The Orbit

This video shows the orbit, which is formed by seven bones: frontal bone, sphenoid bone, maxilla, zygomatic bone, ethmoid bone, lacrimal bone, and palatine bone.

Dysfunctional bony orbit position or decreased orbit motion response to the craniosacral rhythm can lead to conditions, such as:

  • Impaired vision,
  • Difficulty controlling eye movement
  • Altered eye position
  • Head tilt
  • Altered body posture and muscular tone
  • Balance problems
  • Neck muscle imbalance, rigidity or pain
  • Eye pain
  • Face pain
  • Irritation of the mucous membrane of the nasal cavity or paranasal sinuses
  • Headache
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Memory problems

Craniosacral Therapy can help to improve the bony orbit, which often facilitates the body’s ability to self-correct the issues listed above.
