The CSRI Difference

Martine Faure-Alderson

In a groundbreaking work, Dr Faure-Alderson has taken Reflexology to a new level through the integration of Osteopathy, Cranio-Sacral Therapy and Reflexology. CSR is a leap forward in the application of reflexology. It harnesses the extraordinary potential of the creative brain to bring homeostasis and health through reflexology.

The Therapy

Osteopathy, Cranio-Sacral Therapy and Reflexology

CSR is a therapeutic method combining the use of pressure on specific areas of the foot, which relate to the 12 cranial nerves and to the pulse of the Cerebro-Spinal Fluid (CSF) that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. The distinction between Cranio-Sacral Therapy and CSR is that while the former accesses the CSF from the head, the latter can achieve that from a point in the foot, hand and the head.

In Practice

How It Works

CSR works in treating trauma and stress-related conditions by balancing the distribution of CSF within the four ventricles of the brain. Pressure applied to the specific points on the feet stimulates and re-harmonises the Cranial Rhythm – Primary Respiratory Movement (PRM). The movement of CSF can be felt in the feet as a pulse or a wave and is quite distinct from the pulse of the heart.
