What is Craniosacral Therapy?
CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system – comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.
CranioSacral Therapy was pioneered and developed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger following extensive scientific studies from 1975 to 1983 at Michigan State University, where he served as a clinical researcher and Professor of Biomechanics.
In our courses you’ll learn gentle techniques to normalize the craniosacral system and allow the body to self-correct. Few systems have as much impact on the human body as the craniosacral system.
It protects and nourishes the brain and spinal cord – and affects nearly every aspect of central nervous system performance.
