Craniosacral – The Techniques

This collection contains posts on craniosacral techniques. This includes biodynamic, osteopathic, craniostructural, and CranioMuscular approaches. It also contains a few key concepts related to craniosacral techniques.

My Perspective

I am not one of those who divisively embraces one technique. Instead, I appreciate and employ several different approaches. There are various reasons why. But, within any given session, the combination I use will depend on the client’s case and interests. Don’t get me wrong. I have one method that is my most reliable tool. It blends well with bodywork and other techniques. However, I readily employ those different approaches when they are the better tool for the job.

Integrative Craniosacral Manual

Many of the posts in this collection are sections from the manual on Integrative Craniosacral. It covers a wide range of topics including principles, methodology, anatomy, techniques, protocols, and worksheets. This video is a 5-minute review of the content.

This collection will continue to grow as sections are updated and revised for content and readability.
