Craniosacral therapy emerged in the osteopathic tradition. The ‘cranial concept’ was developed by Dr William Sutherland in the late 1800’s, and continues to evolve to this day. Sutherland investigated the motion of the cranial bones, and found that all tissues in the body are inherently motile, and as such are engaged in a rhythmic ‘breathing’ like movement that permeates the body. Sutherland called this ‘primary respiration’. which is separate to and distinct from 'lung breathing'.
This inner breathing or rhythmic motion is an expression of health and facilitates communication between the cells of the body. When the body is exposed to physical, emotional or environmental trauma these rhythmic movements or patterns of health are disrupted and the body’s ability to express health is impaired. The impact of these stressors on the body may result in a wide range
of health concerns.
Massage requires little introduction as it is perhaps the most instinctual response
to any ache or pain. The benefits of massage are well researched, and the therapy is used around the world through every part of life from infancy to end of life. “Research supports the belief that touching in a structured way is a very important if not absolute need of all living beings…. Touch is… the very essence of our survival, not simply a matter of well-being.” (Fritz, 2004)
The lymphatic system may be viewed as a giant waste removal plant. It eliminates excess water, proteins, long chain fatty acids, pathogens, toxins and cellular debris from the connective tissues.
Once removed, waste laden lymph is filtered through a series of one way lymph vessels and nodes to clean and filter the lymph before returning it to the blood stream for further purification.
Lymphatic drainage is beneficial for anyone wishing to drain stagnant fluids, regenerate tissues, filter toxins and debris, stimulate detoxification and maintain a healthy immune system. It is an essential adjunct to any detoxification programme.
