A child’s body has a profound ability to self-correct issues which are affecting the body’s internal systems. The craniosacral system is a semi-closed hydraulic system which produces a continuous rise and fall of fluid pressure that monitors and maintains the health of the central nervous system (a central governing system for all levels of health). This can be likened to the rhythmic, ever-present rise and fall of the oceans’ tides.
To continue the analogy, a storm on the ocean creates a disruption to these tidal rhythms. Similarly, an internal "storm" caused by restricted fluids and energy in the craniosacral system, is disruptive to internal healthy functioning and external well-being. In physical aspects, this often will impair a child’s ability to function at normal neurological-physical levels, such as adaptation to environment, motor actions like moving muscles correctly, sensory functions, immune system functioning, coordination, focus, eye movements/vision, and many more examples. A child with these restrictions (which are very common in all modern humans) can also show social/emotional/mental symptoms such as trouble transitioning from one activity to another, excessive crying and whining, frustration with playmates or tasks, mild to severe learning disablities, obstinance or stoicism, and so on.
Craniosacral Therapy can detect the disruptions by identifying "sites of restriction", and offers release of the restrictions so that the entire internal system (the whole child) can return to an optimal and peaceful state of being.
