The Craniosacral therapy is a very gentle form of manual therapy which has been developed from Osteopathy.
This therapy was founded in the USA by Osteopath William Garner Sutherland (1873-1954). With several studies and self-experimentation he discovered the so-called Craniosacral rhythm.
It was Dr. John G. Upledger, who developed, in the 70s and 80s, what we know today as Craniosacral therapy.
The treatment is primarily concentrated on the head (Cranium) and the sacrum (Sacrum).
The therapist can "listen" to the Craniosacral Rhythm on different parts of the body. This "primarily respiratory mechanism" corresponds to the fluctuation of the the cerebrospinal fluid, which has a frequency of 6 - 12 pulse waves per minute. This "pulse" is passed onto the surrounding tissues and bones, which makes it possible for the therapist to feel it.
Restrictions, blockades, malfunctions of the Craniosacral system can so be found and treated.
A Craniosacral treatment can support the healing of acute & chronic conditions.
It works regenerative and supports to preserve our body and mind healthy.
