Thinking about how to improve the central nervous system?

Craniosacral therapy evaluates and helps the functions of the craniosacral system. Craniosacral system is the membrane and fluid that surrounds the spinal cord and brain.
Working of craniosacral therapy:
Craniosacral therapy works by applying light pressure on the head. All the restrictions are released in order to improve the central nervous system flow and functions by feeling the rhythm of the craniosacral system.
Practitioners of craniosacral therapy claim to be able to locate and release what are referred to as energy cysts. In the cysts energy can develop and then become blocked, as in neck pain from holding your neck at a particular angle all day at work.
Benefits of craniosacral therapy:
