Tension in these regions could contribute to neural entrapment and negative neural function ... restoring maximum mobility to the osseous cranium allows homeostatic mechanisms to restore balanced membranous tension, enhance venous flow, reduce neural entrapment, and permit normal CRI rate, rhythm, and amplitude. As will be seen when techniques are presented in later chapters, one of the methods commonly utilized to reduce or normalize sutural restrictions involves what is called a 'V-spread', in which light compressive pressure (grams usually ounces at most) is applied diagonally across the cranium towards a sutural restriction which is straddled by two palpating fingers.
Assessment following systematic review and critical appraisal of the scientific evidence on craniosacral therapy. It concluded that: The research evidence reviewed supports the theory that the adult cranium is not always solidly fused, and that minute movements between cranial bones may be possible. However, no research demonstrated that movement at cranial sutures can actually be achieved by manual manipulation (Green et al 1999). 6. 2.

Verhulst & Onghena (1997) have found that there are periods of life when changes contributing to sutural closure become more active. They report evidence that sutural closure exhibits a definite periodicity, with the most extreme activity occurring between the ages of 26 and 30. Apparently further periods of activity take place in the fifties and the late seventies. Their research shows that in the eighth decade of human life there remains a potential for further closure of sutures, which underlines the fact that residual movement potential persists, even into advanced age.
