education, the brain as well as its components is the center of all biological processes. As you look back, brain fluids (hormones) orders and manages vital bodily processes, including self-healing. In this light, nourishing the brain can potentially alleviate a wide variety of dysfunctions, especially sports injuries that a natural swimmer may experience.
Cranial sacral therapy presents a holistic approach to promoting better health. When the brain and the mind is interconnected with bodily processes, initiating the delivery of order for self-healing, from the brain to the affected region of the body, is what this therapy is all about. However, this form of therapy does not hold all the answers to health conditions such as in cases of acute aneurysm or pre-existing bleeding disorder.
The effects of cranial sacral therapy vary from person to person. When it takes time for others to enjoy the benefits of this therapy, some may immediately see results. On the average, patients must keep regular therapy schedules in the course of several weeks to months.
Thanks to the early works of Drs. Sutherland and Upledger, the father of cranial sacral therapy, patients with chronic health conditions are presented with another promising solution to better health. Physiotherapists, osteopaths and massage therapists have already adapted the bodywork involved in this therapy. Its drug-free and non-invasive treatment approach makes the better choice for patients who wanted to wean off their long-term dependence on drug-based and other risky treatments.
