CranioSacral Therapy and Manual Lymphatic Drainage, oh my!
Have you noticed you don’t remember what you went into the other room for? Or where you parked your car? Or what you wore yesterday? Some say this is a “normal” part of aging. Some say it’s your body’s response that something is not right.
Stress, environmental exposures, toxic cleaning and personal care products, exposure to common weed killers, traumatic brain injuries, lifestyle choices and even sports concussions can all contribute to declining brain health.
The lymphatic system, which is the collection of vessels and nodes running throughout the body that helps cleanse waste products and is part of the body’s immune system, and the glymphatic system, which is the cleansing system in the brain, work marvelously in our bodies. Until they get clogged and sluggish – caused largely by the above-mentioned factors.
Supporting and enhancing this cleansing process could lead to improved outcomes in brain injury and brain disease. Craniosacral therapy effectively promotes brain health by invigorating this active fluid cleansing system. Craniosacral techniques restore and enhance fluid movement within the brain and spinal cord and throughout the whole body. During acraniosacral therapy session cerebrospinal fluid motion is increased, improving glymphatic flushing of the brain tissues.
Additionally, manual lymphatic drainage techniques are beneficial to optimizing whole body wellness and ridding waste in your cells. Together, craniosacral therapy and manual lymphatic drainage techniques work to flush the body of toxins and are essential for brain detoxification, nutrition, and normal range of function. Manual lymphatic drainage for brain health is very effective yet gentle to receive.
