About Craniosacral system

Cranio referring to the bony vault that protects the brain.  Sacral is a triangular bone at the base of spine.

The Craniosacral system consists of cranial bones, meningeal membranes, cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds and protects the brain and spinal cord.  It extends from the bones of the skull down to the tailbone area.

This craniosacral system has its pathological significance and healing capabilities, it influences and is influenced by a variety of other body systems.

At a deep level of our physiological functioning, healthy living tissues have subtle breathing with the motion of life – a phenomenon that produce rhythmic impulse from craniosacral system which can be palpated by sensitive hands.

This subtle rhythm of the craniosacral system was discovered by Osteopath physician Dr. William Sutherland over 100 years ago and further developed by Osteopath physician Dr. John Uperledge who incorporated them into a treatment call Craniosacral Therapy.
