Craniosacral: Working w the CSF as Sacred Energywork

Updated: Aug 8, 2023



Craniosacral Therapy is Energywork tapping into the most sacred fluid in the body. This is also what I tap into during

kali sessions.


The Dew of Heaven


The Fluid of the Gods


The Elixir of Life


The Heavenly Nectar


The Sacred Fluid of the Brain


These names above all reflect the ancient belief that cerebral spinal fluid is a sacred substance that is essential for life, health, and well-being. In many cultures, cerebral spinal fluid was believed to be a gift from the gods, and it was often used in religious rituals and ceremonies.


For example, in the Vedic tradition, it was believed that the gods created cerebral spinal fluid from the tears of the sun god, Surya. This fluid was then poured down from heaven to nourish the earth and its inhabitants.


In Greek mythology, it was believed that the gods drank cerebral spinal fluid from the River Lethe, which was said to grant forgetfulness. This fluid was also used by the gods to heal the wounded and to restore youth.


In Chinese medicine, cerebral spinal fluid is known as the "Shen", or "spirit", and it is believed to be the seat of consciousness and intelligence. It is also believed that the Shen is responsible for regulating the body's fluids and organs.


In Hinduism, cerebral spinal fluid is known as the "Ojas", or "vital energy", and it is believed to be the source of all physical and mental strength. It is also believed that the Ojas is responsible for protecting the body from disease and infection.


These are just a few examples of the many mystical names for cerebral spinal fluid that have been used throughout history. These names reflect the deep reverence that many cultures have for this vital substance.


Is Craniosacral Therapy right for you?


What is Craniosacral Therapy?

Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on therapy that focuses on the craniosacral system, which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and the membranes that surround them. CST practitioners use light touch to assess and release restrictions in the craniosacral system, which can help to improve overall health and well-being.


How does Craniosacral Therapy work?

The craniosacral system is a fluid-filled system, and the movement of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) can be affected by restrictions in the bones, membranes, or muscles of the craniosacral system. By using light touch, CST practitioners can detect and release these restrictions, which can help to improve the flow of CSF and improve overall health and well-being.


CST practitioners use their hands to feel for subtle changes in the craniosacral system. They use these changes to identify areas of tension and then use gentle pressure to release that tension.

Which has been shown to:


  • Reduce inflammation and pain

  • Improve circulation

  • Release tension in the muscles and tissues

  • Promote relaxation and stress relief

  • Improve the function of the nervous system


What Are the Benefits of Craniosacral Therapy?

CST has been shown to be effective in treating a variety of conditions, including:

  • Headaches

  • Migraines

  • Neck pain

  • Back pain

  • Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)

  • Anxiety & ADHD

  • Depression

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

  • Autism spectrum disorder (ASD)

  • Cerebral palsy

  • Learning disabilities


A typical craniosacral therapy session lasts for about an hour. During the session, you will lie on a massage table fully clothed. The therapist will use their hands to gently palpate your head, neck, and spine. You may feel some slight pressure, but you should not feel any pain.

You may feel extremely relaxed and sleepy during the session. Some people also report feeling a sense of well-being or peace.


How Many Craniosacral Therapy Sessions Do I Need?

The number of craniosacral therapy sessions you need will vary depending on your condition. Some people see results after just a few sessions, while others may need more.

It is important to be patient and to work with your therapist to develop a treatment plan that is right for you.


If you have any concerns about craniosacral therapy, you should talk to your doctor.
