Example text

This "sum of the parts" palpation is a good spot for fishing. " With this in mind our interest is in the integrated subjective status of our patient as perceived in his or her nervous system by our nervous system. The craniosacral rhythm represents the "big picture" status of the brain attitude and serves as a tuning device for the long-loop function. Give yourself permission to feel and use it to plug in. You may choose to focus on the rhythm, or may instead shift your focus to tension, lever, and pressure forces in the body, moving freely between aspects, registering the impression as you go.

The approach presented here varies from AK in that we will palpate the fluid pressure and tension pattern directly as an indicator of the patient's dynamic state. This parallels Selye's principle of stress as an overall, nonspecific physiologic response in addition to all of the specific responses. "Anything can cause anything" in the hydraulic membrane system; therefore, while the superficial osseous pattern is observed and noted, it is not too seriously analyzed. It is a handle on the dynamic state, most useful simply as a point of departure for change.

The unit of physiologic motility is the fluid-filled membrane sac, which exists repeatedly as a structural theme of the organism from the gross to the microscopic. Motile units include the whole body, fascial fluid compartments (including the meninges), organs within their capsules, cells, etc. Besides functioning as an expression of aliveness, physiologic motion plays a vital role in the movement of fluids throughout the body. The Motile Effect of CRI on Neurons This speculative functional model is offered as a possible explanation of the palpable phenomenon of the craniosacral rhythmic impulse (CRI) throughout the body, based on anatomic and physiologic concepts and on Upledger's idea that the choroid plexus functions intermittently through feedback mechanisms.
