Craniosacral therapy is a form of gentle, light-touch therapy which claims to manipulate the skull joints, and/or the joints of the spine and pelvis. This is described by those who practice the therapy as a means of affecting the pressure and circulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). There is controversy around its use and the described benefits, partly as the idea of manipulation to influence CSF fluid circulation has not been proven in animal studies and research has shown that it is breathing which may cause CSF to circulate.
