Practitioners: Barbara Salatino
Cranial Sacral Therapy is based on the work of Osteopath, Dr William Garner Sutherland, who developed a new approach to osteopathy known as the ‘Cranial Concept’ in the early 1900s. He discovered that the skull’s bones and the fluids which surround the brain have intrinsic movements. Their natural pulsations reveal different rhythms and energy processes which influence the whole body and our health.
These rhythms can become restricted or inhibited in case of physical or emotional traumas, old or new injuries, stresses or strains. These blockages in the body natural rhythmic movement can build up in our body and contribute to making us feel unwell and create different symptoms.
Using a light touch on the body, the therapist can detect these restrictions and help to release them so that the body can begin to heal itself, to restore health and balance.
