Craniosacral Therapy

In the 1920s, Dr. William Garner Sutherland discovered that the cranial bone (cranium) and the scranal bone (sacrum) make synchronous rhythmical movements. Dr. John E. Upledger then developed the craniosacral concept in the 1970s-1980s in cooperation with a team of scientists at Michigan State University. This involves a treatment method which is based on targeted cranio-sacral contacts. The aim is to make blocked tissue structures (cranial bone, vertebra, membrane, muscles) moveable, and blocked areas permeable again. The gentle contact activates the self-healing process and encourages the harmonisation of the body.

The craniosacral pulse is very subtle. To be able to feel this, I touch the horse’s body using gentle, soft movements. Most noticeable are the amplitudes in the cranium and spinal column. I provide stimuli to any points where the mobility of the cranial bone/ vertebra and the membrane is restricted. This helps to restore lost mobility.

Using gentle contact, the aim of the craniosacral therapy is to restore mobility to tissue structures such as the cranial bone, vertebra, membrane and muscles and to make dammed up areas permeable again.
