CranioSacral Therapy began at the beginning of the 20th century with the work of Dr. William Sutherland, an osteopathic physican, who developed a treatment method known as Cranial Osteopathy. In 1970, another osteopathic doctor, John E. Upledger observed a rhythmic movement in the membrane that surrounds the brain and spinal cord while assisting with surgery. Dr. Upledger's curiosity about this pulse, led him to Dr. Sutherlandºs treatment methods and to develop CranioSacral therapy.
CranioSacral Therapy involves using gentle touch to help balance the cerebrospinal fluid and the membranes and tissues surrounding the spine and brain. A treatment takes about an hour and involves placing the hands on the neck, feet, jaws, and sacrum.
Parents who have had their children treated with CranioSacral Therapy often report that the child is more relaxed, able to make better eye contact and is more verbal.
