Cranial Sutures

Cranial sutures are specialized joints between the skull bones of the head.  The sutures allow movement of the individual bones of the skull in relationship to one another.  The space in between the bones is filled by very specialized ligaments called Sharpey’s Fibers.  These fibers allow the joints to move and “float” without completely separating.  This movement, and its freedom, is part of what allows our body to remain healthy.  The sutures also contain nerves and blood vessels.  These are what send the signals to our body that a stuck suture may not be “right”.  Freeing their restrictions can alleviate these symptoms.  Based on his knowledge from his mentors of how the cranium works, Charlie teaches classes on sutural approaches to treat the cranium.  For more information on these classes, or how the sutures work, please go to
