6 Ways CranioSacral Therapy Facilitates Brain Health

To complement the article “How CranioSacral Therapy May Contribute to Brain Health” in the September 2014 issue of MASSAGE Magazine. Summary: The author discusses the specific effects of CranioSacral Therapy on brain-related problems, including chronic pain; neurodegenerative disorders; issues related to inflammation; spinal column or nerve problems; and eye conditions.

A primary focus of CranioSacral Therapy is to gently lessen the body’s connective tissue strain and decrease meningeal stress. CranioSacral Therapy is based partly on the theory that certain light-touch manual techniques can help relieve cell stress and improve health by enhancing the form and balance of the connective tissue matrix, in particular connective tissue layers surrounding the brain and spinal cord.

Enhanced brain form enables brain cells to work at their optimal level, which may improve molecular production, movement, use and clearance throughout the brain, leading to enhanced brain function and improved brain health. Because an emphasis of CranioSacral Therapy is on facilitating correction of the whole-body connective tissue matrix, it can be used for a wide range of conditions, including:

1. Chronic pain.

2. Neurodegenerative disorders.

3. Brain issues related to inflammation.

4. Spinal column or nerve problems.

5. Autonomic nervous system disorders.

6. Eye problems.
