Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral therapy involves the manipulation of the craniosacral system to relieve stress on the brain and improve the flow of cerebrospinal fluid. Connective tissue, also known as fascia, can be found in pretty much every part of the body and connects many bodily systems. The individual collagen tubes that make up this network are full of cerebrospinal fluid and make up the craniosacral system. Dysfunction in the system can interrupt the flow of fluid through these tubes, put unwanted stress on the brain, and may lead to a number of neurological issues, including ADHD or ADHD-like symptoms.

Such dysfunctions can be caused by physical trauma and other environmental factors. The primary goal of craniosacral therapy is to manipulate the connective tissue in a way that relaxes the tissues and relieves the strain that has been put on the brain. Much work remains to be done to fully understand the impact and mechanisms behind craniosacral therapy, but preliminary findings suggest that it could be a good choice for those suffering from ADHD.

Scientific Studies:

In 2009, Dr. Barry R. Gillespie published a report on a 4-year-old boy who had been demonstrating hyperactive, disruptive behavior and was brought in for craniosacral therapy. Significant improvements were noted both during and after the treatment period, during which he became more attentive and less aggressive. Improvements in speech and performance in school were also noted.

Craniosacral therapy can also be used in conjunction with other forms of therapy. A 2009 report described the treatment of a 6-year-old boy who supplemented his ADHD medication with chiropractic adjustments, craniosacral therapy, and nutritional supplements. The boy showed notable improvements in focus and cooperativeness as noted by teachers and his bus driver, and eventually went off his meds entirely.
