All the nerves in the body including the brain and spinal cord have a coating surrounding them. Trauma to the head or spinal column can cause pressure or pulling of the coating causing the nervous system not to function.
It can also restrict the flow of spinal fluid which provides the brain and nerves with the nutrients they need to function. A block in this flow can cause severe neurological problems. This trauma can be relieved with cranial or upper cervical procedures that release the tension in the meninges thus restoring the neurological function.
All the separate bones that make up the skull are mobile. Cranial therapy is a technique using this premise focusing on the Occipital-spenoid connection and the Dura matter. As the skull changes so does the Dura matter inside.
This revolutionary treatment is easy and gentle. It stimulates and relaxes the body's muscles and may unlock the source of pain coming from the cranial pressure.
Treatments are approximately two to three minutes long. The variety of disorders for which cranial therapy has been found to be helpful includes:
- Structural Disorders: Sciatica, low back pain, neck pain and shoulder pain/restrictions and scoliosis.
- Extremity Disorders: Sports injuries and overuse syndromes involving the knees, elbows and ankles, feet and hands.
- Systemic Disorders: Migraine headaches, asthma, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, colitis, tinnitus, arthritis, sleep apnea, anxiety and depression.
- Children’s Disorders: Cerebral palsy, ADD, ADHD, earache.
