Cranial osteopathy was developed by William Garner Sutherland based upon how the 26 bones of the skull are connected by modified joints, which allow a degree of movement to be expressed through the skull, membranes, fluids and brain within. The motion can also be felt throughout the body and is beyond our voluntary control and is also called involuntary motion.
