A light-touch approach that can create dramatic improvements in your life
Cranio-Sacral Therapy (CST) is a light-touch approach that can create dramatic improvements in your life. It releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance.
Few body structures have more influence over your health and well-being than your central nervous system. And few body systems have more impact on your central nervous system than the craniosacral system – the soft tissues and fluid that protect your brain and spinal cord.
Every day you endure stresses and strains and your body absorbs them. But your body can only handle so much tension before the tissues begin to tighten and potentially affect the brain and spinal cord. Unfortunately, this can compromise the function of the central nervous system – and the performance of nearly every other system in your body.
CranioSacral Therapy releases those tensions to allow the entire body to relax and self-correct. Using a gentle touch – starting with about the weight of a nickel – practitioners evaluate your internal environment. Then they use distinctive light-touch techniques to release any restrictions they find. By freeing the central nervous system to perform at its best, CranioSacral Therapy naturally eliminates pain and stress, strengthens your resistance to disease and enhances our health and well-being. And because it is so gentle, CranioSacral Therapy can be effective for all ages, from newborns to elders.
CranioSacral Therapy improves your body’s ability to take better care of you. It helps relieve a full spectrum of pain, illness and dysfunction, including:
– Migraines and Headaches
– Chronic Neck and Back Pain
– Stress and Tension-Related Disorders
– Motor-Coordination Impairments
– Infant and Childhood Disorders
– Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
– Chronic Fatigue
– TMJ Syndrome
– Central Nervous System Disorders
– Learning Disabilities
– Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
– Orthopaedic Problems
– And many other conditions
A CranioSacral Therapy session can last up to an hour or more. It 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 the therapist is working on.
