Communication and coordination between all our systems, require the smooth flow of biochemical and electromagnetic signals through our fluids, tissues, and bones. The fluidity of our emotions and thoughts enables us to harmonize our inner world and be flexible and resilient in our dealings with the outer world. The movement of Chi "energy" is what moves us through life.
Cranio-Sacral work facilitates a deeper mind-body-spirit connection that is healing and deeply rejuvenating on all levels.
The middle gate is located in the area of the heart and lungs and is associated with the pumping motion of the diaphragm and heart. When this gate is open and energy is flowing smoothly through it, our emotional and mental bodies are clear and fluid. If this gate is blocked, however, our emotions may be stuck and our thinking muddy.
The upper gate is found at the base of the skull where the occiput meets the atlas. When energy cannot move smoothly through this gate, we may notice headaches and/ or difficulty accessing our spirituality.
