What Is CRT?
The Cranial Release Technique (CRT®) is a gentle hands-on method to restore the natural movement of the bones of the head. CRT releases stress, helps to regain optimal function of the nervous system, and supports overall health. The short, yet elegant technique is helping more and more patients with many different health concerns.
The Breath Of Life
Dr. William Sutherland
Modern science just recently has confirmed, what the American physician Dr. Sutherland discovered over 100 years ago: The 22 bones of the human head move. According to Dr. Sutherland, they move in a constant, rhythmic way. He called this rhythm the “breath of life”, because it is carried along tissues and fluids of the head throughout the whole body.
Distorted Cranial Rhythm
Our head closely surrounds the brain. The movement of the bones of the head is also closely related to the proper function of our nervous system. With a steady cranial rhythm, the electrical impulses flow freely, and our nervous system performs on an optimal level. If the rhythm is distorted, our nervous system falls out of balance, our resistance to stress and trauma decreases – and our health is at stake.
Dr, Sutherland also found out, that the proper movement of the bones can be restored. The various methods to accomplish this are called “Cranial work”. The goal of these methods is ultimately the same: To help the cranial bones regain their natural movement in order to ensure the proper function of the nervous system and support optimal overall health.
