Cranial Sacral can be described as gentle and subtle, and yet deeply profound. The therapist’s contact on the body is generally quite light, while they are assessing and listening to the innate movements and rhythms of different bones.
A natural movement pattern is smooth, fluid, symmetrical and balanced. In a disrupted state, the movements may feel heavy, stuck, lacking movement, or off balance. The therapist works to gently encourage the connective tissue surrounding the bones to respond and return to their natural pattern.
