Craniosacral Therapy

What is 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) or, about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system. By complementing the body’s natural healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance todisease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction, including: Migraine and headache, TMJ and jaw tension-contributing to, or often, a corrective mechanism to a degenerating cervical spine, other lumbar and sciatic pain, tinnitus, vertigo, sleep challenges, depression, ADD, ADHD, anxiety, Autism, cerebral palsy, and digestive disfunction to name a few.
