Dysfunction of this system will have an impact on your energy and stress levels and may contribute to emotional problems and other symptoms.
Humanity is so fortunate that the craniosacral system was discovered by Dr John Upledger, D.O. and surgeon, in the 1960s when he was assisting at an operation to remove a calcified plaque from the membrane that surrounds the spinal cord of one of his patients.
The craniosacral system is the deepest in the body and nourishes the central nervous system: the brain, spinal cord and the beginning of the peripheral nerves.
When this system is compromised through injury or the daily activities of a stressful life, the symptoms can be unusual and far reaching. Unfortunately, in a lot of cases of unhealthy symptoms the craniosacral system is not addressed.
Here are some symptoms that can be related to dysfunction of the craniosacral system and may have positive clinical benefits with the use of this therapy:
- Low back pain
- Dental trauma
- Digestive problems
- Ear/Sinus infections
- Emotional problems/depression
- Endocrine disorders
- Eye problems
- Immune deficiencies
- Jaw pain
- Learning disabilities
- Neck pain
- Pain syndromes
- Personality changes/disorders
- Poor thoracic lymph drainage
- Reproductive problems
- Sacral/iliac issues
- Shoulder problems
- Urogental problems
If you are in pain, have persistent emotional or physical symptoms, or are stressed, then it is well worth having your craniosacral system checked out. Even with one session you are on your way to a healthier you.
Valee More has been practicing craniosacral therapy since 1998. In some cases clients have had relief from long standing pain just in one session even though the client has had many other bodywork sessions. She has also seen long-term sinusitis, headaches and fogginess disappear, improvement of digestive issues, emotional problems, relief of other symptoms and improved stress and energy levels.
