The brain itself can not feel pain, however there are pain receptors in the lining surrounding the brain tissue and membrane that lines the skull. In tension headaches, pain registered in these can relate to compression and reduced movement of the cranial bones. The cranial bones are not fixed but instead exhibit micro-movement. These small movements help ensure the natural circulation of the cerebro-spinal and extracellular fluid in our body. In cases where there is asymmetrical movement of the cranial bones, such as at the sphenoid or temporal bones, a build up of pressure and imbalance can be felt. Through light touch the Craniosacral practitioner helps restore the balance and relieve the tension, as the body re-regulates to its natural patterns of circulation.
