Craniosacral Therapy is a form of bodywork or alternative therapy that focuses on gentle manipulation of the bones of the head, spinal column and sacrum. Developed by John E. Upledger in the 1970s, it’s predicated on fundamental theories related to the movement of cerebrospinal fluid and its influence on the body’s overall health.

Various techniques are employed in this therapy, including soft-touch release methods to free restrictions in nerve passageways, complemented by non-invasive manipulations aimed at alleviating dysfunction and enhancing the craniosacral system. The therapy’s application spans a diverse patient demographic, encompassing conditions from chronic pain to emotional disorders.

Despite its popularity, Craniosacral Therapy remains contentious within medical circles due to its lack of empirical evidence. Several studies have questioned its efficacy while others suggest potential benefits, establishing it as an area warranting further scientific exploration.
