Cranial sacral therapy (also known as craniosacral therapy) is a gentle, noninvasive form of alternative therapy
that deals with the movement of the fluid surrounding the skull and spine and the position of the cranial bones.
Cranial sacral therapists ease the flow of the fluid and free restrictions of nerve passages by focusing on the
membranes that encase the central nervous system.
The skull is made up of 8 bones that protect the brain and 14 smaller bones that comprise the lower front of the
skull. The cranial bones do not fuse but remain seperate throughout life. The space between the bones are called sutures.
Many times these seperate cranial bones can become stuck or jammed requiring cranial therapy.
Cranial sacral therapy seeks to restore balance to the crainal sacral system and relieve pressure in the cranial
bones and sacrum. Proper movement of the cranial bones and spinal fluid is critical to good health.
