Healing Oasis of West Ashley
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.
In order to live, we need to keep oxygen, blood, and nutrients moving through our bodies. Movement bathes the body’s structures, bringing nourishment to organs, tissues,
If energy becomes stagnant, blocked, or weakened, our health is adversely affected. A skilled practitioner can sense and feel the blockages and help to open or release the restriction.
Cranio-Sacral work facilitates a deeper mind-body-spirit connection that is healing and deeply rejuvenating on all levels.
THREE PUMPING AREAS OR ENERGY
GATEWAYS IN THE SPINE
For there to be good flow throughout the entire system, the three key gates of the spine must be open: the lower gate, the middle gate, and the upper gate.
The lower gate or Tailbone Pass. It is located at the tailbone (coccyx) and sacrum. When this gate is closed then our sacrum is locked: we lose our connection with earth and may experience back pain.
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.
