The Cranial-Therapy developed out of the Osteopathy to an own field of activity. It is one of the most gentle and in depth going alternative therapies around.
The main component of the Cranial-Therapy is its techniques on the cerebrospinal fluid system that protects our nerval system. Through gently work on the spine and the skull and its cranial sutures, diaphragms, and fascia a deep relaxation is achieved. In this way, the restrictions of nerve passages are eased, the movement of cerebrospinal fluid through the spinal cord is optimized, and misaligned bones are restored to their proper position.
The Cranial-Therapy is a very good method, to unlock emotional and/or physical traumatic experiences in a very gentile way, so that the body has time to release the overload-energy captured in the nerve-system. The page Healing Trauma gives a good insight to how it is practiced.
