Did you know that it only takes a split second for your fight or flight mechanism to kick in with the surges of adrenaline and cortisol throughout the entire Autonomic Nervous System. Then once it kicks in it is supposed to revert back to that balanced state after the emergency is over, but with our busy and stressful lives that we now live this does not always happen. CranioSacral Therapy can help us get back to balance by helping us to rebalance our Nervous System from the Sympathetic (or active) Nervous System to Parasympathetic (or resting) Nervous System.

Facia is a strong layer of connective tissue that wraps and encases all bones, muscles, tendons and even nerves. If there is an injury to one of these, there is likely also an injury to the surrounding facia as well.
The function of facia is to support and separate the components that they encase. If we did not have facia wrapping our internal organs they would all be in a heap at the bottom of our body cavity. If we did not have facia wrapping and encasing our muscles and bones they would not be able to glide independent of each other.
Everything is connected and by pulling on one portion of the facia, you will also affect another part of the facia quite some distance away. In fact, an injury to the facia in the knee can, and very well will affect places as far away as your shoulder or your neck and back. The constant tension that pulls from the knee will also pull all the way up to the upper body. Because of this we often wonder why or neck hurts when that is not the part that was injured by the accident or trauma, or perhaps we will not even realize that they are in any way related.
CranioSacral Therapy and Myofacial Unwinding are wonderful ways of releasing these restrictions. The therapist uses the subtle cues that your body gives as clues to where the restrictions are. Often times the clients symptoms may point in an area that would be perhaps the origin, but perhaps are instead the secondary area that is being affected by an injury elsewhere. Even the clients reporting of the symptoms may not uncover the actual area or areas where the facia has been restricted. This is where the observation and palpation of a trained therapist is valuable.
