I am contempalting getting traiend in Cranio Sacral. Or, anyone in the tristate area wants to teach me? Is it even worth learning? It seems pretty cool but perhaps not nearly as effective as chi nei tsang?October 19, 2005 at 3:26 pm #8105
I’ve been treated with craniosacral therapy and cranial osteopathy, at different times and for extended periods, and I can say that the cranial osteopathy helped me tremendously, while craniosacral didn’t seem to have much effect.
That’s just my own experience, for what it’s worth. Cranial osteopathy is a sub-specialty, and is sometimes called “osteopathic medicine in the cranial field.” I’d recommend looking into the Cranial Academy.
My osteopath said that “craniosacral” work is a watered down version of cranial osteopathy, and although that may be a biased view, it matches my personal experience. Craniosacral training is a shorter training and may be more practical in that sense.
Good luck 🙂

…NCR is the only way to go. 🙂
It will have the biggest single impact of ANY form-based method you tackle.

There are no docs of this in NY!?October 22, 2005 at 8:20 am #8111
I once did a one week training. It was one out of four modules of ?Cranosacral Balancing?, a form therapists developed in the atmosphere of the Osho scene.
They emphasize a soft, slow approach, very much self-experience-orientated. There are other forms used by physiotherapists that more manipulate and do.
We started learning how to feel the craniosacral pulsation at the feet and then how to induce a stillpoint by stopping the craniosacral rhythm while holding the feet of the partner. From the feet we then worked upwards, using fasciae techniques on the diaphragms, treating the spine, and in the end getting to the skull. You would eventually learn how every bone in the skull pulsated in its own specific pattern and how this related to the ligaments in the cranium, the spine marrow, the central nervous system, the muscles and the whole body, and how you could plug-in to heal.
It was a great learning experience, I would go for it!
This NCR seems quite crude to me, maybe though very effective, but more like for example kickboxing is very effective physically compared to taji or something….
