Craniosacral Therapy


Cranial therapy was discovered by William Garner Sutherland (1873-1954). He was a student of Dr. Andrew Taylor Still (1828-1917), founder of general osteopathy. Through his research on the cranial sphere, Sutherland, shed light on the existence of a primary respiratory mechanism which is directing and controlling the secondary mechanisms of movement, and as a result affecting all the major functions of the body.


Craniosacral therapy is a gentle manual therapy that aims to improve craniosacral functioning. The cerebrospinal fluid in the brain and spinal cord has a natural rhythmic movement. This rhythm is distributed through the body homogeneously and synchronously except in case of pathology.
