Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral therapy (CST), or cranial-sacral therapy, is a form of bodywork or alternative therapy focused primarily on the concept of “primary respiration” and regulating the flow of cerebrospinal fluid by using therapeutic touch to manipulate the synarthrodial joints of the cranium. To do this, a practitioner will apply light touches to a client’s skull, face, spine and pelvis. Craniosacral therapy was developed by John Upledger, D.O. in the 1970’s, and is loosely based on osteopathy in the cranial field (OCF), which was developed in the 1930’s by William Garner Sutherland.
