The lines of junction between the bones of the skull are known as cranial sutures. This is where the natural movement between the skull bones takes place. Sometimes a restriction can occur.
Using very gentle finger pressure and hand holds to the cranial sutures, the practitioner’s intent is to facilitate a release. That is when a restriction is unblocked and the bones are able to resume their natural movement pattern. This allows the subtle natural rhythms of the central nervous system to express themselves in a balanced fashion.
Cranial Therapy is useful in relieving stress and tension-related problems including migraine headaches, chronic fatigue, and temporomandibular joint dysfunction syndrome (TMJ).
A special thank you to Kim Grady of Butterflies Galore for graciously modeling for the Cranial Therapy photograph.
