MODERN CRANIAL: Advanced LiteForce Technique

Cranial techniques tend to be either gentle, slow and unreliable, or rough, fast, and painful. LiteForce Cranial is the first cranial technique to recognize the new, scientific discoveries about the evolving cranial structure. These innovations have created the most gentle, and rapid cranial techniques available.

Cranial Introduction

This video introduces the revolutionary simplicity of LiteForce cranial. By using concepts and procedures drawn from osteopathy, chiropractic, and biomechanics, LiteForce cranial sets a new standard in the understanding of how to rapidly and effectively evaluate and treat craniosacral problems. Let us know if you have questions!

Cranial Symmetry

Evaluating the skull is a difficult process. That is why we developed this novel technique of palpating the skull for joint play. Checking component motion and cranial joint play, makes this an easy and effective way to bring objectivity to craniosacral therapy.

The Frontal

The frontal bone is one of the strongest bones in the skull. The combination of the frontal bone, occiput and temporals make up what can be referred to as both part of the cranial base and cranial vault. However, I refer to these three bones as the foundation of the skull since it is like the foundation of a house. The parietals and the superior parts of the frontal, temporals, and occiput make up the walls and roof of the house.

The Occiput

The lower parts of the occiput, frontal, and temporals create the foundation of the skull. The top parts of these bones and the parietals make up the walls and roof of the cranium.

The Temporal Bones

The temporal bones lie between the occiput and frontal bones. They harmonize the movements of the frontal bone and occiput and provide flexibility to the cranial foundation, walls and roof.

The Mandible or TMJ

The mandible is locked in the same way as the temporals, parietals, and facial bones. It is pushed to the left of the TMJ, probably to make room for the left hemispheres of the brain. Thus, the left TMJ moves lateral and slightly anterior.

The Maxilla

The maxilla form the foundation of the face. Like the rest of the skull, there is a distortion to make room for the evolving brain. Thus, about 90% of the time, the left maxilla moves anterior and superior while the right maxilla does the opposite. Learn to harmonize and mobilize the maxilla with these videos.

manual therapyParietals Adjustment

The Parietals

The parietals make up the majority of what we call the cranial vault. In general, probably due to the widening of the left side of the cortex, which distorts the left side of the skull, it is likely that the left parietal is stiffer and produces less lateral flare than the right side.

Trigger Points

Trigger points form in all areas of the skull where the musculature is under stress from repetitive strain and trauma. However, the majority of trigger points are found in the temoralis muscles. These trigger points feel like tiny worms when you roll your fingers over the muscles to palpate for stress and tension.

Manual Therapy

is the skilled application of passive movement to a joint either within ('mobilisation') or beyond its active range of movement ('manipulation').

This includes oscillatory techniques, high velocity low amplitude thrust techniques, sustained stretching and muscle energy techniques.
