To an audience or one who received this therapy, it seems relatively simple – the therapist puts his hands on the patient's body and began to move the hand without excessive pressure, randomly.
However, for the therapist, it is a complex process and is really based on a dynamic message that is given to the patient (measured perceptively through sensation hand placement).
CST is based on the principle that the skull, spine, and sacrum share intrinsic rhythm with ligaments, muscles, and fascia that surrounds them. This, in turn, maintains good lubrication in the intervertebral and facet joints of the spine and contributes to good health and function of the spine and other body systems.
This rhythm is called the "Breath of Life" and is similar to the concept of "Prana" in Eastern medicine. What craniosacral therapist aims to do is "read" or tap into this rhythm and move their hands in sync with the body to normalize the system.
