Because most Medical and Healthcare practitioners see CranioSacral Therapy as a gentle and non-invasive Complementary Therapy - it is considered as suitable for the co-treatment of a number of conditions.
I was speaking to my Gynaecologist yesterday and he pointed out that his training - right from the beginning - encouraged him to "put blinkers on" and work on the basis of what was proven or presecribed in the areas of medical science. He was subsequently so busy that he took all of his time keeping up to date in the areas of formal medical interventions.

In summary, in my experience the answer is yes - CranioSacral Therapy can be used alongside formal medical interventions.
As always, first check with your Healthcare practitoner.
