CFT SA It's all about the Fascia! May 2017 - Page 9

Fascial Therapy

The fascial tissues connect all of our structures from head to toe as one unit. The craniosacral mechanism sits in this fascial web; they both function together as the craniosacral fascial system. If the fascia is loose in its natural state, the body can work freely. When physical trauma over the course of a lifetime imprints the fascial web, it can exert a pressure of up to 2,000 pounds per square inch on the craniosacral structures. This fascial pressure can severely restrict the motion of the brain and cause head and systemic body pain.

CFT seeks to relieve the strain in the web over a series of visits, allow the craniosacral mechanism to free up and work better, and return the body physiology to a more relaxed, healthy state. This is an optimal state for headache relief.

Muscle Therapy

The neck has many muscles layered on top of each other that are attached to the cranium. If these muscles start to become knotted and forcibly contract similar to the fascial strain above, the motion of the brain may restrict, and headaches can result. Muscle therapy can be an important part of treatment.
