Therapies - Craniosacral Therapy

Dr William Sutherland, ostheopath, dicovered over 100 years ago, that at a deep level of our physiological functioning all healthy, living tissues subtly "breathe" with the motion of life - a phenomenon that produces rhythmic impulses which can be palpated by sensitive hands. Contrary to popular belief Dr Sutherland realized that cranial sutures were, in fact, designed to express small degrees of motion. After many years of research he demonstrated the existence of this motion, which he referred to as the "Breath of Life." Furthermore, Dr Sutherland discovered that the motion of cranial bones is closely connected to subtle movements that involve a network of interrelated tissues and fluids at the core of the body; including cerebrospinal fluid (the 'sap in the tree'), the central nervous system, the membranes that surround the central nervous system and the sacrum.

Dr Sutherland realized the important role played by the fluids in the body (particularly cerebrospinal fluid) in helping to disseminate the subtle rhythms produced by the Breath of Life throughout the body.

Thus, the ability of cells and tissues to express their primary respiratory motion is a critical factor in determining our state of health.

During the course of our lives our bodies become conditioned according to how we’re able to deal with any stresses or traumas. If stresses or traumas are overwhelming, they become locked in the body as sites of inertia. These sites of inertia affect the natural rhythmical movements of the Breath of Life and so hinder the ability for health to manifest at a cellular level.

The practitioner by "listening through the hands" to the body's subtle rhythms will find patterns of inertia or congestion, places where issues are held and then follow the natural priorities for healing.

This is done in a non-invasive way as the practitioner subtly and gently encourages the conditions that allow for the reemergence of primary respiratory motion.

The craniosacral therapy offers at Magic Fingers Clinic is usually combined with massage therapy to help with any neck condition, insomnia, stress, headaches and migraines.
