According to those who practice it, it is the gentle handling of the skull and the sacrum to facilitate the free movement of cerebrospinal fluid.

Cranial Therapy is a therapeutic method, which aims to restore the functionality of the nervous system, strengthening the body’s natural defense mechanism. It is applied through gentle manipulations, of the order of 5 grams, by a properly trained therapist in parts of the body such as the cranial bones, in the bones of the face, in the entire spine up to the sacrum and in general in all areas of the body where limited functionality is observed. 

The developer of Cranial Therapy is Dr. John Upledger, osteopath, who was a clinical researcher and professor at Michigan State University. He created the Upledger Institute and through it this method is taught to therapists worldwide.

What can one expect from a Craniosacral Therapy (CTS) session?

Craniosacral Therapy is a similar treatment method as massage therapy. The only difference is that you stay completely clothed. 

You will start your treatment sessions with a consultation along with your physical therapist who will help you identify the troubled areas. Some methods that are used in order to increase your state of relaxation are soft music and low lighting.

The physiotherapist uses soft pressure techniques and methods in order to estimate the existence of any possible disruptions and/or restrictions that might be in your fascial system. Those techniques might help your muscles and organs relieve stress in a natural manner. These methods will improve your body function. In the end, some patients outline that they feel a sense of extensive relaxation and peace.
