Craniosacral And Autism

CBS news, New York reports on therapists working with autistic children using Craniosacral Therapy.

With a touch no heavier than a nickel, practitioners claim this gentle massage can ease autistic symptoms, lessen temper tantrums and even improve a child's communication skills.

Upledger believes autism is caused by fluids in the brain not circulating properly. He also believes the emotional outbursts of autistic children are caused by the membrane outgrowing the skull -- the child, in essence, is irritable.

CST has been around since the 1930s but it was only recently that practitioners began using it on autistic children.
