Craniosacral Massage: A Basic Understanding & History

21 Dec 2016

Here at our Minneapolis massage school, even though it’s cold outside, we’ve got some hot topics we’ll be exploring in our continuing education courses for professional massage and shiatsu therapists. One of those classes is coming in January 2017 – Craniosacral Techniques. If you’re a bodywork professional looking to add an in-demand skill to your toolkit, this might be just what you’re looking for.  

What is Craniosacral Massage?

This technique – also called CranioSacral Therapy, is a relatively new modality that has arisen here in the U.S. We say ‘new,’ because in comparison to many bodywork therapies that are centuries old, this one has its roots in more recent times, namely the early 1900s. It was developed by an osteopathic doctor, William Sutherland, who was intrigued by the structure of the skull. What he found was that contrary to what the general medical community believed (that the parts of the skull become fused as the child grows), there is movement in the cranium throughout life. Osteopathic doctors still work with cranial osteopathy. But the principles behind Dr. Sutherland’s work are also made use of by bodywork professionals who offer craniosacral massage.

If you’d like to read up on this intriguing technique, its background and its value, the Massage Therapy Foundation’s online magazine, Massage Today, has a great in-depth article, which includes research references. (Click here to read this article.)

We expect that our January class on this technique will fill up quickly, so if you’re interested in being a part of this course, contact us soon. Registration is due by January 5th, and the three-weekend class begins January 21, 2017. Click here for class details and registration info. It’s open to both grads and current bodywork students.
