Craniosacral Therapy

What is Craniosacral Therapy?

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system. The system includes membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.

Using a soft touch (generally no greater than 5 grams) or about a nickel’s weight, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the central nervous system’s functioning. 

By complementing the body’s natural healing processes, CST is used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease and is useful for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction, including: 

  • ADD and ADHD
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Autism
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Digestive dysfunction
  • Lumbar and sciatic pain
  • Migraines and headaches
  • Pregnancy, postpartum and breastfeeding issues
  • Sleep challenges
  • TMJ and jaw tension
  • Tinnitus
  • Vertigo
