-Wellness Wednesday, Relax the Brain: A Holistic Approach to your Health

Presented by Preya Shah

Every day your body endures stresses and strains that it must work to compensate for. Unfortunately, these changes often cause body tissues to tighten and distort the craniosacral system. These distortions can then cause tension to form around the brain and spinal cord resulting in restrictions. This can create a barrier to the healthy performance of the central nervous system, and potentially every other system it interacts with.

Fortunately, such restrictions can be detected and corrected using simple methods of touch. Watch this webinar to learn techniques, such as CranioSacral Therapy, for normalizing the environment around the brain and spinal cord and enhancing the body's ability to self-correct.
