CranioSacral is an alternative healing therapy developed and described as energy therapy, by Dr. John Upledger, D. O.  In his textbook, “Craniosacral Therapy”, He defines the craniosacral system as being integrated with, influencing and being influenced by, all the body’s systems, including nervous, musculoskeletal, vascular, lymphatic, endocrine and respiratory.

Dr. Upledger describes the craniosacral system as a semi-closed hydraulic system based on the production and circulation of the cerebrospinal fluid, produced in the brain’s fourth ventricle.  The resultant pulse can be palpated throughout the body.  The practitioner uses the feedback gained by palpation to manipulate it’s rhythm, triggering homeostatic balance and correction of the dysfunction.

Inflammation, pain, physical or emotional trauma, stress, can result in distortion or restrictions in the body which can be relieved by the use of CranioSacral therapy.
