1, p. 27), with one group suggesting 6-12 cycles per minute, another holding that 10-14 is normal and some indicating a far slower rhythm of CRI pulsation. There exists a wide range of disagreement amongst experts as to what is and what is not normal, regarding rates of pulsation. For example a rhythm of six cycles per minute is suggested as 'normal' by authorities such as Upledger, Mitchell and Retzlaff, whereas British expert Denis Brookes (1981) states that 'a psychiatric personality is indicated by a rate of below nine impulses per minute'.

A subsequent study failed, however, to produce a correlation between the tissue pressure harmonic of patients and the perceived CRI when evaluated by cranial experts Norton (1991) proposed that the cranial rhythmic impulse (CRI) is related to activation of slowly adapting cutaneous mechanoreceptors by tissue pressures of both the subject and the examiner, and that the sources of change in these tissue pressures are the combined respiratory and cardiovascular rhythms of both examiner and subject.

And clearly, if the palpated rhythm is an integrated harmonic involving both the palpating and the palpated individual, it will vary, making inter-rater agreement unlikely. Therapeutic implications of entrainment If we are to make sense of the interaction of patient and practitioner in both the assessment and therapy stages of cranial (and many other) treatment settings, the understanding of a further implication of entrainment is suggested bv McPartland & Mein. Huygens not only observed that pendulums eventually swung synchronously ('frequencyselective entrainment'); he also noted that there was a tendency for the heaviest pendulum to determine the frequency of the others ('frequencypulling entrainment').
