..or .. What is Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy ?
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is an effective form of treatment for a wide range of illnesses helping to create the optimal conditions for health, encouraging vitality and facilitating a sense of well-being.
It is suitable for people of all ages including babies, children and the elderly, and can be effective in acute or chronic cases.
The presence of subtle body rhythms was discovered by osteopath Dr William Sutherland over 100 years ago.
Contrary to popular belief Dr Sutherland realized that cranial sutures were, in fact, designed to express small degrees of motion.
He demonstrated the existence of this motion and discovered that the motion of cranial bones is closely connected to the cerebrospinal fluid, the central nervous system, the membranes that surround the central nervous system and the sacrum.
Theses Rhythmic impulses can be palpated by sensitive hands around the cranial bones.. ... and therapy is directed to assure proper body rhythms ..
It is a hands-on healing technique, whereby therapists gently mobilize and release the Craniosacral system, which includes the soft tissue of the head (cranium), the spine down to its tail end (the sacral area) and the pelvis.
The focuse is on the movement of the cerebrospinal fluid, which is produced on a constant basis in structures within the brain.
The movement of spinal fluid within and around the central nervous system is believed to create a vital body rhythm, equally important to health and well-being as the beating of the heart or the breath.
