What is CranioSacral?
If you are experiencing puzzling and unusual symptoms and conditions that are not responding to traditional medical approaches, you may want to try CranioSacral Therapy (CST). This therapy is a light touch [about 5 grams or the weight of a nickel], hands-on method of releasing restrictions around the brain and spinal cord to enable your body to self-correct and free itself of pain, dysfunction, and other health conditions.
It is a natural therapy that works with the body, not against it. The central focus of this modality is the spinal column, cranium [head], sacrum [tailbone], and the dural tube that encases this osseous structure and contains the cerebral spinal fluid.
Very light touch is used to assess and correct cranial plate alignment, adhesions of dural tube to spine, and misalignment of the sacrum. Other techniques may be used in combination with CranioSacral Therapy to address the entire body, including Myofascial Release treatment.
The origin of this therapy was developed by an osteopath named William G. Sutherland in the early 1930s. The CranioSacral Therapy that we know today was pioneered and perfected by an osteopathic physician, John E. Upledger, a clinical researcher and professor of Biomechanics at Michigan State University in the 1970's, now practicing at the Upledger Institute in Florida.
