Over a century ago, Dr. William Sutherland discovered that bodily tissues “breathe,” creating a subtle rhythm detectable to sensitive hands. By listening to the rhythms of the body, an experienced Craniosacral Therapist can help to access the body’s healing abilities. This can lead to an improvement of the mind, body and spirit.
Dr. Sutherland’s work demonstrated that the body is an interconnected system; the motion of cranial bones is intricately connected to the motion of the body’s tissues and fluids. He identified three distinct rhythms within this system: the cranial rhythmic impulse, the mid-tide, and the long tide. By understanding these rhythms, internal balance can be restored and health can be improved.
