Craniosacral therapy is a very gentle, hands-on approach to dealing with problems in the craniosacral system, otherwise known as the membranes and fluids which surround the brain and spinal cord. It helps you naturally free yourself from the physical and emotional pain, stress and discomfort and strengthen resistance to disease and promote health and well-being.

CST emerged from the Osteopathic profession. Founder Cranial Osteopathy, William Sutherland came to the conclusion in the early 1900s that the bones of the skull have motion. He did further research and came to prove this.

Then came Dr. John Upledger, he coined the term Craniosacral Therapy and is a true pioneer in this area. The discovery of Dural Pulse by Dr. John E. Upledger is the basis for innovative work which he would later coin as Craniosacral Therapy. He helped in the operation and asked to hold the dural tube.

But the dural tube is very difficult to hold still and looked as if there was a rhythm about it. From there he looks more into this. From 1975 to 1983, Dr. Upledger was a professor of biomechanics at the College of Osteopathic Medicine at Michigan State University.

While he was there he led a team of anatomy, physiology, biophysics, and bioengineers who performed and published clinical research that formed the basis for Craniosacral Therapy. Craniosacral system has a pulse course of the circulatory system and your respiratory system.
