What is Cranio-Sacral Reflexology?
The term Cranio-Sacral Reflexology is a fairly new concept and is a postgraduate area of study in Reflexology. The concept Cranio-Sacral has however been used and understood for a long time as this name was given to the approach to osteopathy developed by Dr W G Sutherland some 100 years ago. Dr Martine Faure Alderson has during her long and distinguished career developed and fused new discoveries in cranial osteopathy with reflexology and superb results have emerged through its formal use. Dr Faure Alderson has named the combination Cranio-Sacral Reflexology.
Cranio-Sacral Rhytmic Impulse
At the core of our being is a fundamental life force, a profound energy which is the basis of our existence, creating and maintain our life. This life force is expressed in the physical body as a vitality spreading through every cell, every tissue, every part of the body. This vitality is expressed as a symmetric and rhytmic motion of impulses, expanding and contracting in a wave and tide like manner. The rhytmic impulses of energy - the primary expression of the life force within us - originate within the brain and spinal cord and the fluid that surrounds them. The cycle manifests as the cranial rhytmic impulse and all parts of the body are involved in the this process.
What can the trained Cranio-Sacral Reflexologist achieve?
The bones in the skull permit some slight motion and any restriction to this normal motion due to injury, trauma or disease could affect a person's health negatively. The cranial osteopath works gently with the bones in the skull and sacrum and a treatment in the skull transmits stimuli to other parts of the body via cerebro spinal fluid 'impulses' conveyed through the cranio-sacral system. The trained cranio-sacral reflexologist can achieve the same results by treating the bones of the feet, where the skull and sacrum are reflected at certain specific points. Assessment and treatment on the feet relate to the same cerebro spinal fluid impulses. The body's inner health is perceived through the impulses detected via the feet. Areas of congestion and restriction in function, or any part of the body are felt as an imbalance in the motion of the impulses. The cranio-sacral reflexologist works to eliminate the underlying source of any dysfunction through reflexology and cranio-sacral techniques, restoring health and eliminating the symptoms and this is at all level: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
