Relieve Cranial Tensions & Obstructions
What is Craniosacral Therapy?
How Can We Help
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is based on the findings of osteopathic physicians Dr. William Sutherland and Dr. John Upledger. Dr. Sutherland proposed that the skull plates remain flexible throughout adulthood. Dr Upledger observed the rhythmic movement of the membrane that encompasses the spinal cord (the dura mater) and recognised its fundamental importance for the proper functioning of the body.
Craniosacral Therapy (CST)
Focusing on the central nervous system with the treatment of Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a proven practice for treating fatigue and a range of other chronic and acute aliments. For most people that seek CST treatment with us, have not had any success with other approaches thus far. Generally, CST is performed in a quiet environment, where by our practitioners will use light touch and delicate manual techniques to adjust the bones of the sacrum (base of spine) and cranial bones (head) to gently manipulate the cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) flow. The CSF is linked to the lymphatic system, one of the two systems, the other being the circulatory system that comprises the immune system. These gentle manipulations help to create optimal balance of the fluid around the brain and spinal cord.

Paediatric Craniosacral Therapy
This is a very delicate and accurate scientific process, where Caroline Rhodes uses a very gentle touch to shape the baby’s head. Often, the bones in a newborn baby’s skull aren’t shaped correctly. Using CST, she is able to correct the position of the skull plates. With over 30 years of experience and several glowing recommendations, Caroline Rhodes is the go-to practitioner for craniosacral therapy in Hong Kong.
Craniosacral Therapy for Adults
In our opinion, the skull plates are flexible for the entirety of one’s existence. Hence, they can be manipulated to relieve tension throughout the body. We treat acute and chronic conditions to help patients get relief over a few sessions.

No. In fact, this is a common misconception. My speciality in CST is paediatrics. However, many of The Body Group clients who do come in for treatment are adults.
