Do not be fooled that cranial sacral therapy is good - opposite of god's truth

The cranial sacral therapy because it is scientifically unfounded, dangerous, and based on a belief in the New Age “god,” aka “life force energy.”

Definition: Cranial osteopathy (also called cranial therapy or craniosacral therapy) is one variety of osteopathic manipulative therapies. … About five percent of physicians in the United States are doctors of osteopathy (DOs), and fewer than 10 percent rely on manipulation as a main treatment method. It is bypassing the curse by bypassing God for your answers – the spiritual roots of disease.

Who was the founder of this Modality?

Cranial osteopathy, a forerunner of CST, was originated by osteopath William Sutherland (1873–1954) in 1898–1900. While looking at a disarticulated skull, Sutherland was struck by the idea that the cranial sutures of the temporal bones where they meet the parietal bones were “beveled, like the gills of a fish, indicating articular mobility for a respiratory mechanism.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Craniosacral_therapy

What was his/her spirituality?

New Age – your body can heal itself. You are your god.

What culture did it come out of?

“Cranial manipulation has been practiced in India for centuries and was also developed by the ancient Egyptians and members of the Paracus culture in Peru (2000 BC to 200 AD).
