A Closer Look at Cranio-Sacral therapy
This therapy was developed during the late 1970s by Dr John Mathew Upledger an American Osteopath who based his research upon the work of Dr William Garner Sutherland also an osteopath who developed Cranial Osteopathy.
The brain produces a fluid that flows around the cranial bowl and spine and, like blood flow, it has a rhythm. Variations and restrictions in this movement cause the system to become unbalanced, it is believed that changes in the cerebrospinal fluid will can effect every cell in the body via the connective tissue. CranioSacral Therapy uses a very gentle touch to evaluate the craniosacral system; the difference between cranial osteopathy and craniosacral therapy is that a Cranialsacral practitioner focuses on the soft tissues, fluid and membrane of the cranio-sacral system rather than the bones.
Being holistic, the therapy improves general health, but is commonly used for the natural treatment of stress, chronic pain, Migraines, back injuries, depression, scoliosis, coordination problems, post-operative care, sports injuries, birth trauma, hyperactivity and hormonal imbalances. Many people report a feeling of "emotional release” during a treatment; as it is very gentle it is suitable for babies, children and the elderly.
