CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY

What is craniosacral therapy?
The technique of craniosacral treatment was developed in the early 20th century by Dr. William Garner Sutherland. He developed 'cranial osteopathy' on the basis of osteopathy (the art of healing bones). The term craniosacral therapy was first used in the 1970s of the same century by an American osteopath and researcher named John Upledger, it consists of the terms cranium and sacrum.

Resulting from osteopathy, craniosacral therapy promises to develop the patient's self-healing functions by working on the movements of the cerebrospinal fluid.

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

Craniosacral therapy, or craniosacral, is a gentle manual therapy that comes from the same roots as osteopathy. It is a global method which encompasses the cranial “fluidic” system, the musculoskeletal system (from the ankle to the pelvis to the last cervical one) without forgetting the visceral system (endocrine and nervous).

This therapy is recognized and reimbursed by insurance companies in Switzerland.


What are its advantages?

- Softness, comfort and safety. No manipulations with sinister crackles.
- Brief therapy. One to three sessions maximum for all osteopathic pain.
- Globality. The body is worked together up to the root cause.
- Back and neck pain, joint pain, visceral disorders, migraines, tinnitus, symptoms related to stress, anxiety or emotional shocks.


To name just a few examples.

It is an opposite approach to the materialist vision of the body from which derives the techniques of structural manipulations feeding the myths of displaced vertebrae or pelvis, false movements and short false legs.

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

“Energy guides the form and not the other way around, the soft leads the hard, movement is life. "

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

It is a proposition rather than an injunction to the body to find the movement of life. The real strength is in meekness. The craniosacral therapist always has this question in mind. "What is the primary cause that caused cellular and bodily intelligence to continue to live optimally caused this painful adaptation?" "

It is not uncommon for an old ankle sprain, even resolved, to be the primary cause of a symptom of neck pain, for example. Why is this ankle, which today functions very well, is still taken into account as failing by the body?


This is a whole different way of approaching the body.

Like any complementary therapy, it is essential to collaborate with a treating physician in case of doubt.

Soft osteopathy

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

Soft osteopathy is a holistic therapeutic method, a manual curative approach that does not only deal with the musculoskeletal system, but also the function of internal organs and the craniosacral system.

The principle is based on the optimal development of the self-healing forces by the harmonization of the functional balance of all the structures of the human body. It is a recognized method for combating back pain, neck and spine problems, injuries due to sports activities, headaches and migraines, bloating in the stomach and intestines, by cases of constipation, diarrhea and nausea. The gentle osteopathic technique treats the joints, ligaments, muscles and organs by acting on the connective tissue and thus aims to correct motor difficulties and reduce tensions.

Craniosacral osteopathy

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

The skull and the sacrum are the bony poles, which form a functional unit with the envelopes of the brain and spinal cord. The cerebrospinal fluid which beats in rhythm with the breath is the element connecting these parts.

Changes in this system provide avenues for therapeutic work with the anatomical structures involved.


Craniosacral therapy is bodily work for which it is necessary to relate to patients through delicate manipulations that trigger self-regulation of the body, thus guiding patients towards self-healing. By supporting a person's health and strengthening their resources, positive changes are allowed to take place. It is a type of treatment that is effective at all ages and even in the event of pain or poor health.

VISCERAL OSTEOPATHY

The importance of visceral osteopathy

Visceral osteopathy will act on the thoracic and digestive organs, in particular to restore a good general functioning of the body.

Indeed, three areas interest us in the field of visceral osteopathy:

  • the thorax (which houses the heart and lungs) and the visceral sheath of the neck;
  • the abdomen (where the digestive organs and kidneys are located);
  • the small pelvis (in which we find most of the urogenital system).

These three regions must imperatively function correctly in order to:

  • avoid all digestive disorders and all tensions that can have repercussions throughout the body (both in the upper part of the body and in the lower part);
  • Limit stress (many neurons are housed in the intestinal system)


We are actually talking about so-called visceral techniques.

They concern the impact of manual therapy on our organs, our viscera.

Our organs are made up of smooth muscle fibers. When these are subjected to too important constraints (in frequency or in intensity) muscular disorders can then appear.

The visceral treatment makes it possible to find an optimal functioning of the organism.


A good functioning of the organs requires to preserve their mobility as well as their motility.

Mobility defines the movement of the organ in relation to other visceral elements.

Motility concerns the intrinsic movements of the organs.

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

A visceral disorder will affect its functioning. But will also be at the origin of chronic pathologies at a distance.
