CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a distinctive, hands-on approach that uses a light touch – no greater than about the weight of a nickel – to treat the craniosacral system surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Stress and tension deep within the body cause tissues to tighten around the brain and the spinal cord, which in turn negatively compromises the central nervous system. Since this system controls all other body systems, the result is pain and bodily dysfunction.
Gentle CST treatment is safe and effective for all ages, from newborn to elderly. By allowing the body to relax and resume the natural healing process, CST improves whole body health and performance.
CST can provide relief for:
A typical CranioSacral Therapy session lasts an hour or more, depending on each client needs. You remain fully clothed (please wear loose, comfortable clothing) as you relax on a comfortable, padded massage table. Using delicate manual techniques, your practitioner will locate and treat problem areas while standing at various points of your head, torso, or feet. Results following the session will be uniquely individual and a number of sessions may be required to resolve a specific condition. Some clients experience a sense of energy and vigor and an increase in function; others feel deeply relaxed and a decrease in pain immediately following the session. It is also not uncommon for improvements to continue to develop gradually over the next few days and weeks.
