The spine is the structural backbone on which rests the quality of our physiological and psychological experiences. Via its intermediating connections, body parts relate to each other in holistic ways . A healthy spine is therefore necessary to our wellbeing.
The spine determines our posture and our core. All three essential to correct breathing. The movement of breath within us can create spaciousness, flow and a sense of integration or can cause contraction, tightness and rigidity.
Cranial nerves in control of involuntary motion send messages via the spinal cord. Any spinal injuries if left untreated at both physical and emotional levels can influence our natural reflexes to slow down or hasten to alarming levels causing disharmony.
A supple and free flowing spine gives us freedom to make intended movement happen, while restrictions can set off facilitated segments that include viscera. A sedentary life can also deflect the purpose of a healthy spine, which is to assist in unhindered movement.
Cranial sacral therapy for anxiety from emotionally charged situations, is likely to release spinal discomfort. The CNS and the ANS can trigger and be triggered by emotions. Holding on to real and perceived grievances can create energetic and physical blocks specially within the sacral area. Spine mobility can also be the precious gift of healthy emotions and vice versa.
