Cranial Osteopathy

 

Cranio Sacral system consists of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds and protect the brain and spinal cord. It extends from the occipital bone of the scull (the cranium), down into the sacrum.

Cranial Osteopathy is a gentle but effective clinical approach that can be used in acutely painful or delicate conditions for people of all ages, from newborn babies to the elderly. The osteopathic practitioner uses a light touch, to assess and treats restrictions or imbalances (lesions) within the cranium (scull). D.O.M.P’s develop specific palpation skills to feel the rhythm of the cerebrospinal fluid called “the primary respiratory mechanism”.  Its action is part of normal physiology of the living human body. The rhythm is palpable in the cranium and throughout the body, but it is not a wave that travels from head to foot. It has 2 alternative phases, referred to as the inhalation and exhalation phases. There are 5 phenomena’s that function together and they form structure-function relationship between the central nervous system and its container (the body and the brain).
It deals with the release of restrictions (cranial lesions) and osseous or membranous tensions, within the scull and as a result throughout the body. It is used to treat a wide range of conditions.
