CranioSacral Therapy

What is CranioSacral Therapy?

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle hands-on, non-invasive manual therapy. This full body approach uses minimal pressure to avoid the natural guarding effect of the body. The low pressure is designed to be respectful and negotiate with the body.

A trained therapist can feel the CSR in the body by lightly touching different areas of the body, particularly the base of the skull or the sacrum. During a session, they feel for disturbances in the rate, amplitude, symmetry, and quality of flow of the CSR. By using gentle touch, the therapist attempts to balance the flow of the CSR and release fascial restrictions. Once the cerebrospinal fluid moves freely, the body’s natural healing responses can function.

What does CranioSacral Therapy address?

CranioSacral Therapy addresses anatomy and function as well as the emotions. In other words, CranioSacral Therapy bolsters every aspect of your health: it releases muscles and fascia, supports the immune and circulatory systems, releases physical and emotional pains and dysfunctions. Clients often wonder at the end of a session: “Why didn’t I do this earlier?”

What does CranioSacral Therapy treat?

Craniosacral therapy can be effective in treating many disorders. We often use it as part of a treatment plan in addressing neck pain, back pain, sacral/pelvic pain, headaches, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, sciatica, chronic sinus infections, chronic fatigue, depression, TMJ dysfunction, whiplash, gastrointestinal issues, sympathetic nervous system overdrive, and stress.
