Cranial Sacral Therapy-

a sensitive yet powerful

approach to regulating

Cranial-Sacral movement

Cranial Sacral therapy was developed by American Osteopath William Sutherland.

He was the first to hypothesize and discover that the sutchers of the scull were not stationary, but

in fact were functioning as slight movement capacitors, like minute hinges. He found that the body possess Cranial Sacral Fluid, (CSF) which moves along the spine between sacrum and brain, akin to sap moving up within

a tree. This ebb and flow has been termed “The Breath of Life”, and is crucial to wellbeing.

He found that the different areas of the scull were linked to specific emotions or memories held within that persons body, which also correspond directly to that area of the brain. Injuries, traumas and pain all create blocks or holding patterns within the body. By working with the cranial rhythms through gentle manipulation of

the sacrum and cranium, CSF can be encouraged to flow in a healthy pattern, thus the term “unwinding” is used to describe the event in which these holding patterns are released during and after the Cranial Sacral session.
