Cranial Sacral Therapy is rooted in principles of Osteopathy where Andrew Still acknowledged that the body is self-correcting and functions as one unit. He was interested in looking at restrictions in the body to support increased function and health. William Sutherland contributed further to the field by his findings that the cranial bones move and symptoms occurred in the body when pressure applied to the cranial bones. John Upledger, an Osteopathic physician, in observing and studying the rhythmic pulsation and teaching principles of cranial techniques was interested in teaching to those who were not osteopathically trained. These unfolding events led to his development of Craniosacral Therapy.

Cranial Sacral Therapy is working primarily with the cranial and sacral bones, cranial rhythm, cerebrospinal fluid, fascia, membranes and tissues connected with the central nervous system. Cranial Sacral Therapy facilitates the unwinding and releasing of tension and restriction in the body through light touch while supporting an individual to move towards health and balance.
