CranioSacral Therapy (CST)

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system, thereby improving the body’s natural healing processes.

CST is effective in treating a variety of medical problems throughout the lifespan. It is often sought during pregnancy to assist the body to adapt to the growing foetus thereby improving comfort for the mother. Treatment of newborns can quickly resolve problems arising from the baby’s position in utero and during birth, resolving irritability, sleep issues and discomfort. CST is also used to treat children experiencing a variety of challenges. 

CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to increase resistance to disease, as well as for treating a range of conditions associated with pain and dysfunction, such as:

  • Migraine headaches

  • Chronic neck, back and hip pain

  • Motor-coordination impairments

  • Colic

  • Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs)

  • Central nervous system disorders

  • Orthopedic problems

  • Concussions and Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)

  • Spinal cord injuries

  • Scoliosis

  • Infantile disorders

  • Learning disabilities

  • Chronic fatigue

  • Emotional difficulties

  • Stress and tension-related problems

  • Fibromyalgia and other connective-tissue disorders

  • Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)

  • Neurovascular or immune disorders

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

  • Insomnia

  • Post-surgical dysfunction

SomatoEmotional Release (SER)

SomatoEmotional Release (SER) is a therapeutic process that uses and expands on the principles of CranioSacral Therapy (CST) to help the mind and body deal with the residual effects of trauma. SER assists with the management and treatment of trauma-related symptoms including mood fluctuations, hyper-vigilance, generalized anxiety, insomnia, panic attacks and chronic pain.

What a CST treatment involves

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is usually delivered on its own (typically for an hour) but can included within a massage treatment. CST involves the gentle manipulation of joints and fascia (the fibre covering muscles and organs), particularly on the cranium (head) and sacrum (base of the spine). Recipients lie fully clothed on a massage table while the therapist does gentle compression over various body parts. Sometimes intra-oral treatment (inside the mouth) is recommended to enable the release of deep restrictions in the cranium. This is conducted in a safe and respectful way and only with the client’s prior consent. People generally describe having CST as a deeply meditative and relaxing experience and often notice significant benefits after one or several treatments.
