What is Cranial Release Technique ?
Cranial Release Technique is a natural, holistic approach to health care and healing. Many years ago an American Osteopathic physician, Dr. William Garner Sutherland, discovered that there was a movoment of the bones of the head (cranium) - of which there are 22 in number- and that this involuntary movement takes place throughout life. It is like a rhythmic opening and closing which takes place around the joints between the bones. The CRT approach relates to the role that the involuntary movement of the cranial based therapies. The craniosacral system is a total unit, and is the engine of just about every process taking place in the body. If it is flawed, then so are the body's normal processes performing below par - irrespective of whether "symptoms" are present or not. There is only one state of structural normality (and abnormality), and that is determined at the cranial level. Cranial Release Technique is the unique system that addresses that need by bringing the body inti total (global) balance.

Why haven't I heard of the Cranial Release Technique before?
Many reasons - but the main one is probably due to skepticism, especially among the professionals, that such a major leap forward was possible. There were also doubts in some quarters about the validity and existence of the involuntary mechanism itself. The tide is now turning strongly that the Cranial Release Technique is at the leading edge in getting to the real source of so many disorders.

What is the difference Cranial Release Technique and other cranial techniques?
The Cranial Release Technique addresses a level in the causative processes never before realized. Dr. Rawlings belives every one of us arrives in the world structurally (and therefore physiologically) "flawed" in varying degrees. The Cranial Release Technique is a therapeutic approach designed to recognize not only this, but also the nature of the "flaw" and what needs to be done about it.

How do I know whether The Cranial Release Technique is appropriate for my health problem(s)?
Without knowing the nature and history of your situation it is impossible to say. However, the Cranial Release Technique addresses weaknesses in the various levels at which we all function. It is important to note that these aforementioned "flaws" provide the fertile soil for the breakdowns may manifest as back problems, female disorders, skin problems or any of the plethora of dysfunctions/disorders to which we are subject to. It is because the nature of the underlying weaknesses is not properly understood that Dr. Rawlings believes that so many health problems, including injuries, go unresoved. It is, however, recommended that consultation with your normal health professional should always take place before seeking help with other professionals.

How does it feel?

That does CRT do?
Cranial Release Technique seeks to correct malposition of the skull bones in their entirety, as a global unit, to facilitate healing on a global level . this enables the body to unwind its long-held tension in the dural system; the system responsible for all of life’s functions. Cranial Release also bring about changes/improvements in the body’s internal nutritional level. That is, assisting the body in such areas as improved assimilation of the food elements within the system and increased circulation (blood supply).

How can a single, cranial  technique like CRT achieve such dramatic results?
Dr.Rawlings believes that the craniosacral system is a total unit, and is the 'engine' of just about every process taking place in the body. If the craniosacral system is flawed, the body’s normal processes are performing below par-irrespective of whether 'symptoms' are present or not. There is only one state of structural normality (or abnormality), and that is determined at the cranial level. The Cranial Release Technique is the unique system that addresses those structural needs by bringing the body into total balance. We refer to this as global balance.

Why would you do this technique on children?
Most often, children develop and grow the way that they do because of how they were positioned inside the Mother’s womb. If Mom’s pelvis was torsioned due to her primary cranial distortion, then her children develop accordingly. It is crucial to check babies and children as early as possible to kick start their Primary  Respiratory Mechanism in an optimal manner.

Is the Cranial Release Technique useful for injuries - sports, auto accidents, home, industrial, ect?
The Cranial Release Technique is almost always the first choice of treatment once localized traumas such as fractures have been excluded. Most injuries carry a major component of the underlying weaknesses refered to above.

Doesn’t "total health" require change in such areas as nutrition, lifestyle etc?
In western society the trend in these  areas has certainly been decreasing. Though changes are often desirable, they are not always practical. In spite of these trends, we find that changes in the body’s functionality through Cranial Release Technique wills still bring about major improvements in the person’s wellbeing. Dr.Rawlings believes that the Cranial Release Technique can also bring about improvements in the body’s internal nutritional level. In other words , due to improvements in such areas as assimilation of food elements within the system as well as increased circulation (blood supply) one’s nutritional profile may be enhanced.

Does the Cranial Release Technique involve any other adjuncts such as herbs, needling and medications?
No The Cranial Release Technique is entirely non-invasive. The Cranial Release protocol is highly specific and the patient will be aware of nothing other than what will seem like a gentle stretch of the neck. There is obviously much more to it than that but the whole thrust of the procedure is to facilitate the body to “unlock” itself under Dr.Rawlings’ guidance and allow the release of the healing from within.
