Craniosacral therapy a scam?

Doc, I recently heard about craniosacral therapy. I've heard that it's supposed to help release tension stored in one's tissues; tension caused by accidents or falls one may have had. Is this hogwosh? Or has the therapy be proven to help people?

Dear Lucy
Craniosacral therapy is considered complementary/alternative medicine and is not registered as a profession either in the USA or England, so is not really scientific accepted as an important therapy. See http://www.quackwatch.com/01QuackeryRelatedTopics/cranial.html
