Adults can also benefit from Physiotherapy and Craniosacral Fascial Therapy (CFT).
Conditions treatment can help include:
As with babies and children, we often notice improvements in the following as well:
Although our 3D web of fascia / connective tissue is much larger than babies and children – everything in our adult body is still connected via the fascia.
If there is strain, injury or tightness anywhere in the fascia (eg from a muscle injury), this strain will eventually pull through the entire 3D web of connective tissue and can start to cause pain or disorder elsewhere in the body.
With Craniosacral Fascial Therapy, we are able to address, treat and help to relieve strain throughout the body. This helps to promote optimal alignment of the spine and other joints (particularly the jaw), which results in a general reduction of muscle spasm, pain and stiffness throughout the body.
One huge benefit is addressing jaw / temperomandibular (TMJ) pain, stiffness, clicking, misalignment as well as related headaches or neck pain and stiffness. Treatment may help align the jaw and correct the bite. This, in turn, reduces strain in the jaw and may help minimize jaw clenching and grinding of teeth.
Scar tissue from any surgery or injury impacts the fascia. The scar tissue tightens, thickens and causes restrictions in the fascia. This restriction can eventually pull through the 3D fascial web and start to cause pain and disorder elsewhere in the body. Treatment also focuses on releasing scar tissue, and it can be very effective in breaking down scar tissue, even from old surgery.
Fascia surrounds every organ, nerve, blood vessel, muscle, ligament, bone and structure in the body. So because treatment is addressing the entire fascial system, it can directly impact every system in the body – the digestive system, respiratory system, reproductive system, endocrine (hormonal) system, neural system, vascular system, muscular system.
If you are looking for a complete, holistic approach to help release and ease the strain, pain and stiffness in your body, Craniosacral Fascial Therapy may be for you.
