CranioSacral Therapy is concerned with achieving optimum freedom of function of the cerebrospinal system and the connective tissues of the body. The cerebrospinal system consists of the brain and spinal cord and the fluid, membranes and bones which surround them. The title “CranioSacral” comes from cranium (bones of the skull) which surrounds the upper end of the cerebral spinal system and the sacrum (tail bone) which provides the lower attachment of the system.
CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, light touch, non-invasive technique which aims to allow the body to self-correct. Using the bones surrounding the cerebrospinal system as handles, any restrictions can be released, allowing normal function to be re-established.
CranioSacral Therapy can be used in all age groups, and indeed is perhaps best known for the treatment of children and babies.
