Craniosacral Therapy

What is craniosacral therapy?

Craniosacral therapy is a comprehensive, holistic body therapy. It combines scientific insights and precise anatomical knowledge with the finely trained, intuitive perception of the therapist. 
The craniosacral therapy was developed on the basis of osteopathy. It is based on two points: the cranium (skull) and the sacrum (sacral bone). Between those two points cerebrospinal fluid flows rhythmically. This rhythm is carried throughout the whole body and influences the development and functioning of the entire person.
The craniosacral therapist senses these rhythmic motions. Guided by these detected rhythmic movements and the inner wisdom of the body of the client, the craniosacral therapist gives gentle impulses to encourage a deep relaxation and activating self-regulation of the body.
