Cranial rhythm is an inherent pulsation observed within the craniosacral system, a physiological system encompassing the brain and spinal cord. This rhythmic motion, also known as craniosacral rhythm, is detected via palpation and is said to emanate from the production and reabsorption of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).

Its frequency generally ranges between 6 to 12 cycles per minute. The existence and clinical relevance of cranial rhythm are subjects of debate in medical science. While some practitioners assert its therapeutic value in craniosacral therapy, a form of bodywork that uses gentle touch to manipulate various parts of the cranium, mainstream medicine often views it with skepticism due to lack of empirical evidence.

In spite of this contentiousness, cranial rhythm remains central in certain alternative medicine practices where its manipulation is used to treat a variety of conditions including migraines, traumatic brain injuries, and chronic fatigue syndrome.
