Precision working on the cranial meninges is extremely important. The change of tension inside the cranium modifies the tension in the thorax, pelvis and abdomen and ultimately influences the whole-body system.
Release of the intracranial meninges is usually an essential and very powerful application for conditions such as motor vehicle accidents, concussion, strokes, chronic meningitis, nervous system surgeries, chronic headaches as well as for children with cerebral palsy, on the autistic spectrum, etc.
Beryl E. Arbuckle, DO, FACOP, one of the first teachers in the faculty of WG Sutherland, developed a technique that was unfortunately lost to the osteopathic world. She described specific concepts of dural “stress bands” and reinforcement of the cranial bones (“buttresses”) that could indicate problems with the central nervous system. She made available beautiful maps of the dural network based on numerous precise dissections of the nervous system.
We will work on structures such as:
· Falx Cerebri and Falx Cerebelli
· Parieto-Temporal Lines
· Vertical Epicanthal LinesA
· Occipital Paramedial Lines
· Frontal Eminences
· Parietal Eminences
· Mastoid Processes
· Anterior and Posterior Dural Girdle
· Asterion, Pterion, Foramen Magnum, Metopic area, etc.
