Craniosacral Therapy @ The Lyttle Difference
Arguably superior to the violent ‘cracking’ of Chiropractors, the cranial rhythm is thought (and recently proven through N.A.S.A.) to be an underlying rhythm or pulse (much like the tide in the ocean, but in and out, about 12 times per minute) that govern the body’s soft and hard tissues.
Craniosacral Therapy is the art of reading this wave like motion to understand the position of the body, seeing with your fingers and hands where and what is tight and ‘out’. Whilst reading the torsion and tensions it is quite easy and pain-less to align the misplaced bones.
The Cranial Rhythm is an advanced Osteopathic technique that works with the body’s very own rhythm or tidal motion of Flexion (withdrawing into the fetal position) and Extension (external rotation and lengthening of limbs). This rhythm is also known as the Primary Respiratory Mechanism with the lungs actually being the Secondary Respiratory Mechanism.
It was discovered in the late 1800’s by Dr. William Sutherland a surgeon and was later perfected by Dr. John Upledger, where he perfected the observation into a holistic treatment called Osteopathy.
Because Craniosacral Therapy is working with the body’s own healing and governing system, I find it tends to be a more powerful, more in tune and consequently a more effective mode of alignment that needs less treatments to gain better results for a longer period of time.
This also saves you time and money, coupled with preventative massage and exercise you are able to get back to a ‘normal’ lifestyle quicker.
That is our number one focus here at The Lyttle Difference.
