The Cranials are the 8 bones of the human skull that makes up the cranium vault. They are joined together with thin layers of dense fibrous connective tissues called sutures. We also find fissures between the cranial plates. The fissures allow the cranials to move with specific rhythmic patterns that move the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). The CSF nourishes, protects and maintains the functions of the central nervous system. Disruptions to these movements are affected by, as well as have an impact on, a person’s general well-being.
When a person experiences physical or emotional trauma, is under stress, or carries with them emotional or spiritual blockages, these fissures can become ‘fused’, ‘locked’ or ‘rigid’. Losing the elasticity that enables free movement will lead to a reduction of the natural capacity to self-heal. Balancing the Cranials can bring the person into a much healthier physical, mental, emotional and spiritual alignment.
