History of
CranioSacral Therapy
CranioSacral Therapy has been used successfully in the treatment of ADD & ADHD since 1975. Clinical experience suggests that the primary factor in many of these cases may be that multiple sites and integrated pathways within the brain are performing at abnormally high (hyperactive) and/or low (hypoactive) levels, which may be caused by restrictions to fluid exchange in the Brain.  It is essential for fluids to move in an unrestricted manner throughout the brain for it to perform optimally. Fluids (blood and cerebrospinal fluid) transport the vital and essential elements required by the cells, while also removing harmful waste products. When Brain cells are unable to receive what they need, or they are unable to live in an environment free of toxic waste products, they may react by becoming hyperactive in response to the strain, or hypoactive due to the injurious condition; or the same cell or cell groups can be hyperactive at some times and hypoactive at other times. Any of these responses can lead to a myriad of conditions, such as headaches, motor planning issues, speech issues, and one or more of the principal characteristics of ADD and ADHD: inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity.

CranioSacral Therapy is highly effective in relieving adverse strain patterns and restrictions, thereby enhancing the movement of fluid throughout the brain, spinal cord and the body as a whole. The stronger fluid motion helps brain cells receive normal levels of essential nutrients so they can function efficiently and in synchrony with other cells. It also creates a brain environment that is constantly flushed of waste products and toxic irritants. When the stress of compromised fluid flow is relieved, the areas of the brain that have been over-active and/or under-active can normalize, resulting in a central nervous system of greater balance and mobility, and a body that is able to return to its peak levels of performance. By helping the body make the biomechanical corrections necessary to allow the brain to function at its best, CranioSacral Therapy can decrease levels of ADD and ADHD, and in many cases, alleviate the disorders altogether.
