CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle and natural method of light touch therapy that works with the body, as opposed to forcefully impose changes on it. CST concentrates on improving the function of the craniosacral system. This system consists of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds and protects the spinal cord and brain. It extends from the bones of the skull, face, and mouth which make up the cranium, down to the sacrum or the tailbone area. The craniosacral system, therefore, provides the environment in which the nervous system functions. As the brain produces and then absorbs the cerebrospinal fluid, a gentle rhythmical movement can be felt throughout the body. This is referred to as the CranioSacral Rhythm. This rhythm is used diagnostically to determine the state of the CranioSacral System. This crucial system influences the development and performance of the brain and spinal cord, and thus, any restriction or imbalance can potentially cause any number of, motor, sensory, or neurological disturbances.
Using incredibly light and gentle physical pressure the CST practitioner can release restrictions or imbalances and restore the body’s normal self-healing abilities.
CST can help with a range of conditions including:
