CranioSacral Reflexology (CSR) integrates the principles of Reflexology, Cranial Osteopathy and Cranio-Sacral Therapy.  Unlike traditional reflexology, which focuses on the general systems of the body and its parts, the focus and intent of CSR is to enhance the flow of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the body,  This is done by working on the reflex areas related to the craniosacral system, consisting of the CSF and the membranes (meninges) which surround and protect the brain and spinal cord, the bones and sutures of the skull and the spinal vertebrae and the twelve pairs of cranial nerves.  It is helpful for:

  • migraines and headaches
  • constipation
  • irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • disturbed sleep cycles and insomnia
  • scoliosis
  • sinus infections
  • neck pain
  • fibromyalgia
  • recurrent ear infections or colic in infants
  • TMJ Syndrome
  • trauma recovery, including trauma from whiplash
  • mood disorders such as anxiety or depression
  • difficult pregnancies

"The Soul Swims in the CSF" 

The cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is a clear, colorless fluid which bathes and protects the CNS (brain and spinal cord). It plays a very potent nutritive role for all the tissues of the body and plays a crucial role in the function of the central nervous system. It is thought that all energy systems within the body communicate with each other via the cerebrospinal fluid.
