Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle form of bodywork that uses light-touch to release tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction as well as improve overall health. CST enhances the function of the central nervous system and is an effective treatment for numerous medical problems associated with stress, trauma, and physical pain. Additional benefits include: deep relaxation and a profound sense of well-being. CST is a comprehensive body-mind approach that treats the whole person.
Our bodies endure stresses and strains on a regular basis. We can only handle so much before the tissues begin to tighten up and potentially affect the brain and spinal cord creating symptoms and dysfunction. Injuries, disease, stress or trauma anywhere in the body can cause restrictions in the free movement of the craniosacral system. These restrictions can impede the flow of nutrients to the cells or put pressure on the nerves, causing pain or dysfunction.
Skilled practitioners can feel and release tensions or restrictions embedded in the tissues of the client's body. Often these restrictions cannot be identified by conventional diagnostic tests. As restrictions are released and the body begins to return to optimal functioning, many possible sensations may occur. The release may be felt as heat, pulsing, relaxation, or other sensations. Releasing these restrictions can help relieve pain, realign the body's structure, balance the autonomic nervous system, improve mobility, and help other organ systems function better. Craniosacral therapy is deep healing work for the mind and body, and spirit. By complimenting the body's natural healing process, CST can also be used as preventative health measure. CST is safe and effective for infants, children, and adults.
