What is Bio Cranial Therapy?
Biocranial therapy is a breakthrough in helping the body heal itself.
One of the great teachers of our time, Robert Boyd, DO, believes all diseases have a common foundation…too much tightness in the muscles, connective tissue and bones of the skeleton. When these important parts of the body become restricted and compressed, many parts of the body suffer, even the organs. Most often, this contraction and compression is the result of trauma…birth, falls, auto accidents, sports injuries and physical assault.
Few are aware of the powerful relationship that exists between the skull, pelvis, and spine.
The cerebrospinal pump that pushes the spinal fluid through out this closed system beats about 12 times a minute. This pumping action bathes all the cells with nutrients and removes the wastes created by the millions of chemical reactions in every cell that are an integral part of life.
The skull, the home of the brain, contains 80% of our nervous system.
The brain is the most powerful and critical organ in your body. When the skull expands to its maximum size, the circulation of blood and spinal fluid flows freely. The brain works better when it has access to more critical nutrients. When metabolic wastes are removed at an accelerated rate, the cells live longer and function optimally.
One of the most critical aspects of the cranial structure is a lining that attaches to the inner surface of the skull. This lining is known as the dura mater, which means “tough mother” in Latin because it is the toughest tissue in the body.
The dura is critical to every aspect of life. This membrane, thin and strong like the nylon in a parachute or backpack, adheres to the inside of the skull. It then exits the skull and physically anchors into the upper neck region and to the sacrum. If something were to cause a pull or contraction in the dura in or near its attachment points in the skull, this contraction would also be transmitted to the neck and low back regions. In fact, this process has been filmed. This state of contraction in the dura is a reality. This tension also infiltrates the fascia, a continuous thin sheath that surrounds every bone, blood vessel, muscle, and organ in the body!
What Doctor Boyd Discovered
Dr. Boyd discovered a way to release the contraction in the dura that predisposes us to have spinal structural problems and other health problems which are caused or worsened by the dural contraction (the underlying weakness). It is this underlying weakness that permits an onset of symptoms that causes the patient to seek professional attention.
What should I expect?
The procedure of Bio Cranial Therapy is approximately three minutes long. There is no jerking, thrusting or popping, many people say it feels like an intense stretch. The procedure may be a bit uncomfortable to some, yet once performed there is an immediate sense of change. Some people feel more relaxed and others feel a general sense of well being.
We are beginning a process of wellness, not treating any one disease .
Bio Cranial has enabled many patients to enjoy faster and more lasting improvements than they have experienced with other methods. In many cases, people with very chronic and entrenched problems have responded well, even after long periods of frustration following the use of other medical and holistic therapies.
For too long, doctors of chiropractic and osteopathy have focused on skeletal imbalances with little regard to the skull.
Lesions and restrictions inside the skull, have a powerful impact on the rest of the body. Once doctors start working with the skull, spine and pelvis as a synchronized unit, the beneficial changes are often dramatic.
Isn’t it about time you discovered the answer to your persistent health problems. Biocranial therapy could be your missing link to a new, healthier you.
