The craniosacral method is rooted in the
experiences and realizations of Dr. William Garner Sutherland, an
american osteopath, who specialized in the work with the
primary respiratory mechanism in the first half of the 20th century. He
coined the term "Breath of Life" and "Primary Respiration".
Craniosacral osteopathy has been further developed by different
osteopaths. In the 1980’s it has been made available for the first time
to professionals outside the osteopathic community. It became possible for other health care professionals
to learn this work.
Since then the craniosacral field has expanded and developed into an independent form of therapy.
steps in the 1990’s have brought a differentiated understanding and
since then a variety of craniosacral approaches are being taught.
The biodynamic approach is pioneering new insights and is at the forefront of continuing development.
