CFT – Craniosacral Fascial Therapy

amanda brooks image cheshire tongue tieWhat it is and what I can expect?

CFT blends two established modalities: Cranial Sacral Therapy and Myofascial Release, into a single, highly effective therapyCFT is a gentle,healing modality that provides baby’s with a freely moving brain, spinal cord and fascial web, all critical to optimal health.

Craniosacral Fascial Therapy (CFT) is the work of Dr. Barry Gillespie. Based on his theory that the Craniosacral and Fascial systems are not separate, but one interconnected system.

The Cranioscaral system can become adversely tightened, causing tremendous pressure being exerted on associated nerves, muscles, organs, blood vessels, lymph vessels and bones. Profound effects on body function may result as a major cause of the presented health conditions.  Strain anywhere in that system may affect brain function and mobility.  This strain starts in utero and birth.  

This intricate system originates in the body’s core around the brain and spinal cord and extends through the body’s fascial web which surrounds and permeates every structure down to the cellular level. A healthy system allows for the free flow of Cerebrospinal fluid from the brain, down the spine, to the sacrum, and into the connective tissue (fascia).

CFT techniques are designed to gently unwind accumulated fascial strain, allowing optimal mobility and therefore better brain function. When the Craniosacral Fascial system is loose and open, there is optimal flow of cerebrospinal fluid to help nourish the body and cleanse toxins. We believe that every baby deserve to have CFT to enable them to reach their fullest potential.
