The sickness of the body may prove the health of your soul.

The origin

The definition

Biodynamic craniosacral therapy

Over 100 years ago William Sutherland had a remarkable insight while examining the specialized articulations of cranial bones. He discovered rhythmic cranial impulses (=The Primary Respiration) which can be palpated by sensitive hands.

The foundation of craniosacral therapy consists of rhythmic cranial impulses. Those impulses (=The Primary Respiration) are generated by the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and include the central nervous system (CNS), the reciprocal tension membrane system, the cranial bones, the sacrum and part of the hip.


Our 'Primary respiration' is not limited to the core elements (see chapter 'The definition of CS') of the body. This respiration is expressed throughout the total human system; every cell knows this respiration. Every cell breathes, inhaling and exhaling within cycles of primary respiration.

The evolution

During the eighties, the osteopathic physician John E. Upledger pioneered this gentle, hands-on therapy. He developed manual techniques to release tensions and to restore the natural position of the bones. But he also developed courses to release emotional issues and traumas
