Craniosacral Therapy
By James F. Balch, M.D. and Mark Stengler, N.D.
 

Craniosacral therapy is regarded as a gentle, noninvasive type of bodywork. The craniosacral system consists of the membranes and the fluid that surround and support the brain and the spinal cord. The craniosacral system extends from the bones of the head (cranium) down to the bones at the base of the spine (sacrum). The fluid within the membranes is continuously draining and refilling. The filling and draining create gentle, rhythmic, expanding and contracting movements that can be felt and monitored by a craniosacral therapist. The therapist then applies gentle manipulations to correct imbalances and reestablish proper fluid movement. Specific training is required to become a craniosacral therapist.
