The basis of craniosacral work is in the understanding that every living being possesses an inherent source of knowledge and established effective mechanisms that are designed to guide the body in its natural process of development and growth. This process it will ultimately always strive to achieve and maintain optimal health, looking to harmonise our relationship with our immediate and wider environment.
The natural mechanisms we are embracing are continually at work, every waking and resting moment. However, the potential and rate at which the mechanisms are at work will depend on our levels of physical and mental activity and emotional stresses we are exposed to. It is easy to understand that a balance is always necessary - in every process that takes place in nature and likewise in the maintenance of our health.
