"...the CSTA [CranioSacral Therapy Association of the UK] say that it is possible CST could work, because there is no evidence to show that it doesn’t! 

During a conversation with the ASA [Advertising Standards Authority] it was mentioned that they were expecting to hear from the CSTA’s solicitors. The [ASA's] adjudication says that the CSTA maintain that the wording they used was not proscribed by law. They said that in the strictest terms of contractual law, their leaflet merely advised readers on the potential of their services.  Well if the evidence isn’t there to support your claims, I suppose you may as well look for a legal get out clause. But in doing that they are forgetting that treatment claims should be based on the best research evidence available, not try hiding behind contractual law…

This all started with a leaflet picked up in a local health food store, the title of that leaflet was What Is Craniosacral Therapy? Based on the contents of that leaflet, the CSTA’s evidence and their spirited defence, the ASA’s answer was ….. Unsubstantiated, Untruthful, and Misleading."   SkepticBarista blog (7th September 2010)
