Designed to release pain and trauma as well as support the body’s healing through a gentle, hands-on approach, Craniosacral Therapy (CST) has become an increasingly popular modality. In Cranio-Sacral-SELF-Waves, CST expert Olaf Korpiun expands on William Sutherland’s famous theory of the “breath of life,” an unexplained power that generates corrections from within our bodies without the influence of external forces applied by the therapist. This new theory, drawing also on physics, anatomy, physiology, embryology, and osteopathy, finds scientific evidence that the original source of craniosacral movement is a resonant movement from an energy field in the universe: it is the oscillating waves of rhythm in the universe, he argues, that control all biological rhythms within all living beings. Dr. Korpiun presents his method of working with patterns of motion in the body, including extremely slow frequencies of movement which he calls “Cranio-Sacral-SELF-Waves (“SELF” standing for “Super-Extreme-Low-Frequency”). By following his approach, says the author, bodyworkers and other health practitioners can work in a more focused and productive way, utilizing practical techniques for treating the widespread rhythmic imbalances that lead to physical and psychological problems.
“In this book Korpiun explicates a state of complete unity between man and cosmos, enabling a deep-reaching dialogue between patient, therapist, and the universe. Enriching for any craniosacral therapy practitioner.” —Julia Pontiller, PhD, craniosacral therapy practitioner and art instructor, University of Applied Arts, Vienna, Austria
“Korpiun’s book opens the door to a new concept of human existence in our universe by showing the way to free the mind and restore the body to its natural state.” —Sandra Sämmer, craniosacral therapy practitioner and aikido instructor
“Korpiun presents elegant solutions that make sense and expand the craniosacral therapy technique. A densely insightful book for osteopaths and craniosacral therapists.” —Michael Grünwald, MD, craniosacral therapy practitioner and pathologist, Ludwig Maximilian University School of Medicine, Munich, Germany
