CranioSacral Therapy

“The Healing Power of Gentle Touch”

What is CranioSacral Therapy (CST)?

CST is a gentle hands-on manual therapy, safe for all ages, that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction. This improves whole body health and performance and is accomplished by working with the CranioSacral System - the soft tissues and fluid that protect your brain and spinal cord, as well as the attached bones. Few body systems have more impact on your central nervous system and by releasing these tensions it allows the nervous system to perform at its best, enabling the entire body to relax and self-correct. This naturally relieves pain, stress and strengthens resistance to disease.

What conditions are helped with CranioSacral Therapy?

CST complements the body’s natural healing processes and is therefore effective in helping relieve symptoms of a multitude of conditions. A few examples are:

  • Migraines

  • Dementia

  • Post-concussion

  • Dental Procedures (pre/post)

  • TMJ Syndrome

  • Chronic Fatigue

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Autism

  • Scoliosis

  • Neck & Back Pain

What can I expect from a session?

A typical Craniosacral Therapy session takes place in a quiet, private setting. You remain fully clothed as you relax on a comfortable, padded table. The therapist begins by gently touching various points of your body to assess the rhythm of the fluid that is flowing around your central nervous system. This allows identification of those areas of weakness, restriction and dysfunction. Delicate manual techniques are then used to release those problem areas and improve the form and function of your central nervous system. A session can lasts up to an hour or more. Results are typically seen anywhere from 1-4 sessions and can be used alone or integrated with other therapies to create powerful effects. What you experience from your own session is highly individual. The sessions are generally deeply relaxing, creating feelings of warmth or gentle pulsing in the areas worked on.
