The Cranial Sacral Therapy approach to healing derives its origins from Osteopathy and Cranial Osteopathy and is a light touch, non-invasive healing modality developed by frontier doctors in the early years of the United States. A Craniosacral Therapy practitioner uses their perception and their knowledge of the systems of the body to ork with dysfunctions using their hands. They used their perceptive skills to gain access to a subtle rhythm that circulates health through the body. The ability to listen to and facilitate the reorganization of these forces are the basis of a Cranial Sacral Therapy training.

James Foulkes is a Craniosacral therapist with background in both Upledger and the Biodynamic approaches.
