A Brief History of Craniosacral Therapy and how it can help you:
Modern approaches to craniosacral therapy have their roots in the work of William Garner Sutherland (1873 – 1954). Sutherland was an American osteopath and student of Andrew Taylor Still, the founder of osteopathy.
I have trained with Franklyn Sills, an American osteopath who brought craniosacral therapy to the UK in the 1980s. The work of craniosacral therapy is constantly evolving and many practitioners such as myself are also trained in counselling skills, trauma resolution and other specialities which give the therapy a broad holistic approach.
The therapy is used in clinical practice in a variety of settings from private practices to University teaching clinics. In my practice, I have found craniosacral therapy to be of help with a wide range of conditions, including insomnia, migraine symptoms, headaches, emotional problems and neck, shoulder and back problems.
