"The forces that made the body have the power to heal the body."
Cranial Sacral Therapy is a gentle and subtle form of healing that works at the deepest level of our physiological functioning. In the human system, living tissues and cells subtly "breathe", pro pulsed by the mysterious forces present at conception. These rhythmic pulsations can be detected by the sensitive practitioner to bring about profound changes in physiology and consciousness. There are various schools of thought within the Cranial Sacral field of study that range from a great deal of practitioner intervention to very little manipulation at all.
Here at Roots and Wings, we offer Bio Dynamic Cranial Sacral Therapy, a particular approach to cranial work that was developed by Dr. William Sutherland near the end of his long career as an Osteopathic physician. Bio Dynamics rests upon the belief that there is an inherent principle of order within the human system that is always trying to express health. In this kind of cranial sacral work the practitioner is simply there to support this movement towards health by moving into a deep therapeutic stillness, into a meditative consciousness. This state of consciousness can amplify the inherent health in the system as it emerges through what Dr. Sutherland coined "The Breath of Life". The forces that made the body have the power to heal the body.
