About CranioSacral Therapy:

CranioSacral therapy was first developed in the 1920’s by Dr. William Sutherland, who discovered the gentle rhythm of the cerebral spinal fluid which he called the Primary Respiratory Mechanism.  After extensive investigation into the movements of the cranial bones, he developed Cranial Osteopathy.  In the 1970’s, Sutherland’s work was researched and scientifically validated by a team led by Dr. John Upledger, D.O. at Michigan State University.  Subsequently, Dr. Upledger went on to develop a method of training CranioSacral therapists and created the Upledger Institute. 

CranioSacral therapy is non-invasive and scientifically based. It can be a very effective treatment for a wide range of common conditions such as migraines, neck and back pain, stress-related problems, orthopedic conditions and even dental problems. CST has been used on babies to help reduce colic, crying and miss-shapened skulls, as well as children with attention deficit disorders, dyslexia, autism and learning difficulties. CranioSacral Therapy is also very helpful for accident recovery, helping to gently and effectively release adhesions in the muscles, connective tissue, sacrum and cranium.
