How Does Craniosacral Therapy Work?
Craniosacral therapy (CST) was developed by osteopath John Upledger in the 1970s. The premise behind CST is that therapeutic touch can manipulate the synarthroidal joints of your cranium, releasing tension deep inside you.
Once this tension is released, you can get relieved from the excessive pain, and you will also get improvement in the functions in your body. You can also look for the best Cranio-sacral therapists online.

Because the focus is on the beginning and end of your spine, it is the central nervous system of your most immediate help. And because of the central nervous system is connected to the rest of your body, CST can have far-reaching effects on your health, including the treatment and prevention of disease.
Craniosacral therapy is based on the premise of the fact that your brain and spinal cord membranes consist of three layers. The outer layer is the dura mater and louder and waterproof. The middle layer is the arachnoid mater, which is more subtle.
The pia mater is the innermost layer, and the most delicate because it carries with it the blood vessels and follows the contours of the brain and spinal cord. Among the three layers of membranes (also called 'fascia') is the cerebrospinal fluid, which helps to lubricate and cushion them.
Craniosacral therapists believe that cerebrospinal fluid rhythmic walk through the rise and fall of volume and pressure beat in the range of 6 to 12 cycles per minute.
