CranioSacral Therapy is a light-touch approach that can create dramatic improvements in your life. It releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. Few body structures have more influence over your health and well-being than your central nervous system. Few body systems have more impact on your central nervous system than the CranioSacral system – the soft tissues and fluid that protect your brain and spinal cord.
Every day you endure stresses and strains while your body absorbs them. Your body can only handle so much tension before the tissues begin to tighten and potentially affect the brain and spinal cord. Unfortunately, this can compromise the function of the central nervous system and the performance of nearly every other system in your body.
CranioSacral Therapy releases those tensions to allow the entire body to relax and self-correct. Using a gentle touch, starting with about the weight of a nickel, practitioners evaluate your internal environment. Then they use distinctive light-touch techniques to release any restrictions they find. By freeing the central nervous system to perform at its best, CranioSacral Therapy naturally eliminates pain and stress, strengthens your resistance to disease, and enhances your health and well-being. Because it’s so gentle, CranioSacral Therapy can be effective for all ages, from newborns to elders.
The highly specialized form of cranial therapy is designed for and may be beneficial for individuals recovering from a stroke, neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, and those who have experienced any type of fall, accident, or traumatic brain injury.
ASuRA regulates both the structure and flow of glial cells in the brain. These cells are non-neuronal cells that maintain homeostasis, form myelin and provide support for neurons in the brain and the peripheral nervous system.
ASuRA can assist with the resolution of astroglial scarring that occurs with trauma. This, in turn, allows neural signaling to occur much more efficiently. Imagine a dam in the middle of the river. This prevents the river from flowing in much the same way that the scar prevents signaling in the brain.
