Over the next three to four years the concept of what is now referred to as Cranio Sacral Reflexology (CSR) was developed by the author, Dr. Faure-Alderson, as a distinct methodology combining Reflexology with Cranio-Sacral Therapy. Dr. Faure-Alderson came to link the two therapies when, during the course of treatment, she worked certain areas of the cranium and sacrum and then went on to work the ten zones of the feet. She discovered the points in the feet corresponded to the disturbances she felt in the cranium or sacrum. After 25 years of observation she documented her combination therapy.
The distinction between Cranio Sacral Therapy and CSR is that with the latter, one is accessing the CSF from a point in the foot or the hand rather than at various points on the body or the head. On the inner side of the foot and the hand we have an area for the spine where the spinal fluid, between the base of the skull on the point of Spheno Basilar Symphisis (SBS) and the sacrum and coccyx, is felt. The brain is above the distal phalange of the big toe. On the inner side of the distal phalange of the big toe is also where the occipital hole is found and where the atlas and axis are located. The 12 pairs of cranial nerves are on phalanges of each toe and finger on the right foot and 12 cranial nerves are in the same location on the left foot.
