Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy also called CST, or cranial osteopathy, it is a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on technique. Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve health and performance.

Therapists gently work with the body as a whole but focus is on the spine and the skull, and its cranial sutures, diaphragms, and fascia. By using the hands as fine discriminating tools, applying light pressure(about 5 grams).

Patients remain clothed during a treatment and treatments generally are one hour long.

 

How a treatment helps:

    •    helps restore normal cranial mobility

    •    releases abnormal myofascial restrictions and tensions in the body

    •    releases abnormal restrictions in the head

    •    eases restrictions of nerves

    •    optimizes cerebrospinal fluid movement through the central nervous system

    •    helps restore misaligned bones to their proper positions (assisting troubles with back, hips, shoulders, knees)
