Craniosacral Mechanism is Structure and Function
The Autonomic Nervous System, among other components, is comprised of Cerebro-Spinal Fluid (CSF) the driving force of the Craniosacral Mechanism. CSF is interrelated with Chakras, Meridian Points and Biofield and make up the energetic components, the energetic anatomy, the physical body is dependent on.
CSF flow is the mechanism, the energetic / hydraulic system of the physical human body. CSF is the energetic conductor of life force throughout the body and when nervous system conductivity is compromised for any length of time due to stuck emotional energies, muscle tone is effected. These groups of muscles then develop insidious shortening of its length, latent trigger points and spasm, and often without pain.
Altered subconscious shortened muscle length is the result, and constant pulling on the spine causes curving stemming from the origin and insertion points of the effected group of muscles. The body is stuck in a pattern of antagonistic and agonistic muscles all living in the same tightened state. This is why the curve(s) continues to increase for most people. Taking into consideration the need for the head to always maintain the most upright and level position, an “S” shaped scoliosis forms most commonly.
Cranial Mobility is Part of the Craniosacral Mechanism
The craniosacral mechanism is the pumping mechanism of CSF, it is the liquid flow throughout the physical confines of the head and spine and further dynamic energetic essence stemming from the flow of CSF throughout the whole body.
When there is a stuck energetic disruption there becomes a lack of proper CSF flow of essence. This, among other compromises, also effects specific bones in the cranium (head) causing them to lose mobility at the sutures inhibiting the functions of the craniosacral Mechanism.
Cranial mobility is one of the most important physiological functions of a living organism. This movement within the cranium, between the plates of bones, pumps fluid throughout the body which is produced in the choroid plexus of the brain, CSF. The cranium is part of the delicate system of the Craniosacral Mechanism. When this system is compromised in a particular pattern, muscles tighten and eventually scoliosis forms.
Importance of Cranial Mobility and Scoliosis Treatment
Regarding cranial mobility, Osteopathic Physician Dr. William G. Sutherland in the 1930’s discovered the natural movement that exists in the cranium between the plates of bones at the sutures. Some decades later Dr. Harold I. Magoon, also an Osteopath stated that, “spinal scoliosis and cranial scoliosis are inseparable”. Therefore, deviation from structural symmetry within the cranial bones effects a balanced flow of CSF.
In scoliosis, one very important fact to understand is that the spine, the vertebral column itself is a passive structure comprised of bone (vertebral body), disc and ligaments. It cannot bend or twist by itself. The muscles that attach to the vertebral column via tendons are one hundred percent responsible for controlling the movement and positioning of the spine.
Therefore, in achieving scoliosis reversal, it is important to have the body release stored trauma and stuck emotions, thereby untightening contracted / spasmodic groups of muscles, and to make sure that there is ample cranial mobility and ample CSF flow.

Infants diagnosed with scoliosis most commonly have a misaligned cranium as a result of the birthing process. All other information, reasons, medical explanations are incorrect, according to Dr. Kaminsky. Babies are not born with a scoliotic spine. It is a condition that’s caused during labor and delivery most of the time.
Pulling, twisting and compressing the baby’s head during delivery jams up the plates of delicate bones at the sutures causing a subluxation in the head and neck, which in turn causes a decreased flow of CSF, causing the spine to curve.
Careful evaluation and palpation of the head is necessary to validate this likelihood, and if confirmed that there is cranial sutural jamming or overlapping of the plates of bone, correction efforts must be made to address cranial unjamming and realignment. The spine will then straighten automatically.
What To Look For In Infantile Scoliosis
The tell – tell signs to look for is head and facial asymmetry.
Ask yourself the following questions:
- Is one ear sticking out more than the other?
- Is the ear on one side higher than the other?
- Is the forehead uneven?
- Does the mouth look symmetrical?
- Is the jaw uneven?
- Does one side of the head look flatter than the other?
- Does the baby’s head look uneven?
If the answer is yes to any of the questions above, and your child has been diagnosed with scoliosis, he or she may have sutural jamming / overlapping that is causing the spine to curve, scoliosis.
Adult Onset Scoliosis
Adult onset scoliosis is a condition discovered in a mature adult. Scoliosis that forms in adults happens for the same reasons as in children. Emotional experiences / physical trauma recently felt that becomes energetically stuck in the body. Learn more about the human body and its function, Click Here.
