Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, non-invasive hands –on modality, which restores free mobility of the nervous system and associated tissues and bones. It was initially developed by the American Osteopath Dr. William Sutherland as ‘Cranial Osteopathy’ in the beginning of the 20th century. Dr. Sutherland detected a gentle rhythmic mobility of the bones and fluids of the cranium and of the central nervous system. He found that even gentle manipulation of and communication with the Craniosacral system and its fluid ‘tides’ could yield great benefits for his patients with a wide variety of conditions.

The Craniosacral system is comprised of the bones of the cranium, the central nervous system, cerebrospinal fluid and the Dural membranes, which envelop the brain and spinal cord all the way down to their attachment on the sacrum. The craniosacral rhythm -a gentle ebb and flow of the fluids around the brain and spinal cord- can be felt most strongly at the head (cranium) and at the base of your spine (sacrum).

During a typical session the clients lays comfortably on his back, fully dressed, while the practitioner gently restores more freedom and ease in the system through gentle contacts with the sacrum, cranium and any other area that presents with restrictions in fluid movement. Often a state of deep peace and fluid expansion is experienced. Craniosacral therapy establishes more freedom, fluidity and resilience in the nervous system and can help to release tension and holding patterns that have been deeply ingrained in our nervous system, often since birth.
