Craniosacral Therapy is a form of manual soft tissue work that has its foundational roots back in the early 1900s.
Dr. William Sutherland, an osteopathic physician, created the infant form of the therapy following his research discovering that the cranium was made up of different movable bones, as opposed to a single stagnant mass.
He called his work Cranial Osteopathy, which was then further researched and expanded upon by Nephi Cotton, a chiropractor, who named his techniques Craniology. It wasn’t until the 1970s that craniosacral therapy evolved into its current form as a result of the work of Dr. John Upledger, another osteopath, and his colleagues.
